LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

PREPARE YOUR MEAL IN THE HOTEL ROOM : BLANCHING YOUR SWEET PEAS

We travel quite a bit. Being foodies, that can be a dream or a nightmare. We travel to Kuala Lumpur quite a bit, and many people might say food is better there than in Singapore. We beg to differ. It isn’t that food is bad there. We probably just have a different palette. Food is in general more oily and sweet in that part of the world. Yes, perhaps Singaporeans like more bland food. We don’t know. We have also recently resulted to ‘cooking’ in our hotel rooms. It is not that we do not eat well or that we are trying to save money. Not that at all. We just do not get enough greens!


We are not fans of salads. We are fans of blanched vegetables. Those crunchy leafs in uncooked salad is a bit too fussy for us. Being slow eaters, salads are a hassle.

This is how we prepared our ‘snack’ in the hotel room in one of our recent trips. All you need is the trusty kettle. Hot water blanched the peas and nothing simpler and more satisfying than blanched vegetables with soy sauce or in this case, nato beans. Well sometimes, we still love our meats and savory meals.




You of course have to remember to de-string your peas.
