Food Trip: Homemade Carrot Siomai + Carrot Juice

What I missed most about staying in Baguio was that all the vegetables are fresh, plus the price is way much cheaper than the limp veggies I see on the wet market here in Manila - there really IS a big difference! If you wanna live well, you have to start eating right, and eating right starts with fruits and vegetables - the usual left behind food blocks in the food pyramid! Today, in this blogpost, I will share to you my mom's homemade carrot siomai! :D

Ingredients and Materials for Carrot Siomai, Carrot Juice and Siomai Sauce:
  • 1 kilo fresh carrots
  • 2 cans of tuna in oil flakes or corned tuna
  • siomai wrappers
  • salt
  • pepper
  • stalk of celery
  • flour
  • 5 medium-sized eggs
  • Juicer
  • Steamer
  • 5 pieces calamansi
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • a spoonful of chili sauce
  • Olive oil
Clean the celery and carrots and lightly peel the surface. Cut the carrots in medium size and process both the carrots and the celery stalks in the juicer. Measure 1/4 of the carrot-celery juice on the cup and put the rest in the fridge to chill.
Put the carrot fiber in a big bowl, add the following ingredients-
1/4 carrot juice,
tuna in flakes,
a spoon of flour (add more if necessary),
salt and pepper to taste
Crack the eggs in a small bowl, leave a spoonful of egg whites in a saucer.
Beat the eggs and mix it to the ingredients. Mix well.
Prepare the siomai wrapper.
Individually wrap the mix in the siomai wrapper and use the white eggs to seal the tip.
Cover the steam pot with a thin layer of olive oil (you could also add/use butter, if you like *wink).
Place the siomai inside and steam for 15 to 20  minutes.
Cut the calamansi and squeeze the juice in a small bowl, add soy sauce and chili sauce.

That is how we do it at home. Don't forget to put some ice on the Carrot Juice and shake it well before serving. Carrot is a good source of vitamin A. It can also melt small tumors and lumps inside the body. You can replace the tuna with grinned beef or chicken as well, but our favorite is the tuna flavored carrot siomai! Mouth-watering labor of love! All those wrapping is really well worth it!

What are your favorite carrot dish and dimsum?

The box looks cheap but decent enough. This really is the "what-you-see-is-what-you-get". Plain surface with sounds. Boo! If you are still wanting to get this, it's cheaper to get it with Deal Grocer or any other online shop. TCAT Philippines prices are so over the top! Another BOO!

I guess this would be my first and last transaction with TCAT Philippines. And yes I am unsubscribing to their mailing list! Thank you very much! >:))
