It has been years since I’ve shared the post on “Essential Thai sauces” to fill your pantry, and thanks to the suggestion from numerous readers, I’ve put together the “Essential Chinese Sauces” used in Chinese cooking.
When it comes to Chinese cuisine, the balance of sweet, sour, savory and spicy flavors is important if you want your food to taste authentic. Having the right seasoning will make your dishes shine.
Blueberries are not only great on pancakes, toast and in muffins, you could also use them to spice up savory dishes. Blueberries, with their sweet yet discreet flavor is perfect to mix in salads or as a sauce. The sweet and salty combination will definitely liven up your meals.
We are huge fans of homemade salsa but instead of using fresh tomatoes (Which is usually the default choice), I’ve decided to make it with fresh blueberries! This simple yet delicious homemade blueberry salsa makes a perfect topping for your favorite tacos, nachos and of course this crispy potato patty! Store leftover salsa in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
My love for blueberries has definitely shined throughout this entire blog ever since I’ve started my Bear Naked Food journey. And today, I’m sharing with you another deeply comforting and delicious recipe – Easy Baked Blueberry Crumble. Delicious and versatile, you could serve it warm or cold. We simply love to pair it with a scoop (or two if we are in an indulging mood!) of vanilla ice-cream to make it a perfect dessert.
Even though I’ve never visited Levain Bakery in New York, there are enough videos online to prove they are arguably the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie in Manhattan. Search for “Levain Cookie” in YouTube or the internet and you’ll find tons of online tutorials on how to make these thick and chunky cookies. They are crisp on the outside and moist in the centre. They are SERIOUSLY delicious!
Looking for a dish that pleases both adults and children? Then this Easy Chinese Shrimp Cake recipe is for you. Shrimps or prawns are a lean source of protein and low in fat so it is pretty much a guilt-free food in my opinion. The ingredients used is widely available and you’ll probably have most of it in your pantry.
Mapo Tofu is a dish that needs no introduction to most food aficionados. This humble dish of minced pork and tofu originated from Sichuan province and the spicy, numbing sensation that hits your palate is the signature profile flavor you can’t miss.
Instead of using ground pork, I’ve chosen plant-based ground meat as the protein. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with plant-based meat and am quite pleased with the results.
Potatoes are so versatile there are so many ways to cook them. Recently, I’ve fallen for these Soy and Vinegar Crispy Potatoes. They are bold in flavor and simply delicious (if I may so say myself). I’ve always been a fan of salt and vinegar everything, so if you are like me, this recipe is for you.
As far as I could remember, mom has always taught us the importance of not wasting food. I recall she would store tons of chicken, pork and fish bones in the freezer. One of my all-time favorite snacks is this Crispy Fried Fish Bones. Frying has a knack for bringing out some of the best flavors.
This Thai Style Prawn with Glass Noodle is just one of the many items we would order from a Thai food menu. Honestly, there is nothing complicated to this dish. Apart from using fresh prawn, the combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce creates a flavorful umami-rich taste to the dish, while the prawn and cabbage amp up the natural sweetness. The bean vermicelli tends to soak up the flavor of the sauce, and that’s how it’s supposed to be.
