Vegetarian Shiitake Mapo Tofu

  • 2 cups grilled shiitake mushrooms 

  • 1 tablespoon chili oil

  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced 

  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chili flakes 

  • 1 tablespoon sichuan pepper flakes 

  • 1 block firm tofu (I like firm tofu but its usually with soft, your choice) 

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 4 teaspoons chili bean paste/sauce

  • 2 teaspoons fermented soy bean paste 

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil 

  • 1/3rd cup vegetable broth

  • top with green onions 

Begin by thinly slicing your shiitake and grilling with a drizzle of sesame oil in a pan until browned through - about 10-15 minutes on all sides. While thats cooking, cube your block of tofu.

Remove mushrooms. Add vegetable oil on medium high heat in the same skillet and add your aromatics: ginger, garlic, chili flakes and sichuan pepper flakes.

Let the flavors combine and sizzle for 5-10 minutes. Add your cubed tofu, soy sauce, cornstarch, chili bean paste, fermented soy bean paste and sesame oil and mix well.

Finally, add 1/3rd cup vegetable broth and mix to combine. Let all the flavors combine and wait for the mapo tofu to reduce from the broth and cornstarch (about 15-20 mins). Top with green onions and serve with white rice!

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Buttery, garlicky goodness is this shrimp scampi! with a twist: SAKE instead of white wine. It adds a little bit of a sweeter touch but still tastes like the scampi we know and love.

The reason I swapped sake for it was because I initially got everything to test it out, right? and I thought I had white wine at home! Turns out I didn’t, the closest thing I had to it was SAKE so I decided to try it out - and it worked SO well! So here we are: SAKE SHRIMP SCAMPI!

Definitely eat this with some toasted bread or you can mix with some pasta. YUM.

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Sake Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp

  • 6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • ½ stick butter

  • juice of one lemon

  • 3 tablespoons Filippo Berio Delicato Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

  • 1/4th cup sake

  • Parsley to garnish at the end

Directions

Begin by marinating your shrimp with olive oil, salt, pepper and 1/2 of your sliced garlic cloves for about 30 minutes.

Next, heat a skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and cook the shrimp 1-2 minutes on each side until they become pink (at this point, remove them and you don’t want them fully cooked).

In the same skillet, add more olive oil, the rest of your garlic, red pepper flakes and let it sauté for 1-2 minutes. Next add your butter, sake and lemon juice. Let the butter melt, your sake reduce and let those flavors come together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add your shrimp back in and toss to coat. Serve and top with parsley! #filippoberio

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Oh hello braised short rib tacos! I am seriously obsessed with how tender these short ribs turned out. For the braise, char your short ribs, remove, then place all the below ingredients in a pot, add your short rib back in and let it simmer for a few hours. I added in Autumn Glory apples for sweetness and a hint of cinnamon; the flavor & tenderness was unreal. Shred the short ribs and serve with a simple apple slaw using the Autumn Glory apples on the tacos.

These apples are perfect for cooking in braises or stews to add extra flavor but are also just as good as a snack that you can have with your favorite dip (mine would be peanut butter or almond butter!) I particularly love them in this recipe because the apples become such an important part of the flavor because it adds most of the main seasonings that it's giving to the short ribs and helps them become extra tender for shredding.

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs short ribs

  • 2 white onions

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 2 cans, 14.5 fl oz diced tomatoes

  • 2 Autumn Glory Apples

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon apples cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup water

Apple Slaw

  • 2 Autumn Glory Apples, thinly sliced

  • 1⁄2 thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon mayo

  • 1⁄2 lemon

  • salt and pepper

  • For the Tacos

  • Tortilla and your favorite toppings

Directions

Begin by chopping your onions, apples and garlic. In a deep pot, char and cook your short ribs until all sides are a dark brown. Remove. In the same pot, add your onions, apple and garlic. Sweat out for 2-3 minutes on medium high heat.

Add back in your short ribs and mix well. Next, add in your diced tomatoes, red wine, brown sugar, water and apple cider vinegar. Let this simmer on the stove on medium- low heat for about 2-3 hours until the short ribs are super tender.

While that’s simmering, make your slaw by thinly slicing your apples and red onion. Place in a bowl with olive oil, mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Once the short rib is tender, remove from the braising liquid and shred. Serve with your slaw on tortillas and your favorite taco toppings.

Make your tempura frying batter by mixing tapioca flour, white rice flour and all purpose flour. Mix well. Slowly add in your seltzer and mix well so there are no lumps. If you see the batter is too watery, add more flour.

Dredge your chicken in the batter and fry in HOT canola or vegetable oil until super crispy and fried and cooked on the inside (around 10-15 minutes for the party wings). Serve with your favorite dip and/or rice!

  • Sugar to taste (I used about 1 tablespoon)

For the Caramelized Apples

  • 1 Autumn Glory apple, cubed

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon oil (you can use butter instead if you prefer)

Directions

Heat a pot with a drizzle of olive oil. Add your onions, garlic, ginger, cubed butternut squash and cubed apples and let everything sauté for 10-12 minutes. The Autumn Glory apple’s are naturally sweet, caramel flavored with notes of cinnamon that are perfect for this recipe!

Next add your coconut milk and vegetable broth. Season with salt, pepper and sugar as needed. Let the components and liquid simmer for about 30-45 minutes until the squash and apples are fork tender.

In the meantime, start to make your caramelized apples. Place a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet and add your apples, cinnamon and brown sugar. Mix every 1-2 minutes until the apples are caramelized and the brown sugar and cinnamon is cooked through the apples. Set aside.

Place your soup mixture in a blender or use an immersion blender to blend the soup until all mixed through and creamy. Heat on medium-low and season as needed. Serve and top with your caramelized apples!
