โ–ช๏ธ Duck Egg Yolk
โ–ช๏ธ Chickpea Aquafaba – (suggested replacement for egg whites which I don’t eat because of histamine issues) – RESULT – Meh – not thick enough and eggs didn’t stick together. I might try a vegan flaxseed egg white substitute and see… #experimentsineating

๐Ÿฒ PESTO SHRIMP PASTA PRIMAVERA
Inspired by and adapted from 2 great recipes from @twopeasandpod and @hiddenponies

https://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/pasta-primavera
https://hiddenponies.com/2011/09/pesto-alfredo-shrimp-pasta

โ–ช๏ธ Penne Pasta
โ–ช๏ธ Xlrg Shrimp
โ–ช๏ธ Asparagus
โ–ช๏ธ Green Peas
โ–ช๏ธ Grape Tomatoes
โ–ช๏ธ Carrots
โ–ช๏ธ Corn
โ–ช๏ธ Zucchini
โ–ช๏ธ Alfredo Sauce
โ–ช๏ธ Basil Pesto
โ–ช๏ธ Parmesan Cheese

โ–ช๏ธ Asiago Kale Salad Kit @yourtaylorfarms

It was okay – but I tried to get slick cooking the Asparagus, Zucchini, Corn and pasta in the Instant Pot – it was too long for the asparagus and zucchini so they were mushy, the corn was great and the pasta cooked well but I like a more al dentรฉ noodle so less time next time…. And just steam the veg like I usually do…

I do think pasta in the IP would do well for me with a little less time and my Chef IQ gave me a great idea… Using the steamer basket sitting on the bottom prevents a burn notice and is self straining (see daily video) – very cool!
