Braised Collard Greens

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Wow, these are the best greens I have ever had, and I am southern-bred so that says something. I mixed a half a cup of these greens and a bit of country sausage with my grits for breakfast this morning. Dee-lish!

Spring Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This is probably my favorite asparagus dish ever, and I'm something of an asparagus aficionado. It's a perfect side dish for any southeast Asian-style dinner: delicious, quick, and easy. If you leave the spears intact (while trimming off the woody parts of course), it makes for an elegant presentation as well. I've served this several times with the Pork, Apple, and Ginger Stir-fry from this site.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I have made this several times now, and it's better than the restaurant version. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the potatoes and carrots MUST be at least partially boiled beforehand for this recipe to work. Also, it's easy to burn; you need to use really low heat or stir (i.e. flip) the mixture constantly. I prefer using coconut milk--the whole can--to cream. Also I like to add a bit of garam marsala and turmeric.

Pork, Apple, and Ginger Stir-Fry with Hoisin Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
I did a pared down, lighter-on-the-calories version of this and it was spectacular. I used 1 tbsp of olive oil supplemented with olive oil cooking spray rather than the peanut and sesame oils. I left out the cornstarch and just cooked the pork in the olive oil. I didn't have broccoli, so I used a green pepper, a red pepper, and an onion, all sliced. Oh, and I had 1.5 pounds of pork tenderloin, so I used it all. I left the sauce unchanged (except used splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar); it is delicious as written. My husband loved it even though he doesn't normally like sweet foods, and our three male guests raved about it. I served it with a basic fried rice (3 cups cooked white rice, 1 egg, 3 tablespoons each of soy sauce and rice vinegar, all fried up together with olive oil).

Vegan Fajitas

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
This is so great! After reading the reviews, I substituted lemon juice for the vinegar, reduced it and the olive oil to 2 tbsp, and added 1/2 tsp of red pepper and cinnamon. These were so fantastic, my husband ate SIX of them in the same sitting.

Bananas Foster Chimichangas

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This is an awesome way to enjoy bananas foster, especially for people like me who don't like ice cream and need some other texture to go with it. I sprinkled mine with cinnamon sugar while still hot from the frying pan. The leftover ones, if you have any, are still good the next day, even with microwaving!
