bruschetta

Decided to try making bruschetta after being inspired by a simple recipe posted on Facebook. Still feeling full hours after the early breakfast!

Here’s my simple little recipe to be improved upon:

– 2 slices of sprouted wholemeal bread
– toast for a minute
– drizzle some extra virgin olive oil, and a bit of pepper
– add tomato chunks
– add cheese
– add chia seeds
– toast for another 9 mins
– enjoy!

Was busy with other things so the bread tips were a bit toasted

Michelle is one of the 2 key persons, editors and writers of the first edition of The Singapore Vegetarian Food Guide. Brought up by a Hokkien grandmother who was gifted at serving up scrumptious Hokkien dishes, Michelle soon developed her tastebuds for fine cooking. Her food and restaurant write-ups have been published in Cuisine & Wine Asia, Golf Asia, Flavours, Appetite and The Edge (Malaysia).

This event is part of a Meetup ‘Pop Up Veg Brunch & Supper Club Series’, and is an event promising good food, company & nutrition to kickstart the weekend.

Travelling. A day at the community farms

After some Googling yesterday, I told my cousin with unbridled joy, “I decided what I will do tomorrow – I’m going to spend the entire day at the community farms! Help at the Veggielution in the morning, and tour the Berryessa one in the afternoon.” My cousin looked at me wonderingly. Why would anyone fly to San Jose only to spend time in the farm??

But oh, it has been a most awesome day. Pure happiness :)
