Tip of Stefano:

Using bhut jolokia chilli

In this dish we will be using bhut jolokia chilli (also known as ghost peppers). Bhut jolokia is the hottest chilli in the world, and on the Scoville scale it measures 950 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. Please don’t forget this when using the chilli.

How to cook green asparagus

We are all familiar with ‘white gold’ – white asparagus. It’s best to cook this asparagus in a special pot, which makes it easier to cook the asparagus because they can be placed upright in it. Although the green variant is not as popular, green asparagus is much easier to cook and is also very healthy. The difference between the white and the green asparagus is that the green asparagus grows above ground.  Green asparagus is stronger and has a spicier taste. Green asparagus also contains more vitamins and is available year-round. And so not only is green asparagus very delicious, it is also very healthy! Cook green asparagus in a pot of water or fry it in a little coconut oil melange. They taste great with risotto, salad or in an Italian pasta

“Seitan can be an excellent alternative to red meat in many dishes, and when used in conjunction with the right spices and seasonings, can taste very similar. It’s also loaded with protein — that’s what it is, after all. Wheat protein.” “Hail seitan? Damn right — if you’re looking for an alternative to red meat”
