Shirley's son, E was the happiest. E was thrilled with every single dish and enjoyed every bite. Lucky E!
Here are her four special dishes created for My Blue Tea:
Butterfly Blue Ravioli (in Sichuan Hot Sauce)
Butterfly Blue Pea Dutch Baby (a blue pancake)
It was a tough choice and we agonised over this ... but finally we decided we would share Pandan Yakitori first. It not only stands out because of its enticingly juicy flavours but also because this is a unique dish in how Pandan is used in a savoury dish!
This recipe was made in celebration of the recent St Patrick's Day. We chose Pandan Green Tea to give that emerald elegance a boost. Shirley brought out her creativity to incorporate both @my.blue.tea's Pandan Green Tea and Pandan Powder in this recipe especially by creating PANDAN OIL! We bet you have never heard of that!
"𝗣𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗮𝗻" (𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗻𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗱 𝗮𝘀 𝗣𝘂𝗻-𝗱𝗮𝗮𝗻) is more than just a fragrant and aromatic leafy plant. It is widely grown in South East Asia and is commonly used in making desserts, cooking, and also as a daily beverage. Well-known as the Asian Vanilla, the Pandan leaf is a powerful antioxidant, immune system booster, and is also packed with Vitamin C and Beta Carotene.
Now that you know the benefits of Pandan, we can guess your next question would be - how can we incorporate Pandan into our daily regimen?
Pandan coconut juice is a simple beverage Shirley grew up with, and something she absolutely loves. It is fragrant, refreshing and delicious! You just keep wanting to take another gulp! Shirley can easily drink this all day!
Shirley is as excited as we are in featuring her @my.blue.tea plant-based food post with yet another exciting 💚 food — savoury St. Patrick's Day Pandan Yakitori!
