This time around, I skipped the step of making gyoza altogether and simply made the meat filling, forming it into mini patties for gyoza sliders. When dressed with sauteed mushrooms and red onions, wasabi, pickled ginger and gyoza dipping sauce, these fusion burgers are a unique twist on the classic American burger and they make a tasty appetizer or main course.
Jiaozi (Chinese dumplings) is a traditional Chinese dish that is popular during the Chinese New Year celebration. The pronunciation of this Chinese pot-sticker resembles the sound of a word for money so the tradition is to serve them during the New Year festivities as a promise of wealth and luck in the coming year.
Making sushi at home is easier than you think and you can use your imagination, disguising many healthy foods within each roll. Sushi is also very kid-friendly because your kids can help make different rolls, with or without seafood, according to each person's tastes.
Gingerbread cookies are often made for Christmas but when made in different shapes they can be great all winter. Your kids can help roll out and decorate the cookies with red hots, sprinkles and icing.
My family loves our lighter chicken tikka masala sauce so much that we decided to make the Indian curry dish with fish instead of chicken. I knew it was a successful meal when my son devoured the fish just as quickly as he does the chicken.
These kale wraps are one of the most interesting (and good!) things I've had and they are definitely a conversation piece for a party. As you eat the kale wrap, you get a burst of each of the flavors: ginger, lime, toasted coconut, peanuts, red onion and tamarind sauce. I didn't even notice that I was eating kale.
This gingerbread can come in the form of cupcakes, mini cupcakes, or a 9x13 loaf. It is yummy plain but I love the addition of the cream cheese frosting.
Ice cream is a refreshing combo with the zing of the ginger in the cookies. Use the ice cream of your choice.
These gingersnaps are great served alone or with vanilla ice cream. They also make incredible ice cream sandwiches.
Creating a teppanyaki-style meal at home is easier than you think. Our home-cooked version is full of the flavors that we love but it is much lighter and healthier than the restaurant versions.
