Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Joanne Weir

This is one of those dishes that I have to order every single time I go to Chinatown and see them on the menu. I love the crunch of the lettuce, the saltiness of the soy sauce, and the sweetness of the oyster sauce. You can substitute turkey, pork or squab with equally delicious results.

This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

XINJIANG LAMB MINI PITA POCKETS

XINJIANG LAMB MINI PITA POCKETS by Linda Tay Esposito

On the Silk Road path, the Uyghur cuisine in north western China uses a lot of spices and features goat and lamb dominantly. It's not what one would typically think of as Chinese foods. The Uyghurs also serve most of their dishes with a chewy flatbread that reminds me of bagel just holeless. This Xinjiang Lamb Mini Pita Pockets…

Vegetarian Asian Noodles

Vegetarian Asian Noodles by Keely Locke

You can add tofu, chicken, pork or shrimp to this dish, as well as any of your favorite veggies. You can substitute peanut butter or almond butter for the tahini, and if you want a spicier dish, you can add more chili-garlic sauce. For a more authentic dish, you can use Chinese egg noodles, udon, soba or dried or fresh ramen noodles.
