In the warmer months, I like to swap grain dishes for rice noodle bowls that I can enjoy cold or at room temperature. With the right mix of toppings and flavors, rice noodles are satisfying and healthy. This recipe brings the flavors of sesame chicken with a sweet and savory mix of tamari, sesame oil, brown sugar, and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Great option to bring your lunch to work, or even for a make-ahead dinner. Sub beef, pork, or shrimp for the chicken, if you like!
This vegetarian tom yum soup recipe is light, flavourful, spicy and hearty all at the same time. A mix of meaty Asian mushrooms are poached in a fragrant broth of lemongrass and lime leaves and soured with lime juice. A spoonful of chili paste is stirred in at the end for a bit of heat to warm you up and you’ve got a nourishing, steaming bowl of soup that’s great for chilly weather.
