A little sweet, a little sour, a little spicy, a little cool and a little crunchy. They say that the Asian cuisines are the most complex and this recipe combines Asian complexity with a lazy man's simplicity. Here's your meat and salad deliciously combined in one easy to make dish!
Asian-influenced preparation of adzuki beans and squash.
An Asian egg noodle soup with a base of ginger, garlic, and beef (or chicken) stock. flavored with fresh basil, and green onions. Start off by preparing all the ingredients; its easier to concentrate on a soup if you have taken the time to prepare all the ingredients first.

Something I whipped up one night for the in-laws. It was inspired by, and based loosely, on several other recipes I have seen. Fairly basic but terrifically tasty!
Let's face it. Summer is a time for fun, and some parents don't want to stay in a hot house all day and cook, while some just don't have the time or energy. This is the kind of meal that you just pop in the slow cooker and do whatever you and your family have to do for 6-8 hours. Then just put it in some lettuce wraps and eat! It's easy, fuss-free, and I think it tastes great.
This is a sure winner at any Asian feast. By baking them, they come out and stay crispy. I have found that deep fried spring rolls have to be eaten immediately to preserve their crispiness. This is also healthier. A must try!
This ginger dipping sauce is wonderful with either grilled, steamed or fried fish. My Cambodian friend's dad used to make this every time he served fish.
My Grandma used to make this for us all the time because it's quick and easy, and cheap. Chocolate rice is a Guamanian dessert almost like sweet chocolate porridge.

This dressing / sauce is versatile and is great used as an asian salad dressing, topping for sushi/sashimi (most white fish or fatty fishes), and also can bring a twist to some cooked dishes as well. This sauce also works great as a steak marinade!
No island BBQ would be complete without finadeni. This all-purpose sauce is used to flavor rice, soups, dipping and is excellent for marinating chicken, beef and pork. If you like, I have seen other people substitute the thinly sliced onions with chopped onions or chopped green onions.
This Filipino version of fruit salad, modified from Auntie Josie's recipe, infuses a condensed milk cream coating with a mixture of canned and exotic fruits.
Gailan is a great leafy green vegetable that makes for a great stir-fry. Made this for dinner and couldn't wait to have the leftovers the next day for lunch. Serve with rice or tossed with your favorite noodle. I'm not a vegetarian or anything, but like the value and ease of preparation of tofu in place of chicken. Also, if you cannot find gailan, just sub broccoli.
If you love ginger, this salad dressing is for you. The dressing is really easy to make. Just dump everything into a blender, blend it, and next thing you know, you are at your favorite Japanese restaurant.
Persimmon, radish and cucumber stud this tasty salad of salted napa cabbage, onion, and fresh ginger.
