Chinese New Year Dish : Tau Pau With Mushrooms 豆包焖香菇

Chinese New Year Dish : Tau Pau With Mushrooms 豆包焖香菇


 Recipe source :  Y3K magazine, Issue 71, 3/4 -2013 ( Boon's Little Kitchen )

This lovely vegetarian dish looks so auspicious!  I liken the lovely pieces of mushrooms to ancient coins sitting on pieces of jade and taels of gold! Ah, I got carried away again when talking about symbolism and auspicious food for Chinese New Year !

The "taels of gold" are vegetarian bean curd wraps. The Cantonese called them tau pau. They are soy products and rich in protein. This dish is popularly served at  eight-course dinners during Chinese wedding banquets. I always look forward to this vegetarian dish because I love eating the bean curd wraps. 

I am cooking this for Chinese New Year.  

The  taste is absolutely awesome!

Ingredients A


1 tbsp minced ginger
1 packet frozen tau pau ( bean curd wrap/soy chip )
12 pieces dried mushrooms, soaked until soft
200g broccoli, cut into florets
Enough oil to deep-fry tau pau


Thickening Solution


1/2 tbsp tapioca flour
1 tbsp water

Mix together to form a solution. 


Seasonings


2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp sugar
300ml water

 Frozen tau pau.

Let it thaw. The pieces will be easier to separate after thawing.
Use kitchen towels to absorb the moisture before deep-frying.

Method


1.  Heat oil to deep-fry tau pau. Remove,drain and set aside.
2.  Heat 1000ml water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar and 1 tsp oil. Blanch the broccoli florets for 1 minute. Remove and drain well.
3.  Heat 1 tbsp oil. Saute minced ginger and mushrooms. Fry well.
4.  Add seasonings, water, deep-fried tau pau. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
5.  Add thickening solution and mix well.
6.  Toss in the broccoli and stir to mix well.

I was diagnosed with HSV 1 on March 17, 2019, i didn't bother seeking for medical aide because i know that the Government And medical Scientists Have been lying to us about herpes not Having a complete Cure, so I was thinking of how to get a solution, To make sure i get this Infection out of my body. I went to visiting a friend of mine who happens to be A family friend as well and she asked why i was looking so sad, i explained to her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, as well as his Website : https://drrazorherbalhome.wixsite.com/drrazorherbalhome . So i emailed him. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions on How i was to take the medicine For 18 days, which I followed properly. After completion of the Dosage the herbalist Requested that i go for a medical Test And i was amazed after my Test Result came out Negative. If you are also heart broken and also need help, you can also email him at: drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com . Whatsapp/Call Doctor Razor via +2349065420442

  12. Happiness is all I see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 4 years now, I have spent a lot of money going from one place to another, from church to church, hospitals have been my home every day. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this fateful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR Omongbe helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is dromongbenaturalremedies@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( dromongbenaturalremedies@gmail.com ) or you can whatsApp his mobile number on +2348050407265  Visit his website  https://dromongbenaturalre.wixsite.com/dromongbenaturalreme

  14. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
