Sausages, hot dogs and hail seitan

Plant Based Sausages

In Culatra Island Festivities there’s a bazaar.

Every year, on the first weekend of August, we have the Culatra Island Festivities in honor to the sailors patron saint. Amonst other tradicional games and attractions, there’s the bazaar. Nothing is sold at the bazaar. Well, something is solt – lottery. Yes, I also don’t undersant why is it called a bazaar, but it is what it is.

The bazaar is a wooden shed where some funny rolled pieces of colored paper are sold. Some pieces of paper have numbers on it that correspond to different items, from hair elastic bands and bottles of wine to the most bizarre things someone remembered to donate to the church.

There was one time I won a can of sausages and a bottle of mustard. According to my memory, on that afternoon was the first time I ever tried a hot dog.

Hot dogs and Milk bread

The first time I had a hot dog on a hot dog bun, I was attending to the 5th grade. I talked about this previously on this post. Until then, for me, hot dogs were served in baguettes or papo-secos (a portuguese crusty bun).

To this day, I still don’t understand why the internationally adopted bread for hot dogs and burgers is a milk bread. That’s why I would rather have a hot dog in any place that wouldn’t serve me a sausage in a sweet bread. But I was never a fan of hot dogs. Or sausages.

Hail Seitan

Last weekend I decided to make seitan. Then I decided to make sausages. Then I decided to make seitan sausages. So I did something. And it tastes good.

Instructions
  1. Mistura a farinha de glúten com a farinha de grão-de-bico, paprika fumada, pimenta-caiena e cominhos;
    Salsichas 1
  2. Pica a cebola e o alho, assim bem picadinho;
  3. Numa frigideira bem quente, junta um pouco (cerca de 1 colher de sopa) de óleo de coco, azeite, ou outra gordura;
  4. Refoga a cebola e o alho picados;
  5. Quando começar a ficar douradinho, junta o açúcar demerara;
  6. Deixa dourar mais um pouco e junta o vinagre balsâmico;
  7. Retira do lume e deixa aí de parte;
  8. Esmaga o grão-de-bico cozido com um garfo;
  9. Junta o refogado, tamari, miso, mostarda, puré de tomate e melaço de cana e mistura bem;
    Salsichas 3
  10. Alternativamente, também podes utilizar um processador de cozinha para este processo;

  12. Amassa bem, com as mãos, até formares um empelo de massa;
  13. Esta é o momento que separa os homens das meninas - o glúten precisa de ser amassado à bruta e durante algum tempo, quanto mais melhor;
  14. Há que salientar, que eu não pretendo menosprezar as mulheres - há muita mulher de barba e bigode na minha terra (literalmente) que eram moças para me arriar uma valente carga de porrada, portanto, se fores mulher, deixa-te de merdas, faz-te um homem;

  18. Forma rolos mais pequenos com cada pedaço de massa e enrola-os em papel-alumínio, fechando bem as laterais;
  19. Coloca-os na cesta da panela vaporizadora (aquela panela com água que tens ao fogo) e leva-os a lume brando, tapado, durante cerca de 1 hora;
  20. Se não tens uma panela com vaporizador, podes cozê-los directamente na água, mas aconselho-te a enrolá-los (bem isolados) em película aderente e a reduzires o tempo de cozedura para 40 minutos;
  21. Se estás a utilizar o método do vaporizador, lembra-te que a água evapora;
  22. Deixa as salsichas arrefecerem completamente antes de removeres o papel-alumínio;
  23. Frita-as na frigideira, grelha-as no carvão, utiliza-as em guisados, mil e uma coisas que podes fazer com estas salsichas, inclusive é aquilo que estás a pensar;
    Salsichas 7
Recipe Notes
  • Estas salsichas ficam com uma textura surpreendentemente boa em guisados, como substituto do tradicional chouriço;
  • São bastante consistentes e óptimas para grelhar;
  • Aconselho vivamente a experimentar estas salsichas com os condimentos que utilizei na receita, mas podes sempre alterá-los por outros a gosto pessoal;
  • Podes congelar as salsichas, mesmo enroladas no papel-alumínio - sai facilmente depois de descongelar;
  • Se não tens caldo de legumes, podes simplesmente dissolver um pouco de caldo de legumes instantâneo (em pó) em água morna;

Bagels

How was that weekend? Impeccable no? A lot of beach time and shit? Here, in Bergen, also spectacular. It rained like a motherfucker since friday and on Monday the maximum temperature was 10ºC.

