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…

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…

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!

Crunchy Long Beans With Sesame Seeds

Crunchy Long Beans With Sesame Seeds by Blackswan

This is just a simple vegetable dish I'd discovered during my last Shopping & Dining Trip in Bangkok. I was spell-bound the minute I took a bite into this dish at a Thai-Chinese Restaurant near Conrad Bangkok. Interestingly, it's spicy, very spicy & terribly salty. They've added peppercorns, dried chilli & something I've never…

The Raw And The Uncooked, A Meatless Monday Special

The Raw And The Uncooked, A Meatless Monday Special by kathy gori

I'm loving this whole meatless Monday business. It's great to take a break from the same old same old. One of my food blogger friends Jeroxie at Addictive and Consuming, had a post up last night where she was describing some simply divine potato and pea samosas made with filo dough. I had no business reading it at that hour as I was…
