CRIZ BON APPETITE

Savoring The Best All Over Town…

Another recipe that I had created during the recent Fathers’ Day celebration this year was the JAPANESE TOFU WITH SHIMEJI MUSHROOMS & WOLFBERRIES IN AMERICAN GINSENG SAUCE (西洋參枸杞姬菇日本豆腐). It’s such an easy and healthy recipe to storm out within minutes for your family or guests. For vegetarian version, you could always use mushroom sauce and omit the garlic plus the deep fried sole fish powder.

I came out with the idea of creating this healthy dish as it has a lot of medicinal values. Firstly, American Ginseng is can help to slow the absorption of sugar in food and also help the body to cope with stress. Mushrooms on the other hand can have tremendous boosts to your immune system as well as promote dietary management. Wolfberry is believed to be the national treasure of many Asian countries as its medicinal values is so broad, which include anti-disease, anti-aging, anti-fatigue, promote blood circulation, reduce stress and anxiety, promote better vision and more.