Whole Wheat Bagels

I’ve been looking for some sort of whole grain flour based bagels for a long time and I couldn’t find it in any groceries shop. I find gluten-free bagels everywhere, but what’s the point on buying a product made out of even more refined flours than regular bread flour? Of course it is important to have these alternatives avaiable. I’m sure people who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance are very thankful for that, but the truth is that, normally, the final product is still quite unhealthy. Very rarely you’ll find a gluten-free product that is not made out if highly processed flours.

Well, here, at the house, we have no gluten issues and so, gluten-free bagels will have to wait. Specially because I don’t have much experience with gluten-free breads and whole wheat recipes are already complicated enough.

That time I had a bagels and shit

When I was a kid, I never had a bagel. Then I grew up, and I still didn’t have much of it.

I don’t have stories for everything.

Recipe Notes
  • These bagels are relatively small;

Corn Porridge

Sweet Corn Porridge

When I was 12 or 13, my favorite band was KoЯn. I don’t know why is this important, but I thought it would be interesting starting this post about corn porridge with a paranomasia between the words corn and korn.

It was not funny, I know, but it’s a good way to make the post larger, even when I’m not inspired. And it’s also true.

Xarém

Xarém is one of the most characteristic dishes in my region, in the south of Portugal.

If you’re not portuguese, you probably never heard of xarém in your life. Even some portuguese never heard of. Well, if you’re portuguese and you’re reading this in english for some reason and you don’t know what xarém is, I’ll explain it to you. But don’t miss the opportunity to feel ashamed of yourself for being stupid.

When I was a kid I would feel excited just by thinking about eating xarém. My grandpa would come home with small-spotted catsharks (yes, I just googled the name in english for you) and I knew we would have xarém for lunch.

There are several forms of cooking xarém in the Algarve. The most common is xarém with clams, but at my place, my grandma used to make xarém out of the fish stew stock.

Coarse Cornmeal

Xarém is cornflour based dish – this is probably the definition you will find online if you search for it. But my grandma insists that xarém is made out of coarse cornmeal and not cornflour.

When my grandma was a little girl, the islanders (in case of you being a new reader, I am natural from Culatra Island, the most beautiful piece of land in the planet) would trade fish, shellfish and seafood with the farmers from Olhão and closer cities. In exchange they would get potatoes, cabbage, fruit, rice and other vegetables and cereals.

The coarse cornmeal I’m talking about, is a very simple milling of the corn, a thick one, which is normally not even sieved through. It’s a cheap and simple process and the cereal is normally milled like this to feed chickens and other animals.

The old islanders say people used to have livestock in the Island. It’s not like nowadays. The islanders would buy coarse cornmeal to feed the chickens and ducks, but they wouldn’t be the only ones eating it. Coarse cornmeal used to be (and it still is) cheaper than cornflour. And it was good for the chickens to eat, it would certainly be good enough for the islanders.

I never heard this from my grandma, she just says that xarém is made out of coarse cornmeal and not cornflour. But I’ve heard these stories from other old islanders. These stories about food trade. The rest I just assume. Not very difficult to conclude.

The truth is that coarse cornmeal makes a just as good xarém as cornflour, if not better. Actually MUCH better, in my opinion. But my opinion is compromised, as I grew up eating xarém made out of coarse cornmeal.

To this very day, if my mum or grandma goes to the farmers market and can’t find coarse cornmeal, there is no xarém.

