Sushi Nori Wraps

These wraps are chocked full of raw veggies and eliminate the empty calories regular sushi rolls contain by omitting the rice. My hubby and I both are huge sushi fans, and I wanted to make some this week for dinner, but I didn’t want to take all the extra time to cook rice, then season… Continue reading Sushi Nori Wraps

Sweet and Sour Tempeh

This recipe reminds me of trips to the mall we took as kids where we’d always get the greasy, fried, covered-in-sticky-sweet-sauce “Chinese food” the food court had to offer. It was one of my favorite foods and I had no idea it was so terribly unhealthy. Fried chicken basking in a sea of high fructose… Continue reading Sweet and Sour Tempeh

One of my favorite Thai appetizers is Tom Kha Vegetable, which is a blend of creamy coconut milk, lime juice and hints of lemongrass. I didn’t have any lemongrass when I made this, but if… Continue reading Tom Kha Vegetable Soup

Roasted Baby Bok Choy

When I don’t know what to do with a vegetable, my go-to cooking method is roasting. I normally steam baby bok choy, but it seems to get so soft and mushy that it’s no longer appetizing. Roasting it with the aromatic and tantalizing flavors of Chinese Five Spice powder was definitely a big hit. This… Continue reading Roasted Baby Bok Choy

Coconut Crusted Tofu with Mango Chutney

Sweet and savory are the best two words to describe this tasty treat. I’ve always been a fan of chutney with Indian food, but I thought it was go nicely on something else. Namely, these baked coconut tofu steaks. Nothing says “yum” like toasted coconut! The mango chutney can be made as spicy or as… Continue reading Coconut Crusted Tofu with Mango Chutney
