Cauliflower Rice and Seared Tuna (Anyone Can Cook with Laureen Uy)
February 01, 2017

Filipinos can't live without their rice. This versatile white grain that goes with everything is a dietary staple for millions of Filipinos, but sometimes we need to swap this carb with a healthier alternative. My good friend and fellow rice-lover Laureen Uy doesn't find herself in the kitchen very often, but I teach her how to cook up a healthy grain-free meal that won't make you miss the texture of rice! For the main, we sear up a piece of tuna flavored with soy sauce and chili. This dish is so easy to make and perfect for those who want to cut down on rice without sacrificing the texture.

RECIPE

Ingredients
2 cup cauliflower
1/3 cup thai basil
1/3 cup coriander
1/3 cup mint
4 tsp fish sauce
juice of 1 lime
2 tsp coconut sugar
1 red chili

Instruction: Put everything in a food processor

Soy tuna

Ingredients

200 grams of tuna, marinated in 5 tbsp of soy sauce and 1 tbsp of chili garlic sambal. 

Instruction: Sear on both sides for 3 mins on medium high heat with some olive oil.

Filipinos love their rice. I teach Laureen Uy how to incorporate veggies into one's diet while still getting the texture of the nation's favorite grain.

Here's why you should be reaching for the butter instead of the margarine, as well as my all-time favorite fried rice recipe, flavored with shrimp, pork, and butter. What's not to love?

Get rid of those negative preconceived notions of China. Shanghai is a wonderful blend of traditional and modern, and chaos and peace. This may be your best adventure yet.

In this final episode of Landscapes, I talk to Nico Banayao of the Hineleban Foundation to see how we can breathe life back into Mother Nature, helping the indigenous communities who rely so heavily on her. I also make a risotto-like arroz caldo using adlai, a local ingredient that can help solve many of the country's issues.

My good friend Nicole Andersson joined me in the kitchen where we whipped up a super easy and yummy salad, and she made me put food all over my face for "beauty". Nice.
