Piccalilli Relish

Piccalilli Relish by Salad Foodie

The final harvest of green tomatoes I relegated to a batch of Piccalilli, a relish of East Indian origin. Just can't get enough of that lightly pungent and savory condiment....and it’s way easy to make using a food processor for most of the chopping tasks. Make a batch of this to give as holiday gifts, and to enjoy yourself through…

Chinese Vegetable Soup

Chinese Vegetable Soup by John Spottiswood

I love to throw this recipe together when I am in the mood for a healthy and spicy meal. Just about every time I go to an Asian grocery store I end up picking up the ingredients for this tasty soup. This is not from any book...just pieced together from the great bowls of soup I've had in hole-in-the-wall chinese restaurants in the…

Garlic Ginger Green Beans

Garlic Ginger Green Beans by John Spottiswood

These are an excellent, healthy side dish to any grilled meat. I highly recommend them with the Chinese BBQ chicken recipe below, but honestly these would go well with just about anything. Unfortunately these were tapped out long before our chicken, so make more than you think you need. They are great the next day too!

Savory Rice with Lentil Curry - Khichuri

Savory Rice with Lentil Curry - Khichuri by John Spottiswood

We made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious! This has everything I love about Indian food. The flavors are bold and vibrant but blend so well together, the warmth and texture are like comfort food, and the dish is quite healthy. If you like split pea or lentil soup, you should definitely give this a try some night instead.…

Japanese Spinach Salad, Ohitashi

Japanese Spinach Salad, Ohitashi by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious way to consume large quantities of one of the healthiest foods on the planet...spinach! I came to love this when I lived in Japan from 1991-1992, and make it frequently now because it is so easy, healthful and delicious. Serve this with any Asian dish, or any meat and potatoes. It's not particularly spicy, but…

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.

Sweet & Tangy Sauteed Coleslaw

Sweet & Tangy Sauteed Coleslaw by Nanette

This is a refreshing change from the mayonnaise based potato salad and Coleslaw that's devoured throughout the summer. Coleslaw with an Asian flare can't be beat for something just a tad different. Sprinkle the seame seeds after it's been cooked so the dish has a nutty, crunchy taste. If you'd like a similar recipe with a bit of…
