Cyclops Kale

ImageHalloween is a very special time in our house. Both Mom and Dad have their birthdays at the end of the month. Before the kids came along we would always throw a fancy dress party with friends, now its fun with the family at home. And this year is no different. The best part is that the kids are really getting into it too. We have the front window of our house decorated with one the scariest witches I have ever seen, she is smiling, which makes it worse. Last year we couldn’t even read a kids book that contained witches as Abigail would have nightmares. And this year she us dressing up as vampire witch with fangs and fake blood, now thats what I call progress. Image
Here is a seasonal meal that contains all the goodness that you need to survive the trick or treat run.

The Ingredients:
Large head of fresh Kale
1 large piece Chorizo
2 cups Wholegrain rice
1 garlic clove
1 chilli
1 shallot
1 knob of fresh ginger
2 tbsp Sunflower oil
2 tbsp Fish sauce
2 tbsp Soy sauce
2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Hoisin sauce
2 eggs
1 tea bag

The Make:

Boil rice.Wash Kale thoroughly under running water. Remove stalks and tear leaves into bite size pieces and steam. Fill a pot with water and the tea bag. Gently crack the outside of each eggshell with the back of a spoon. Making sure not to break the shell totally. Place each egg into the tea. And let them soak until you are ready to use them. By doing this you let the tea infuse each egg so that when boiled and peeled they will have vein designs all over. If you choose a special tea, say earl grey, you will also get that flavour too. Finley chop garlic,chilli,ginger and shallot. Fry off in a pan with the oil until they start to brown. Add chopped chorizo. Stir in until oils start to release. Now add rice and kale. Stir in. Add fish sauce,soy sauce,hoisin and red wine vinegar. Heat through and serve up in bowls. Place one egg in each bowl with a small drop of hoisin sauce to complete the cyclops eyeball.
