Good Eats at Sally's
Good Eats at Sally's is a cookbook designed by a cancer survivor for people interested in improving their diet and preventing major disease. Its simple, straightforward advice is easy to follow even if you have never cooked. We hope you enjoy preparing and tasting these delicious healthy foods.
All ingredients should be organic and as fresh as possible
Heat in a Dutch oven over medium heat:
Cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and stir in:
Keep warm while making pancakes, stirring occasionally. Pancakes from the Chinese restaurant can be substituted here, but they will be made with white flour and therefore not as healthy as these. Ask for spring roll wrappers.
Heat large skillet over medium heat. Spray on canola oil. Make a test pancake. Then pour 1/3 cup batter into skillet, shaking skillet gently back and forth so the batter spreads into a very thin pancake. When bubbles burst and pancake is light brown underneath, carefully turn it over and brown lightly on second side. Keep on plate in warm oven until ready to serve.
For each serving, place a pancake on a plate. Spread lightly with hoisin sauce. Place 1/4- 1/3 C filling, drained in a slotted spoon, slightly off center on pancake. Place 4-5 snow pea shoots or other stout sprouts on top of filling. Roll up; serve immediately with knife and fork (those so inclined can use their fingers).
The first time I had Moo Shu (pork) was at a Chinese restaurant 20 years ago. I felt awkward with this new food, not accustomed to using my fingers for any hot food other than hot dogs, hamburgers, fried chicken, and popcorn. Now I find it fun to enjoy my cooking endeavors the natural way (I just make sure my plate is underneath to catch the drips)! The pancake is a Korean recipe with a little Iowa farm girl thrown in, and the sprout addition I learned from enjoying a Vietnamese vegetable pancake in Ames, Iowa, served there as a light hors d'oeuvre with a delicious sweet and sour soup.
For variation in the morning from my usual fruit, I fix this simple "cereal" which I eat with a spoon. Much healthier than grain cereal with sugar and milk!
Take a large fresh apple of any sort you like to eat (I use Gala or Delicious). Wash well with a brush, halve through the stem with a sharp knife, quarter, remove core, and shred with a medium-size shredder into a large cereal bowl.
Take a large fresh orange, cut in half (not through the stem end), and pierce the sections of orange pulp with a fork many times to loosen the juice. Squeeze the orange over the apple shreds, using fork as necessary to loosen orange segments.
Mix and eat with gusto!
