## Day 2-3, recipes and German calculations

First recipe is easy: on the ”Japanese” tofu I had scallion, sesame oil and soy. On the ”Chinese” I simply had the mapo tofu sauce from the Asian store. Taste: 3. Speed: 5

The pancakes are from this book that only exists in Swedish. But the recipe is: mix 4 dl of wheat flour, 3 cl of corn starch and a bit of salt. Whip in 7 dl of oat milk. Whip in 5 cl of canola oil. Fry, in oil. It gets sooo… crispy.

The tofu sauce is inspired by this recipe in Swedish, but I cut and fried scallion, tofu, common mushrooms, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, sambal oelek and coriander.

I’d give 4 for the taste. The oat pancakes are actually a 5, but the sauce wasn’t perfect. I’d give 1 for speed. Frying pancakes is for when you really, really need pancakes, and not to just get full 🙂

#### German calculations

I used this table:

It’s already calculated per person, making it easier 😉 Germany is the most populous country of the European Union, so what they do matters a lot, for our planet (and their own river cities). Nuclear has been going down since 2004, but I’ve used the numbers from 2009 (before Fukushima) and 0, as it’s their plan to have them all closed down in 2022. The pollution figures I use are the median values from here, so 820 g/kWh for coal, and 12 g for nuclear, so the difference being 808 g. 808 grams times 1644 kWh gives us 1,3 tons of CO2eq per person and year, and I rounded that down to 1 ton, which is the equivalent in pollution to 250 hamburgers per year, or equivalent to 500 kilos of tofu per year.

How much deaths does these roughly 100 million tons of CO2eq give us? That’s too hard to answer. But if they were taxed according to the price for capturing CO2 from the air and burying it, it’s worth 50 billion euros. We could have given every Kenyan 2,5 euros per day, all year, which would have eliminated (absolute) poverty from Kenya. Just as an idea as how much money they waste by closing their nuclear.

#### Brain power calculation

Brain power = ((C / H) * 100 + P) / 2

Where C is ”correct answers”, H is ”historically most correct answers” and P is ”percentage correct answers”. H might change in the future – if I make 10 correct answers on day 4, then the results for day 1-3 will get lower. P is the percentage of correct answers.

The formula might look complicated, but it’s just a way to make the two measurements into one measurement, fit for a graph like the one above.

## Day 1, the recipe.

It’s from here: https://www.koket.se/vegetarisk-mapo-tofu

It’s in Swedish. If you need a translation to English, let me know. (I’m too lazy to do it in vain.)

My grade is 4 Haralds out of 5. And that’s the initial taste. It didn’t taste so well in the end, as I had to eat a kilo of tofu :p

And this is the only time I’m making that last comment. From now on, all comments will be on initial taste, and not on the taste after eating a kilo of tofu 😉

As for the speed, I’d give it a 4 out of 5 as well, where 5 is super fast, and 1 is the slowest. So 4-4! A good recipe.
