This weeks episode: PAI MEI COCKTAIL & KIDNEY BEANS
This cocktail could kill a lot of Bills and it was named after the Kung Fu master from the movie:
Drink that frothy delight and kick somebody in the face! If you want to find out where to get this syrup go to: KVAS Fine Beverage Co.
The Kidney Bean – once ugly, mealy and overrated – has now proven me a fool and shown me it’s true flavour and versatility! SO, IT’S A RECIPE TWO-FER TODAY! We got Cauliflower and Kidney Bean Tacos AND Rice, Kidney Bean and Corn Pilaf (a sexy “Rice & Beans”). Look for the photos on our Instagram page: @podcasteatdrink
Rice, Kidney Bean and Corn Pilaf
2 notes: if you can make this in a cast iron pan, you won’t regret it. And I’m suggesting brown rice because it is tough enough to withstand being tossed with the beans; white rice would fall apart.
1 ½ cups brown rice
1 small can kidney beans, rinsed well
1 medium-sized onion, diced
5-7 cloves of garlic, minced and smashed
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp chili flakes (red or arbol or pasilla – whatever you have)
½ tsp dried oregano (optional)
¾ cup, frozen sweet corn
Fresh kale or swiss chard, torn small
Salt, to taste
Hot sauce, to taste
Fresh flat-leaf parsley or cilantro, rinsed well and chopped
Fresh tomatoes, for garnish
Cauliflower and Kidney Bean Tacos
For the FILLING:
1/2 Cauliflower, cut into small bite-sized pieces
1 cup of red kidney beans
2 tsp olive oil
5 garlic cloves
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp red chili flakes
1/2 large tomato, diced small
1 tsp salt
Fresh lime juice
- add olive oil to a large frying pan, set over medium heat
- add cauliflower pieces, fry for one minute, then add all dried spices and stir to coat
- fry for 5 minutes, turning every minutes, then add all remaining ingredients.
- fry over medium heat until cauliflower is slightly softened, but make sure it still has a crunch.
For the COLESLAW:
1/3 of a small Cabbage - red or green - sliced very thin
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- mix all ingredients except coleslaw until the salt and sugar have dissolved. Add cabbage, stir and set aside for 30 min
For the GARNISH:
7-10 radishes, julienned
fresh lime juice
- mix all these together for a terrific garnish on the tacos
Green salsa - tomatillo - works best here
Any hummus or homemade guacamole
Soft corn tortillas work best here.
IMPORTANT: Make them one at a time, as you eat them. If they sit for a few minutes they will get soggy. This is FAST food!
