Eating Jackfruit seeds...

I guess it isn't as common here as it is in Thai or Indian food, to include jackfruit seeds in some dishes...
I prefer eating the boiled seeds on its own.

Last week we had one ripe jackfruit from our is not so big like what I usually see for sale. I wasn't able to tell our helper to save the seeds, so she threw it away :(

Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup

Sounds like an exotic dish...this is really simple to make. Its 2 hrs before lunch, and I'm quite hungry, so I thought a chunky soup would be just right...
I had leftover steamed black rice, which I didn't really like as substitute for white rice for lunch or dinner, since it was quite dense and heavy on the stomach. So its a good idea to cook it again in a soup. I saw a recipe before using wild rice in a mushroom soup...this is what I came up with.
The fresh shitake mushroom is sometimes expensive, but this time I bought it at S&R, it really doesn't cost much per piece. I only used one big shitake, since I'm making only 1 serving of soup.
I also love spinach and its cheap this time of the year. One pack goes a long way...
