Thanks to the guidance from Healing Cultured World fb group members – I made my first ever cream cheese from milk kefir! 😁😁
1.Sieving milk kefir grains out after milk kefir fermentation 1
2. Using coffee grounds sieve cloth, sieve out the whey. Leave it in fridge for at least 24 hours.
This is how it looks like after 24 hours
3. Decide on your flavouring.
I decided on my basil leaves from the garden!
Besides chopped basil leaves, I also added seasalt and black pepper!
4. Simply just mix and it is ready to serve/ store!
Store in a tiny container in the fridge!
Tried it on toasted bun!
Isn’t it that easy?
While I don’t have a wonderful relationship with my mum, one thing that always remind me of her is the pork cutlet she makes for me when I was a kid. It has remain a favourite food of mine till now! As I won’t know how my relationship with my girls will be in the future, hopefully through sweet, sour or bitter – they would also remember me through homecooked food. And this is also the reason I would persist in preparing healthy homecooked for my kids!
Here is the pork cutlet recipe:
– Minced pork
– Mashed boiled potato
– Chopped onions
– Shredded celery
– Shredded carrot
– Dash of Five spiced powder
– Dash of Black pepper
– Sea salt (is optional since I used mainly high sodium natural ingredients)
Mix everything and leave it for at least 10 minutes. Shape it and pan fry/ air fry/ bake! Your choice!
Finger size ones for the little one!
