Instead of an immersion blender stick, I recommend a counter blender. A better multi-tasker. With a counter top blender, you can create crushed ice (for drinks) and create delicious smoothies. My fave blender drink? Ice, plain soy milk, chocolate syrup (or choc. soy milk) and a banana. MmmmMMmm a healthy cold treat. :)
I'll have to pass this recipe on to my sister, it looks like it's easy to make and store.

We get them at the market here for about 20 baht a kg...and that is a lot on Bok Choi.

Terri, your dish looks yummy! If it's not chicken, what exactly is it? :D
What is the texture of it feel like? Spongy? Like Salisbury steak in a frozen dinner? And since you've eaten chicken within the last two years, does it taste even close??
Texture-wise, it was VERY close to that of chicken...even the stringy bits like in a regular breast. It was a little spongy, but not as much as the boca burgers and other textured vegetable proteins I've had. I was really surprised. I think eating it over the grainy textured rice may have helped that along, although Laurie ate one by itself with a sweet potato as her side dish and she said "please buy more of these chicken breasts". LOL!
Taste was, well...I LOOoooOOOve chicken, so I can't say it would have fooled me on the taste-o-meter. But it had a great taste with no heartburn or typical TVP after-effects. LOL! The sauce was pretty good, too. I have some "plain" ones in the fridge for another day, so when I eat one naked plain, I'll let you know more. :)
The tricky thing is that the only thing I wish I could eat with eggs is french toast, omelets, and flan. It's not the scrambled eggs or over hard type that I miss so much. If you find a substitute for those, let me know! :D
Do you like bananas? coconut?
I like bananas and enjoy coconut, but don't Lurve it. :)

I'm definitely cooking a lot, but the menus are low fat and low cholesterol and not tasting or looking very good.:(
We're meeting with a dietician this week and hoping she'll be able to help us with more appetizing meals. :)
Stayed turned, just maybe we'll be eating more delicious meals. I feel just Iike I did my first year of marriage in the kitchen. I wasn't a very good cook then. :(
