Asian Food, Food, Recipe Roundup

Asian Inspired Cooking

I should tell you that I am a picky eater. I have specific and high expectations and not many foods meet those strenuous requirements. When they do, I save them and will cook them again and again. I decided to share with you today my favorite Asian inspired recipes, none of these are my own, those will be coming shortly. These are recipes that I love and I hope you do too.


Dragon Noodles by Budget Bytes


I am not a spicy food person, and the first time I tried these I thought wow, I have made a mistake, but the next week I was craving them and I have made them time and time again since. I use this as one of my backup meals, because we usually have all the ingredients on hand and if we run out of meals for the week we can always whip this up. I love how quick and easy it is. I have made this for friends and potlucks as well as for my husband and I and they have been well received and loved.


Mapo Tofu by Appetite for China

Now I am going to be honest with you, I have never eaten this dish in a restaurant. I have not been to China and eaten it there, but I can tell you that this is amazing! If I were to describe it I would say it tastes like a the inside of a dumpling. I have made this plain and put it over ramen. I found this to be a dish I love and rave about to everyone.


Peanut Noodles with Chicken by Foodiecrush


I made these to take along somewhere and I love that cold noodle salads last for a while and are easy.  Once prepped, it can be eaten anytime. I would suggest though that you make extra peanut sauce because it makes a huge difference.


And last but certainly not least.


Lighter Beef and Broccoli by Iowa Girl Eats


My husband and I devoured these and there were barely any leftovers. I love the taste and the texture of this dish. (You might note the broccoli stems as well as the florets, for if you hadn’t picked up by now, I am thrifty [aka cheap])

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do. Feel free to share any suggestions for me to try or anything you enjoy too. Spread the food love.
