Garlic Fried Rice

Garlic Fried Rice

Garlic Fried Rice! This is a great dish to serve any time. It’s simple, quick to make and of course goes great with other Cantonese dishes, such as stir fry’s or have like I do with my Chinese Sticky Sweet Chicken Wings. I love to eat this rice! You can use left over rice or make from fresh, whichever is convenient for you.

Sesame Prawn Toasts

Sesame Prawn Shrimp Toasts

Sesame Prawn Shrimp Toasts

This is one of my favourite sides! I often have these Sesame Prawn Toasts with a sweet chili dipping sauce or as an accompaniement to my Chinese Chicken & Corn (Egg Drop) Soup. You can also make these using chicken if you prefer, or even make both prawn and chicken for variety. Always a hit at buffets and parties too so be sure to make LOTS!

Chinese Fried Noodles – Lovefoodies hanging out! Tease your taste buds!

Chinese Fried Noodles

There are many types of noodles available in the shops, ranging from egg noodles (yellow) to rice noodles (white). They also come in different shapes and thicknesses, and as you would expect, recipes will differ according to the type of noodle, as well as the country / region where it is most popular.

This recipe I am sharing is using rice noodles. They are my favourite.

I find rice noodles not too heavy and filling, and extremely easy and quick to prepare. It’s such a versatile ingredient, often fried or eaten in a broth.

You can choose your favourite meat, or no meat at all. Also, you can swap any of the vegetables for your favourite ones, or whatever you may have in your fridge.

The main thing is to achieve a Chinese flavour so where possible, try to use the marinade ingredients.

Choose 1 handful amount of 3 of your favourite vegetables, such as peppers, beansprouts, broccoli, courguettes / zucchini, mushrooms. To that you can add what ever meat you wish. Just remember to slice the meat thinly

The trick with making any Chinese food and it’s guaranteed success is to prepare everything before hand. You need to get all your ingredients together, chopped, diced, sauces prepared, absolutely everything that belongs in a recipe must be at hand when you fire your wok up to inferno temperatures!

Flavour-dance Dumplings – Lovefoodies hanging out! Tease your taste buds!

Flavour Dancing Dumplings

Flavour Dancing Dumplings

Why do I call this Flavour dance dumplings you may ask. The answer is simple! I first came across these dumplings when a lovely lady from Mumsfilibaba shared her Swedish dumpling recipe with us over on Facebook. Immediately, her recipe caught my eye and inspired me of all the possibilities I had in taking this simple popular Swedish potato dumpling to the next level.

I wanted to get a flavour explosion in my mouth when I first bit into the dumpling. So it got me thinking, and experimenting with her recipe, and after various trials of adding this spice and that spice, I’ve come up with this recipe, which is an adaptation of Mumsfilibaba’s (all credit to her who gave me the inspiration!) which manages to tease and tickle all your senses, from when you first set eyes on this little dumpling, through to your first bite and you get the crispy crunchy texture, then the soft potato, then the chew and here’s the thing….the fantastic explosion of flavours when your taste buds register the filling. That’s when the dancing begins, right on your tongue. It’s as though your whole mouth becomes an orchestra of flavours, all complimenting each other, and yet, all distinct in their own right. I haven’t had a dance like this in my mouth for a while. Often, our taste buds get used to the flavours we always seem to have, so once you get a new combination, together with the different texture levels, it really can be a concert of joy!

I’ve given you two different flavour fillings you can try out for yourself, and I really would encourage you to play around a little and add your own flavours, some combinations you will like, some you won’t. It’s all part of the fun when you can adapt and mix spices. keep doing it until you get that concert in your mouth! Trust me, you will be delighted when you take your first bite into one of your dumplings. I’ll put the link to Mumsfilibaba at the end of the recipe if any of you would like to take a look.

Come take a dance with me …..
