Hunan-style crispy chilli beef

 
If you like classic shredded beef, then you will love my Hunan-style crispy chilli beef with dried chillies and peanuts!  The dish is sweet, spicy and zesty and delicious served with shredded lettuce and cucumber.  Hunan, in the south central part of China, is famous for it’s spicy hot food and inspired this dish, which offers a bit of yin and yang. 
 
This recipe is taken from Exploring China: A culinary adventure.  Happy memories!
 
Have a great weekend, one and all.

Nutritious vegetarian Korean bibimbap quinoa

 
 
Are you after some more recipe inspiration? I love to cook my Nutritious vegetarian Korean bibimbap quinoa recipe - my healthy take on the Korean classic. Using my Lotus Wok, this dish is super quick to make.  By getting the Lotus Wok really hot, you can quickly fry off the tofu until golden brown, followed by your carrot stripes, keeping in all their nutrients and natural crunch. 

A delicious Lotus wok-fried egg on top delivers some high more high quality protein and omega-3 fats. I can’t believe there will be much left over but you can always turn it into a healthy packed lunch the next day. Instead of the fried eggs, maybe use hard boiled – much easier to transport!
 
The link to the recipe is above, or you can find it in my cookbook Eat Clean: Wok Yourself to Health.
 
Enjoy!

Happy St George's Day

Crispy Halibut
 
Happy St Georges Day for tomorrow!
 
If you're celebrating then I have a great recipe for you - an Asian take on Classic Fish & Chips.  The English love the traditional fish and chip takeaway but you know how I love to give the classics an Asian twist!  How about trying my Japanese-style crispy halibut with lemon sauce cooked in my Lotus Wok.  If you like ordering lemon chicken from your local takeaway, then you will like this dish.  The Japanese panko breadcrumbs are flavoured with honey for extra crisp but you can also use breadcrumbs.  The full recipe is in my cookbook, Ching’s Fast Food.
 
Have a great weekend!

Organic chicken with garlic, lemon, herbs and rocket salad

 
Fancy a new idea for a light supper this evening? Look no further!  My Organic Chicken with garlic, lemon, herbs and rocket, cherry tomatoes and pecan salad is a low carb meal packed full of nutrients and lean protein.  My champion ingredient in this recipe is the pecan nuts.  Not only do these little gems add a tasty crunch and flavour to the dish but they are a great source of Vitamin E.  They are also packed full of goodies like magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc... the list goes on and on! 
 
For a vegan alternative, use meaty King trumpet mushrooms or smoked firm tofu. 
 
Enjoy!

Weekend treat time...!

Eggs
 
Another Friday, another delicious recipe for the weekend!  Fancy a breakfast treat tomorrow morning? Try my Crispy Fried Breakfast Eggs. This is crispy fried eggs - Chinese style! I love my eggs sunny side up, cooked in my Lotus Wok, with a crispy base and dressing it with hot chilli sauce, oyster sauce, light soy and fresh herbs. Dee-lish!  You can serve the eggs with wholemeal baton piece of toast to break into the egg yolks and to mop up the Chinese seasonings.
 
Have a great weekend!
