Onigiri: the Japanese invention between sushi and sandwich

If sushi were to be a sandwich, it would be an onigiri. These balls are reminiscent of the first because of the rice and nori seaweed, but they are definitely related to the second because they allow any filling and because of the way they are consumed. In Japan, their country of origin, they are authentic - and good - fast food: they are usually bought in the ubiquitous konbini (convenience stores open 24 hours) and eaten with your hands at any time of day. While sushi, ramen or, to a lesser extent, okonomiyaki are already part of the gastronomic landscape of many Spanish cities, onigiri are not very visible. But in the Gràcia neighborhood of Barcelona a store dedicated to them has recently opened: Omu. Those responsible have shown us how they are prepared in three versions: teriyaki...

Four breakfast bowls that you can prepare the day before

As much as the cereal companies try, breakfast is not the most important meal of the day, and absolutely nothing happens if you don't feel like eating first thing in the morning (as long as you have something decent when you feel hungry, of course). Now, that does not mean that our first encounter with the edible cannot be one of the most pleasant, both on the weekend and daily. Our proposals today are valid for both situations, because if you are in a hurry in the morning you can prepare them almost completely the day before. There are three sweets, which include yogurt, fruit, porridge or chia, plus a salty one with couscous, egg and vegetables. All very healthy and very cute, yes, but without too much nonsense. Enjoy the video above and cook with the recipes below. YOGURT AND RED F...

Taliande salad (laab) with broccoli

The laab, also know as larb or the AP, is one of the most popular dishes in Thai cuisine, and also one of my favorites. It is an incredibly fresh and aromatic salad and, thanks to its huge amount of chili peppers, perfect for making you sweat (as if that were not enough with the heat that begins to do). It consists of sautéed minced meat - usually pork or chicken -, lots of aromatic herbs, powdered roasted rice and the traditional Thai dressing of lime juice, palm sugar, fish sauce and chili powder. This time we are going to give the protein a spin and replace it with broccoli. I do not know what degree of tolerance you have with consuming this almost raw food, but the intention is that it is crunchy enough so that it provides texture and catches all the dressing in its florets. You c...

Economy prepares the biggest reform of the Stock Market by opening it to ‘blockchain’ technology

The blockchain, the best known distributed ledger technology (DLT), sets out to revolutionize operations in the market. And the Ministry of Economic Affairs is a pioneer, introducing it in the reform it is preparing. Stock operations carried out with this technology will not have to go through a central counterparty chamber. The regulation anticipates a pending EU regulation that predicts the merger of trading activities and everything that happens after a sale is crossed: clearing, settlement and registration. It will be the biggest change in the history of the Stock Exchange. Everything comes from a European regulation even in the kitchen. And in any case, it will be a "pilot regime", although it promises a revolution: market participants will be able to use a shared database that ...

Montadito de pringá

In Andalusia, especially in Seville, there is no aperitif or lunch without its good montadito de pringá: bread and leftover stew mixed together, what can go wrong? The meat is rescued from the pot -among which bacon or bacon cannot be missing to amalgamate everything-, although one of the peculiarities is that the pringá of each house will change depending on what is added to the pot and the tastes of each one. My mother-in-law mixes bacon with chicken, beef, and pork; You can also admit, if you are daring, chorizo ​​and blood sausage but I personally prefer it only with the bacon and the bacon. Hence, then, the montadito de pringá was born, which although it varies there is something that is usually always present: the muffin bread, very characteristic of the area. If you think that ...

Make falafel like you’re Lebanese

There are many types of falafel, but I would highlight two: the crunchy, delicate and explosive balls in flavor that are eaten in few places, and the coarse, sandy mondongos that tend to create ball effect Common in too many supposedly "Arab" fast food establishments. Lebanese restaurant falafel Iakni, in Barcelona, ​​it belongs to the first category, and for me it is among the best that can be tried in Spain.

And he also showed us his recipe, which connects classic Lebanese falafel with the dish's Egyptian origins. Everything is, as always, in the video above.

Al Sistani – Al Tayeb: an important meeting between Shiites and Sunnis is preparing

The image is one that will remain from Pope Francis' trip to Iraq: on March 6, in Nadjaf (150 km south of Baghdad), he spoke for 50 minutes behind closed doors with the great Ayatollah Ali Al Sistani, nonagenarian in the black turban and major authority for the Iraqi Shiites, who see in him a source of imitation (marja-e-taqlid). On the plane that brought him back to Rome two days later, Francis was full of praise for this « sage » Muslim, "A man of God", confident that this interview had made him "Good for the soul".→ READ.

Noodles with aubergines, garlic and egg

Pasta is a very good base to prepare simple and quick dishes, and although when we think of it the first option that comes to mind is Italian - by proximity, I suppose - there are other cultures that prepare it with the same skill. From couscous the Arabs and Berbers to the spätzle Germans, passing through the Korean rice cakes, the Argentine Sorrentinos, the pierogi Poles and others that we already reviewed in an article dedicated to world pasta. As today's recipe is Chinese-inspired, we recommend using one of the types of noodles that this gastronomy offers, which are not few (since they eat noodles in any of the meals of the day, with specific varieties for breakfast). You can choose between vermicelli based on rice -normally suitable for coeliacs, as long as the packaging indicates ...
