Mi Xao Chay Recipe (Vegetarian Soft Egg Noodle Stir Fry) Recipe

I love making noodle stir fry. It may seem a little complicated but if you're methodical, you'll be able to master this dish in no time. What makes this noodle dish special is the use of pineapple both as an ingredient and as a seasoning for the noodles themselves.

First, I prepared the green bean and tofu stir fry and set it aside. The next step is boiling the fresh egg noodles, then cooking the pineapple (trái  khóm in Vietnamese) in a thick sweet and sour sauce. Finally, all you need is to toss the noodles in the sauce and add the tofu and green beans.

Summer Salad with Spiced Lemon Coffee Vinaigrette Recipe

This delicious, summery salad makes good use of fresh, crisp ingredients. I also added red quinoa, avocado, fresh mozzarella cheese, fried tofu and chicken pieces to complete the nutritious salad. To put it over the top, I drizzled the salad with an incredible lemon and coffee-flavored vinaigrette.

I was inspired to make the dressing by our trip to Italy two years ago. While on our vacation, we had the opportunity to try spiced citrus coffee. It was absolutely terrific and fairly commonplace; similar flavor combinations can be seen in many coffee cakes and biscotti cookies. I was able to recreate the flavors found in these Italian dishes using Boyajian coffee vinegar and pure lemon oil. I also added extra lemon zest to brighten the vinaigrette.

The vinaigrette itself would also make an excellent marinade for chicken, steaks or root vegetables.

Tofu with Peanut Miso Sauce Recipe

Tofu with Peanut Miso Sauce

By itself, tofu can be very bland; the best remedy is a flavorful sauce paired with a load of vegetables. In this recipe I used leftover chicken, silken tofu, broccoli, red bell peppers, beech and button mushrooms, Japanese eggplant and onions. I added the chicken pieces at the last minute after reserving a portion for the vegetarians in my house.

When paired with a thick, bold, rich peanut miso sauce and served on a bed of steamed jasmine rice, you’ll have a one-dish meal sure to satisfy your family.

Asparagus and Zucchini Tofu Recipe Recipe

This tofu stir fry dish is a staple in our home and I make it at least one a month. It's quick to prepare, flavorful and packed with fresh green vegetables. 

The preparation is always more or less the same. In this version, pan-seared tofu pieces (or leftover cooked chicken breasts) are tossed with previously cooked zucchini and baby asparagus in maple syrup, chipotle garlic sauce and soy sauce. At the end, I added onions wedges and turned the heat off; the residual heat in the dish finished cooking the onions while keeping them juicy, sweet and crunchy.

Mixed-Bean Soup Recipe Recipe

Mixed-Bean Soup Recipe

04.25.13 by Jackie

This is probably the last soup I'm making this season as we're slowly experiencing warmer temperatures. I prepared the soup with 10 varieties of beans. Four-pound mixed bean packages are readily available at my local Korean market. In this particular one, only seven dried beans were mixed in it, namely soybeans, chickpeas, kidney beans, black beans, peas, black eyed peas and lima beans. I also added white cannellini beans, green beans and edamame beans to complete the nourishing soup.

In addition to the soup, I included corn kernels for extra sweetness and deep-fried tofu cubes for texture. Everyone in my home enjoyed it because the starchy vegetables are quite filling and almost make you forget about meat!
