I love the clean flavor and polished texture of white rice. In Japanese, the word for food is the same as the one for rice. Without it, a meal is not a meal. The real genius of rice is revealed when you think about it in reverse. Add just about anything to a bowl of rice and you’ve got dinner. Don’t think of it as a throwaway fill-you-up starch. Properly cooked rice is a study in subtlety and texture, to be mixed and matched at will.
Chicken noodle soup is the ultimate comfort food. This Thai classic, featuring ginger, coconut milk and lime, is a quick and delicious twist on the classic.
I love tempura and prefer my tempura super crispy. I’ve found that the secret to mixing up a batter that fries up extra-crispy is club soda. Who knew?!
Skip the take-out and make your own spring rolls. They’re easy and delicious. If you would like to make these spring rolls vegetarian then just omit the shrimp.
Hands down Green Papaya Salad is one of my all time favorite salads. Green papayas can be hard to find, but most Asian markets should have them.
The combination of pork and cabbage is classic. Make sure to salt the cabbage and squeeze out the excess water so the dumplings don’t get soggy.
Super easy and super satisfying! Serve with bok choy & rice and you’ll have a delicious Asian meal.
Homemade is always better so ignore those powder soup packets on the grocery shelves and make your own. You’ll be amazed at how easy Miso Soup is to make and absolutely delicious.
If you’re celebrating the Lunar New Year (or even if you’re not) then make this Asian Beef Hot Pot. It’s not difficult to make and your family will enjoy a change of pace during these cold winter days.
You can find pandan leaf at your local Asian grocery. If you don’t live near a Asian grocery store or are unable to find pandan leaf then don’t worry about it. Just cook your Coconut rice without it.