Corn Porridge

I swear I’ve never heard of sweet corn porridge until a few years ago. For me, corn porridge was xarém! I remember my grandgrandma eating maizena porridge with sugar when I was a kid, but I didn’t even know maizena was cornstarch back then.

I’m always writing about stuff I learnt in cooking school. Of course I learnt a lot about food just because I was in cooking school, but that wasn’t the only reason. I learnt a lot, culturally speaking, specially because of the school’s environment.

‘Til then, I was just attending to school with people from the same town or close villages, but that school was different. There were students from all over the country. The great majority were from the Algarve, of course, but people would come from everywhere in Portugal to study there. And the cultural difference were huge, of course. You learn a lot in such environment. And that was how I found out that corn porridge could be sweet.

I love oatmeal porridge. It’s almost a daily staple in my diet. I also like quinoa, millet and rice porridge, but this recipe is something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I wanted to make a corn porridge, but I didn’t want to use corn flour or cornmeal, first because it takes a long time to cook and also because I wanted to make something healthier with less processed foods.

I would say this corn porridge will please a lot of my readers.

Ingredients:

570 gr. of Sweet Corn (canned)
6 Dates
2 Cups of Vegetable Milk
2 TBSP of Grounded Flaxseeds
1 TSP of Turmeric
1/2 TSP of Grounded Cardamom
1/2 TSP of Grounded Ginger
1/4 TSP of Grounded Cloves

Instructions:

  • Prepare yourself, mentally and physically, for some hard work;
  • Pit the dates;
  • Drain the corn;
  • Throw the corn, dates and milk into the blender jug;
  • Blend it into a smooth mix;
  • Pour the liquid into a pan;

Corn 1

  • Add in the turmeric, cardamom, ginger and cloves;
    • If you don’t like any of the seasonings, you could just die;
      • Or maybe don’t use it;
  • Also add in the flaxseeds;
  • Cook it on low heat, always stirring;
    • The corn tends to violentaly bubble, if you don’t stir;
    • If you’re a masochist, place your face as close as possible to the pan and wait for the geysir of hot corn porridge to explode;
  • When it’s thick and warm, serve in bowls, with your favorite toppings;
  • Alternatively, you can also let it cool down and enjoy it cold – it gets kind of a pudding consistency;

Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

Granola 1

Pepsi and Peanuts

When I was a kid, I used to drink Pepsi with peanuts.

I don’t know why, but back then there was no kid that wouldn’t like stuffing peanuts in the Pepsi bottle, leave it to briefly marinate and then, with a tremendous hard work, pour it down the throat. Everybody seemed to enjoy it. And yes, back then Pepsi was sold in bottles. Cans are too 21rst Century. And yes, it was really Pepsi, not Coke. Don’t ask me why.

The King is not dead

Granola 1.2I have no ideia who came up with this banana-peanut butter combo. Conspiracy theories claim that was Elvis own ideia, probably demanded by the Illuminati, perpetuating this misleading Matrix prison we live in, while covering-up the close encounters of third kind with extra-terrestial beings and hiding the astrophysics laws that prove the flat earth theory.

If it was really Elvis, thank you King. I know you didn’t die. Or at least your sideburns. They live inside every one of us, hipsters, just waiting for the beard to be shaved.

I don’t know when did this become a thing, but I just tried this combo maybe half a decade ago. And I became a fan.

Banana Sandwich

Granola 1.1I even have the recipe for the best banana sandwich in the world. Before we heard about peanut butter in Portugal, we were drowned in the darkness and every kid eating banana sandwiches would be a bullying victim. Or maybe that was just in my town. Everybody in my town would suffer from bullying, one way or the other. But nobody knew that word back then. And talking foreignese back then would result in a slap in the middle of the eyes, just to put you back on your place. Good old times.

Banana and peanut butter is the perfect marriage right? And how can you improve a perfect marriage? If I was the real macho latino now, the answer would be – “with bitches”. But as I am a nice guy, the answer is simply – “with chocolate”.

