SRC Reveal: delishhh


Secret Recipe Club
It's time for the November Secret Recipe Club reveal: Delishhh is a food blog written by Ewa who was born in Sweden, raised in Asia and now lives in the Seattle. She has a passion for international flavor and all things related to food. She enjoys sharing her recipes and her evolving fascination with the global artistry of culinary delights. My kinda gal for sure!

There were sooooo many of her recipes that I wanted to try. Her Spiced Pumpkin Cake,  her Plum-Marscarpone Pie, and her Balsamic Glazed Flank Steak immediately jumped out at me. Her Rosemary-Parmesan Crackers are on my short list. But it was her restaurant review for Tamarind Tree in Seattle and recipe for Vietnamese Spring Rolls that were screaming my name.


I didn't have any rice vermicelli, but I had a clump of enoki mushrooms. They look similar to noodles, right!? I also adapted Ewa's recipe to match what I had on hand, swapping out the basil for mint, adding cucumbers and avocados. And I opted to use my tofu strips fresh, versus frying them.

spring roll wrapper / rice paper
green leaf lettuce, rinsed and dried
carrots, julienned
cucumbers, julienned
enoki mushrooms, rinsed and rootball trimmed
avocados, peeled and sliced
extra firm tofu, cut into long strips
fresh mint, chopped
fresh cilantro, chopped

Submerge the rice paper in cool water until softened and pliable. It took about a minute or two per piece. I made two rolls per person.

Lay the salad on the softened rice paper. I did lettuce, carrots, cucumber, enoki mushrooms, tofu, avocado, mint, and cilantro. 


Fold the ends of the rice paper over the filling. And, keeping as much pressure as you can without ripping the paper, roll into a burrito-shape. Press the seam to seal. Serve whole or cut in half with a dipping sauce.

I made Ewa's dipping sauce exactly as she instructed. It was delicious!

1/4 C organic brown sugar
1/2 C boiling water
1/2 C rice vinegar
2 T soy sauce
1/4 C Thai red chili sauce
1 T freshly ground pink Himalaya salt
 fish sauce, to taste

  7. I love making these and so adaptable to whatever I have in the house. Going to have to try your dipping sauce for something different from my usual. Great pick.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry: Thai Peanut Noodles with Chicken.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
