We have been on 4HB diet for a week and we saw significant results (We gained a bit weight back after the binge day though.) I created a menu plan for week 2 and one of the dishes is going to be a challenge. 4HB requires to have beans with every meal but it does not say beans needs to be eaten as “Bean form”. So I decided to use Garbanzo Bean Flour to make Okonomiyaki!
4HBダイエットを始めて1週間経過。 1週間で、結構満足できる結果だったので、このダイエット続けることに！ （ご褒美の日の後に、ちょっと体重増えちゃいましたが・・・） さてさて、2週間目の4HBダイエットメニューを考える中、あることに気づき、今週のメニューのひとつに、ちょっとチャレンジ的な品を足してみました！ 4HBは、毎食、必ず豆を食べること勧めているのですが、「豆を豆の形で食べろ」とはどこにも書いていないので、ヒヨコマメの粉を使って、お好み焼きを作ってみることに！ これぞ、お好み焼きチャレンジ！
I shredded about 2 cups of Cabbage and put them in a bowl. I added 1/4 lb thin sliced Pork and 10 small Shrimps in the same bowl. Next, put 6 tablespoon full of Garbanzo Bean Flour and 2 eggs to the bowl. Mixed them together until it became Okonomiyaki batter looking. I think I put about 1 teaspoon of salt to taste.
Time to cook the Okonomiyaki! Put about 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the skillet with medium heat. When the oil is ready, put about 2 tablespoon full of Okonomiyaki batter to the skillet and cook until both sides are done.
それでは、鉄板出すのが面倒くさかったので、フライパンでミニサイズのお好み焼き作り！ カノーラオイルを熱し、大匙2杯ぐらいの量のお好み焼きの種を、フライパンで焼いていきます。 もちろん、両面、きっちり焼きました。
We had to think about Okonomi sauce. Okonomi sauce is usually made with TONS of SUGAR and FRUITS which are totally non-approved food for this 4HB Diet. So we decided to dip Okonomiyaki in Balsamic Vinegar, Japanese Mayo (Only 1 tablespoon for both of us) and Sriracha！
So the tastes? They were good. They were better than what we expected. Mr. Z and I agreed that Okonomiyaki Challenge was success and we enjoyed them a lot. This dish was followed 4HB diet meal plan strictly but because it was Okonomiyaki, we both felt we were cheating the diet. 😉 I think I will make this dish again!