Banana, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Granola

When you already have banana and peanut butter, you’re just missing the chocolate. The Ben & Jerry’s dudes almost had the most brilliant ideia, but they decided to replace the peanut butter with walnuts, when they came up with the Cunky Monkey. Such a dick heads. They could have created the best ice cream ever made, but they ended up with one just insanly good.

In this granola, however, nothing was left behind. And, on the top of that, it’s gluten free, sugar free and oil free. It’s a granola that clearly tastes like granola.

Ingredients:

5 Cups of Oatmeal
2 Ripe Bananas
1/2 Cup of Peanut Butter
5 Dates
1/2 Cup of Water
1/4 de Cup of Pumpkin Seeds (Walnuts would be even better)
1/4 de Cup of Grounded Sesame Seeds
1/2 Cup of Cocoa Nibs

Instructions:

  • If you’re using a less juicy variety, I recommend soaking them in water for a couple hours, before using;
  • Turn the oven on 160ºC;
  • Pit the dates and mash them with a fork, together with the half a cup of water;
  • Add in the banana and peanut butter and mash it all together, like if you’re smashing someones head against the floor and there was blood and brains splashing on your face;

Granola 2

  • Add in the oatmeal, pumpkin seeds and grounded sesame seeds;
  • Mix it through;
    • It is very important that the oatmeal is totally coated with the mix;
  • Cover a tray with some parchment paper;
  • Spread the granola mix on the tray (I used 2 trays);
    • The mix should very sticky and you’re probably thinking you’ve already fucked up, but don’t worry – everything is gonna be alright;

Granola 3

  • Bake it in the oven for about 15 or 20 minutes;
    • I’ve said this a thousand times, but sometimes I feel like I’m talking greek – THE COOKING TIME VARIES A LOT FROM OVEN TO OVEN! THE FOOD IS READY WHEN IS READY! AFTER 15 MINUTES, VIRGIN MARY MOTHER OF CHRIST WILL NOT DESCEND FROM THE HEAVENS TO WARN YOU THAT YOUR FOOD IS READY!;
  • When your granola looks nice and golden, it’s time to mix it a bit;
    • I used my bare macho hands to break this hot plaques in small pieces;
    • If you’re a little girl, you can let it cool down before doing this;

Granola 4

  • Take your granola back in the oven for some extra 15 minutes;
  • When it’s golden and crispy, it’s ready;
  • Allow it to completely cool down before adding the cocoa nibs;
    • If you ignored this step, you’re stupid;

  • I also used MyProtein peanut butter, but you can use homemade, as I already showed how to do here;
  • If you want to make this granola taste even better, you can add some sun dried banana to it;
    • I didn’t because I didn’t find any without shit loads of sugar or oil;

Carob and Orange Moist Cake

Carob and Orange Moist Cake

carob 1

I don’t know where you from, but you’ll probably disagree with the next paragraph.

The best oranges in the world come from the Algarve.

Many aromas and tastes remind me my country, but very few foods are best representative of the south of Portugal than the orange.

Orange is on of my favorite fruits. Even living in Norway, where basically all the fruit tastes like crap (yes, sorry to inform you, my norwegian friends, but it’s true), I’m still eating oranges on a daily basis. Unfortunately, and just as the great, great majority of fruit in Norway, it’s imported. Normally from South Africa, sometimes from northern Spain. And just like almost all the imported fruit, it’s crap. This have nothing to do with the country where it comes from, of course, but simply with the fact of being harvested too soon to be exported.

Everytime I go home and I taste an orange it’s like I remember the true taste of the fruit. “Oh yeah, that’s true, this how oranges taste like!”.

My region have many fantastic products, namely ALL the fruit. But some of my favorite are, undoubtedly, orange, carob, almonds and figs.

Food for donkeys

When I was in elementary school, I had a collegue grandson of a great farmer. They produced, among other things, carob. I know this because he used to tell us. But I had no ideia what carob was. He used to tell us that his grandfather used to feed the donkeys with it.

