Hot and Sour Soup

Every time I go to a Chinese Restaurant, I order their hot and sour soup. There is something about the spicy and sour flavors along with the warm broth that makes me want it over and over again. I have played around with many versions of hot and sour soup, to try to get the flavors right without requiring exotic hard to find ingredients and hours of work, and right now, this is the one I am making most. Feel free to add additional ingredients that you love in your hot and sour soup!

Kale, Coconut and Tofu Salad

This is a true superfood salad – the good oils of coconut, tofu for protein, brown rice for some body and, of course, kale. This simple but flavorful dressing if olive oil, sesame oil and soy sauce brings the dish together for a healthy and flavorful dinner salad. Serve it right away to take advantage of the great crunch of the roasted kale and coconut. (Adapted from Food and Wine Magazine)

Shroomami Salad

This dinner salad is packed with superfoods, beautiful colors and bold Asian flavors. While it’s not exactly a “one-dish wonder,” it is a salad and meal in one dish. Each time I make this, people ask me to pass on the recipe, so here it is! Based on a salad from Sweetgreen restaurant, this one brings together your veggies, starch and protein in one bite, each with its own special taste. Roasted marinated tofu and mushrooms are placed alongside chewy bright green kale and wild rice, and topped with beets, spiced sunflower seeds and a miso dressing that adds a deep salty Asian flair. Bring the leftovers to work with you for lunch - unlike lettuce, kale does not wilt!
