When most people think of cauliflower, they probably don’t get excited.  It’s just another vegetable with a bland flavor…blah blah blah…but it’s so much more!  It’s packed with fiber and B-vitamins, is incredibly versatile, and is one of my favorite vegetables to create meals with. You can create a full meal with one head of cauliflower.  Roast it, put it in soup, make pizza crust or rice, etc.  I however, like to make Chinese inspired dishes with cauliflower.  We did “Chinese Food Week” at our house and created some amazing meals!  You can’t tell the difference in the substitution of vegetable for meat, and the flavors were out of this world. These make great Meatless Monday meals, are all vegetarian, and are also vegan. We made the following dishes.  Recipes and instructions for each are below. Cashew Cauliflower Kung Pao Cauliflower Orange Glazed Cauliflower Sticky Sesame Cauliflower Sweet & Sour … Continue reading

Orange Chicken is sure to be a hit at your dinner table.  The tender chicken is fried crisp and coated in a thick orange sauce.  There is no lack of flavor in this sweet and tangy dish.  It’s one of my favorite Asian dishes and will make you forget about takeout. The recipe can be found here. Start by cubing the chicken into small pieces.  Then add the chicken to the batter and toss to coat.  Let the chicken sit in the batter for about 10 minutes, then toss again. Heat about 2 cups of peanut oil in a wok or skillet.  I prefer to use a wok because it’s easier to stir and contains a lot of oil splatter, but you will get very similar results with a skillet.  Add the chicken and fry until crispy, making sure the chicken is also cooked through.  Remove the chicken to drain while you make the sauce, keeping the chicken … Continue reading

What are potstickers?  My answer in one word: delicious. Potstickers are an Asian dumpling typically filled with meat and veggies, pan fried, and steamed to perfection.  They are crispy on the bottom, soft on the top, and worth the effort.  I’d like to share my favorite recipe for Chicken Potstickers with you. The recipe can be found here. Start by gathering all the ingredients you need to make the chicken “filling”.  Combine the chicken, scallions, bell pepper, egg, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a mixing bowl.  If you don’t mind getting your hand dirty, combine the ingredients by hand.  This really helps to blend everything together. It’s easiest to do all your prep work ahead of time.  Place 2 baking sheets on the counter.  Dampen paper towels and cover the bottom of one pan.  Dampen more paper towels to lay on top of the potstickers.  The potstickers will sit between the damp paper towels … Continue reading
