Sweetened Condensed Soy Milk

It has been a while since I published a post since I am now back in America.  I am excited to share my sweetened condensed soy milk recipe.  It can be used in any recipe in place of the canned/bottled condensed milk such as my Thai Iced Tea recipe or even a tres leches cake!  You can control the sweetness, which is what I really appreciate about making my own.  I hope you give it a try :-)

Servings: makes about 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:


Chicken Caesar Wrap

This is a light and fresh way to start the new year.  With a homemade low-fat Caesar dressing – that’s better than store-bought, fresh greens, and protein rich chicken breasts, this recipe won’t disappoint.

Nacho Cheese Sauce

The following is a guest article by my friend, Stephen Elliott, another fellow English teacher in Korea. You can follow his adventures in painting/illustration at http://www.sadelephants.tumblr.com

Ladies and gentlemen of the internet, there comes a point in a man’s life when he must take a stand and say “enough is enough.” For me, that day came at a buffet dinner with my co-workers where I was served a “nacho cheese” that was thin, not at all spicy, and sweet.

Sweet. I know, right?

I knew that there had to be a better way. Won’t you join me in my delicious revolution? This cheesy, spicy sauce uses processed cheese for the flavor, and a butter roux to thicken it. I know that sunds complicated, but it’s actually quite simple and painless.


Honey-Garlic Teriyaki Sauce

This homemade teriyaki sauce has a balance of sweet and salty.  It has a thick syrupy consistency, unlike some store-bought kinds that are thin like soy sauce.  It is perfect as a marinade or as a dipping sauce.  I like to serve this sauce with  Steamed Mandu & Veggies (Korean dumplings).

Honey-Garlic Teriyaki Sauce

Servings: 16

-3/4 cup soy sauce (low-sodium preferred)

-3/4 cup rice wine

-1/3 cup brown sugar

-2 Tbls honey

-1 Tbls soybean paste

-1 Tbls sesame oil


Pumpkin Cream Sauce

This is a luscious reduced-fat alfredo type cream sauce which uses pumpkin as the base.  You can serve it over pasta, as a pizza sauce, or thin it out with chicken broth for a delicious creamy soup.

Pumpkin Cream Sauce

Servings: 6

Ingredients:

For Sauce:

- 1 to 1 1/2 cups mashed squash (see my ‘Canned’ Pumpkin recipe)

-2 Tbls butter (you could substitute ‘I can’t Believe it’s Not Butter,’ but I recommend splurging with real butter!)

-2 Tbls flour (white or wheat)


‘Canned’ Pumpkin

Canned pumpkin is vital during the holidays back in the U.S.A.  It is hard to find and expensive in Korea.  So, I decided to make my own using pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin/squash from Costco.  One 900 g container will yield about 3 (15 oz) cans of mashed pumpkin ready for use in my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread or anything calling for canned pumpkin!

‘Canned Pumpkin’

Servings: yields about 4 1/2 cups of mashed pumpkin

Ingredients:

- 1 (900 g) container of pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin or orange squash
