Recept: tjap-tjoi

Tjap-tjoi

De naam tjap-tjoi komt van de twee Kantonese woorden: tjap en tjoi. Tjap betekent gemengd, en tjoi groente. In de VS, Frankrijk en Duitsland noemen ze dit gerecht ook wel chop suey.

Allerlei groenten kunnen gebruikt worden, vooral de beetje harde groenten zijn geschikt. Naast de hieronder genoemde zijn dit bv. (witte) kool, prei, courgette, bleekselderij, taugé en sperzieboontjes.
Daarnaast kunnen er andere ingrediënten als tofu, kokos en pinda's toegevoegd worden.

Ingrediënten

- 1 ui
- 1 teentje knoflook
- 2 eetlepels olie
- 250 gram paksoi
- 150 gram wortel
- 150 gram venkel
- 1 1/2 dl water
- 100 gram kastanjechampignons
- 1/2 eetlepel geraspte gemberwortel
- (kruiden)zout

Bereiding

De ui snipperen en fruiten in de olie. Een paar minuten later de knoflook er uitgeperst bijdoen, en even mee fruiten.
De paksoi en venkel in reepjes en de wortel en paddestoelen in plakjes snijden.
De groenten toevoegen aan de ui en op een laag vuur smoren tot de paksoi geslonken is. Dit duurt ongeveer 10 minuten. Daarna het water en de gember toevoegen en nog een paar minuten stoven. De groenten moeten liefst enigzins knapperig blijven.

Serveersuggestie

Opdienen met rijst, pindasaus en gebakken tempeh.

Globesity: Fat's New Frontier reveals the outrageous eruption of a worldwide corpulence in countries where not so long ago famine was number one health issue. In China the usage of sugar and oil has led to rapid enlargement of waistlines; in Brazil global food companies have basically changed the usual daily intakes of food and sent the national scales spinning.

In India it's anticipated that 100 million people will have diabetes in the near future and in Mexico, the largest consumer of carbonated beverage in the world, where diabetes is already a headline killer and where the weight problem is so acute, special programs have been made available offering free fitness classes and bariatric surgery. If you thought obesity was just an issue in the first world economies, like the US, UK and Australia, this documentary will set you straight.

The fatness of the world is changing in ways that will amaze and possibly even disturb you. In the recent past, in many of the world's impoverished corners, hunger was the main health concern. Assessments put the number of underweight at 700 million, and overweight - mainly in affluent countries - at 100 million. How the tables have turned.

In truth, no country has succeeded to eliminate the hunger without shifting to corpulence, very quickly. Among poor and developing countries, there's not a single one, from sub-Saharan Africa to South Africa to the Middle East to Asia and Latin America, which has regulated this difficulty.

By 2010 the number of underweight people had increased only slightly but the number of very overweight people had blown up to 500 million. It's estimated that by 2030 more than one billion will be fat. We have dumped the concern of obesity into the developing economies just at a time when the numbers were starting to level off. This is a global problem and every country on the planet should be worried about it.
