Pumpkin Congee A perfect comfort food dish, this Chinese equivalent to the Indian khichdi is made of pumpkin purée and rice. during these times let's always keep food wastage in mind so use anything you have in fridge! Preparation time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 1 hour Serves: 2-4 Ingredients: 1 kg pumpkin, fresh, seeded, peeled, diced into medium-sized pieces or any other leftover vegetables 8 cups / 2 lt water or vegetable stock 1 knob ginger, peeled, sliced 3/4 cup / 185 gm jasmine sweet rice, rinsed well Salt, white pepper and light soy sauce for seasoning 1 cup / 250 gm pumpkin seeds, roasted ½ cup / 125 ml chilli oil (for garnishing only) ½ cup / 125 gm scallions, chopped ¼ cup / 60 gm green coriander, fresh, chopped Method: Bring the water or vegetable stock to the boil in the pot. Add the pumpkin and ginger; simmer until the pumpkin is tender. Remove half the pumpkin and mash or purée and reserve. In the same pot add the rice and simmer until fully cooked (it takes about an hour or so). Now stir in the pumpkin purée. Season with salt, white pepper and light soya sauce; mix well. Serve garnished with roasted pumpkin seeds, chilli oil, scallions and green coriander. #homecookingwithkelvin #zerowaste #vegan

Cold Sesame Noodles made with my 4-ingredient peanut sauce😍! Guys, this is so ridiculously easy to make (1 of the 4 ingredients is water🙌); if you have peanut butter and pasta in your pantry, whip it up for dinner tonight. It’s super kid-friendly, too! I’m writing the full recipe below – but you can also watch me make it on my story (for the next 24 hours, after then I'll add to it my "recipes" highlights). Last night, we devoured a big bowl in my house and I’m hoping you love it as much as we did!🤗 * * In a medium bowl, mix together 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup broth, 2 tablespoons soy sauce (reduced-sodium or regular, whatever you have on hand) until everything is well combined and smooth. *Add a squirt of Sriracha or hot sauce if you like it fiery. Toss the sauce with cooked pasta (warm or room temp), and garnish with optional sliced scallions for extra flavor and color. P.S. You’ll have leftover sauce, depending on how much pasta you make. So start with less sauce and add more as you need it! #Digin #feelgoodfood
