Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). 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,…

This is one of those dishes I like to just whip up for dinner. It's kind of like a Mexican stir fry. You can add meat if you want to. I usually useingredients I have on hand. Serve with black beans for a healthy, high protein meal.

Squash In A Spice Paste Done Pronto!

Squash In A Spice Paste Done Pronto! by kathy gori

This has been one hell of a week, one of those 7 day stretches that includes everything on lifes' smorgey...except dental. Of course the week's not over yet. It's been a week of some nerves, some loss, some traveling, some stress and the general sense of just being unable to catch up. That said, I can't wait for Monday to start the…

Curried Chickpeas, Onions, and Kale in Tomato Sauce

Curried Chickpeas, Onions, and Kale in Tomato Sauce by Katherine Martin

This recipe should be called "I bought a whole bunch of kale for a recipe and then forgot the recipe I needed it for, and now I need to use it asap." But I have been making variations of this recipe for the past two years, and because I have yet to meticulously measure everything, it is different everytime. Even in this attempt to…

Stir-fried curry green beans with black eyed peas

Stir-fried curry green beans with black eyed peas by John Spottiswood

I love it when I stumble on a recipe that puts together ingredients I love, but wouldn't have thought of combining, and then far exceeds my expectations. This recipe, which I adapted from a new book we bought called Tangy, Tart, Hot & Sweet by Padma Lakshimi, really shines. She encourages the use of chinese long beans instead of…

Mushroom Medley and Baby Bok Choy w/ Black Bean Sauce and Soba Noodles by Gena

If you love mushrooms as much as I do, this one is for you. It is a fairly light and healthy vegetarian stir-fry dish, which can easily be made vegan by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I used the veggie broth and it turned out great.…

It is relatively low in carbs as is and high in protein and fiber. It is also moderately low in fat and you can cut the fat even further by…

Fried Rice with Tempeh

Fried Rice with Tempeh by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious and healthy way to have fried rice. The tempeh provides a salty nuttiness similar to adding bacon, but with healthy goodness too. We tend to throw in whatever we have on hand, and the recipe below sort of demonstrates that. Using this method and sauce, you can add just about anything to the fried rice and it…

Eggplant Donburi

Eggplant Donburi by Nancy Miyasaki

As a Japanese american, I have a soft spot for donburi (Japanese term for just about anything served over rice). Our kids love it too. We mix up a warm bowl of brown and white rice and cover it with something warm, salty, sweet, and occasionally a bit spicy. This is rib sticking good, and best served in fall, winter or the early…

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…
