Takeaway from NutriHub Nutri™ Vegan Thai Cuisine Class

A group of 7 of us attended Teacher Vinitha’s Nutri™ Vegan Thai Cuisine Class on Sat 24 Nov 2012. We were introduced a total of 4 dishes – Vegetarian Curry, Vegan Pad Thai, Tofu Green Curry and Basil Olive Brown Rice.

 

I have had the chance to taste NutriHub’s vegetarian curry once before at their previous cafe at Chinatown and was so satiated by it that I wrote a post on it.

This time round, Vinitha used cashew nut milk instead of soy milk to make the curry. Traditionally coconut milk is used to make curries, but coconut milk has high saturated fat content, so soy milk and nut milk are much healthier alternatives.

The vegetarian curry turns out as good as the last time I tasted it. Home-made goodness!

 

Our next dish is vegan Pad Thai using organic rice noodles. Look how beautiful the noodles turned out to be! The taste and smell of lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves are sublime.

Some sprouted beans are served on top as garnish. These beans were sprouted by Vinitha and they tasted really crunchy! Vinitha said we should cut and eat the sprouts while they are young and not wait till the leaves appear. I have mentioned briefly in my previous blog on why sprouting nuts and seeds and even grains is good for us. I will explore in another blog in more detail about sprouting.

 

 

 

Next, we learn to make Tofu Green Curry and Basil Olive Brown Rice.

 

 

Vinitha likes to use organic sunflower oil and organic grape seed oil in her cooking as these oils are lighter. I also learned that it is best to soak rice ( be it brown rice or conventional rice) before we  cook them, to remove the acids and possible arsenic elements. Also, to make our rice even mroe delicious, we can put some rock salt or sea salt, as well as some oil into our rice before we cook them.

Lastly, all of us get to pack some of the yummy food back to enjoy with our families.

 

I will be back for the next couple of lessons (8th & 15th Dec), which are on vegan baking. I also got to know that there will be additional NutriRaw™ Vegan Raw Asian Cuisine (Vegan Rojak!) class on the 22nd Dec. Please refer to NutriHub’s blog for more details.

Tasty & Healthy Organic Vegetarian Food in Singapore

Some time ago, after my recent bout of illnesses (see my posts on TCM vs. Western Medicine and TCM Triumphs Again), I had the good fortune to enjoy tasty and healthy vegetarian organic food again, with my taste buds intact and my appetite coming back.

I was really hungry when I dropped in one day on Nutrihub (46 Temple Street, Chinatown), opened by Ms. Vanitha Ang who used to be a nurse and was inspired through nursing her parents battling with their serious illnesses to open an organic eatery and promote healthy vegetarian diet through education.

I ordered their special meal for the day, which happens to be Curry with Brown Rice set. Perhaps my hunger had to do with it, but the curry that was served to me was almost to die for.

It was delightfully delicious. Not too heavy and spicy. I felt that it had a homemade taste. And I suspect that even for non-vegetarian curry, one can seldom find such a curry that is light and tasty at the same time. Not to mention that it is healthy too. I overheard Vanitha telling another customer that she used soy milk instead of coconut milk to cook the curry. No wonder it tasted different and light.

It was a very satisfying meal. If you have not been to Nutrihub before, do check out their small cafe at Chinatown. For the culinary inclined, Nutrihub offers cooking classes too, even customized ones.

You must try their veggie sushi, avocado shake (with chia seeds too!) and of course the Curry with Brown Rice set, if they do have that day.

Then on a different day, I went to New Green Pasture Cafe at Fortune Centre, #04-22. I have been here quite a few times, and I always like their soup (self-serving, free if you order a meal set, otherwise just donate a dollar to the Vegetarian Society). The soup is always packed with so much homely taste that just sets you at ease.

I ordered their Zha Jiang Mian, which is essentially dried noodles with sauce. It was quite a big serving, with generous portions of veggies too. Noodles were slurpy and sauce was nice! It certainly satisfied my hunger and taste bud. Just before I left, I noticed that they serve vegetarian Bi Bim Bap too! I definitely got to try that some day!