I never tried carob ’til I got into cooking school.

Unfortunately, and like many other products from my region, it’s not that popular over there. The great majority of it’s production it’s for exporting and the lack of popularity makes us pay more for it than we actually should. Fortunately this seems to be changing. Nowadays it’s starting to be more well known among the portuguese and having a shining place in our gastronomy.

Here, in Norway, it’s not a famous product at all. Most people never heard about it.

Tastes from the Algarve

When I attended to cooking school, I became a fan of these regional products. In one of my exams, I even made this thing we call queijo de figo (portuguese fig cheese) with carob, roasted almonds and medronho (everything from the Algarve), sided by papo de anjo (angel’s double chin) in orange light syrup and honey and medronho ice cream. Yes, very fashion, very gourmet. And really good for your health, if you’re planning to die from heart disease any time soon.

Ingredients:

Dry:

2 TBSP of grounded Flaxseeds
1 TBSP of Chia Seeds
1 Cup of Chickpea Flour (Besan/Gram Flour)
1 Cup of Oatmeal Flour (grounded oatmeal)
1/2 Cup of Carob Powder
1/4 de Cup of Raw Sugar
1 TSP of Baking Powder
1.5 TSP of Baking Soda
1/2 Cup of Roasted Almonds

Moist:

6-8 Dates (soaked)
1+1/3 de Cups of fresh Orange Juice
1 TBSP of Olive Oil
1 TBSP of Fig Compot
Orange Zests

Frosting:

1/2 Cup of Water
3 Dates (soaked)
3 TBSP of Carob Powder
1/4 Cup of fresh Orange Juice
1 TBSP of Fig or Orange Compot
1/3 Cup of Almond Butter (or grounded almonds)

Instructions:

  • Pre-heat the oven on 180ºC;
  • If you couldn’t find oatmeal flour, you can start by doing it yourself;
    • I use to grind the oatmeal in the coffee grinder, but you can also do it in the food processor or blender (if you have a high speed one);
  • In a big bowl, mix the oatmeal flour, chickpea flour, carob powder, baking powder and baking soda;

carob 2

  • Since you’re already using the coffee grinder, you can use it to turn your raw sugar in powdered sugar;

carob 3

  • Chop the roasted almonds with a knife;

carob 4

  • Rinse one or two oranges and zest it with that thing… to zest oranges… that thing that you can also use to shred carrots… you know;
  • Squeeze the orange’s juice;
    • I won’t tell you how many oranges do you need because not every orange have the same amount of juice. Instead, you have the amount of juice you need in the ingredients list. I’m a genius, I know;
  • In another bowl, mash the dates (pitted) with a fork and mix it with the chia seeds, flaxseeds, olive oil, orange juice and compot;
    • I used an all-natural fig compot, made solely with figs, apple juice and lemon juice;
    • You can use a homemade compot or any other you may fancy;

carob 5

carob 6

  • Sieve the flours mix and start adding it, little by little, to the liquid mix;
  • At last, fold in the chopped almonds and orange zest;
    • I saved some of the almonds and zest to decorate the cake, but that’s not really necessary;

carob 7

  • In the meanwhile, you can start with the frosting;
  • Throw all the ingredients in the frosting list in the blender jug;
  • Blend it until you have a creamy texture;

carob 8

  • Pour the cake mix to a baking tin you like;
    • You can use a loaf tin or a spring form;
    • I used a small springform and wrapped it with parchment paper because I wanted to make sure the cake was not gonna stick to it;
    • If you’re not using a silicone tin, I recommend wrapping it in parchment paper, as the cake tends to be very moist;
  • Bake it in the oven, 180ºC, for about 1 hour;
  • Allow the cake to cool down before you remove it from the form;
  • Cover it with your carob frosting, orange zest and chopped roasted almonds;

carob 9

  • Happiness is a piece of cake;
