Eggplant and oyster sauce is a great combination, I loved it.

I made sourdough rye bread for the first time and it was a success. Rye bread had an interesting taste and its good for you. Yesterday I blogged about rye being healthy and today it appeared on the menu. It was sheer coincidence.

Chocolate and Zucchini has instructions for homemade oat milk. It is quite easy to make oat milk. The equipment needed is a blender and a strainer. Only 50 grams (1/4 cup) of raw oat groats are required to make a litre . The total costs works out to be a fraction of the price of cows milk. In the supermarket (where I live anyway) oatmilk costs 50-100% more than regular milk. I suppose the high cost is due to relatively lower demand.

Oat milk and soy milk (also quite easy and cheap to make) are quite delicious. I am definitely thinking of setting up a factory in my kitchen, to meet my needs!
