Broccoli Mushroom Chicken Fried Rice

Broccoli Mushroom Chicken Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Chinese #Recipe

Adapted from Steamy Kitchen Traditional chicken fried rice becomes a delightful meal with perfectly moist and tender chicken, crisp tender broccoli and carrots, perfectly cooked bits of egg and sauteed mushrooms. The chicken in this dish is marinated, then cooked to perfection so it is tender and moist, but not rubbery (like you know chicken can […]


Chinese Hot & Sour Soup

Chinese Hot & Sour Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Soup #Recipe

The classic hot and sour soup that is so popular at Chinese restaurants is a quick, easy soup to make at home! It tastes so good, I had two bowls of it before I could stop myself. I have a friend at work whose family used to run a popular Chinese restaurant here in town. Honestly, […]


Kung Pao Cauliflower

Kung Pao Cauliflower | Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Chinese #cauliflower #recipe

Inspired by Bon Appetit I freaking love everything Kung Pao … so when I stumbled across this fabulous recipe for Kung Pao brussel sprouts, I knew I wanted to try it. But as I was thinking it over, I thought … hmmm, wouldn’t cauliflower be better with the intense Kung Pao sauce than Brussel Sprouts? […]


Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice

Bacon Mushroom Zucchini Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #bacon #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Bacon-y goodness comes to fried rice, with hearty mushrooms and zucchini, carrots and red onion, and, of course, copious amounts of scrambled eggs. It’s an irresistable combination to anyone who loves fried rice. (Do you know anyone who doesn’t love fried rice? I don’t think I do …) The idea of bacon fried rice came to […]


Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls

Asian Broccoli Carrot Rice Balls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #vegetarian #rice #recipe

I made these fun little rice balls for our Wine & Design event, to serve alongside my Asian Ginger Meatballs. It was one of those things I pondered and pondered and just couldn’t decide what to serve with the meatballs, and then, one morning shortly before the event, I woke up with the answer. Rice […]


Homemade Hoisin Sauce

Homemade Hoisin Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Asian #Hoisin #sauce #recipe

Hoisin sauce is a thick, pungent sauce commonly used in Chinese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fries, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly coloured in appearance and both sweet and salty in taste. If you find yourself needing Hoisin sauce for a recipe, but have none on hand, this […]


Asian Sweet & Sour Sauce

Asian Sweet & Sour Sauce ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Chinese #homemade #Sweet&Sour #sauce #recipe

Adapted from Chow.com My daughter and I were discussing making egg rolls on the way home one evening. She was on board with that idea right away because we share a mutual fascination with egg rolls. Then I realized that we don’t have any of that bright red sweet & sour sauce you get at the Chinese restaurants […]


Shrimp, Pork & Chicken Egg Rolls

Shrimp, Chicken & Pork Egg Rolls ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Eggroll #Recipe

So there’s this thing that happens in my house every year around St. Patrick’s Day and it has to do with cabbage. I love corned beef and cabbage and my kids love corned beef, but they aren’t so crazy about cabbage. I love cabbage, but I have a hard time eating a whole head of […]


Cilantro Shrimp Fried Rice

Cilantro Shrimp Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #healthy #fusion #dinner #recipe

I was reminiscing about that fabulous Cilantro Lime Rice I made a while ago, and also thinking how good that would be with shrimp, and then thought “Hey, I could just do the whole fried rice thing and add some eggs and peas and it would be a whole meal all in one bowl” … and […]


Kid Fried Rice

Kid Fried Rice ~ an easy, quick way to introduce your kids to Chinese food ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #kid-friendly #recipe

This is a dish I have been making my kids for many, many years, since they were little. I think I first made it to introduce them to Chinese food and it worked like a charm. When they were younger,  I used to make this recipe for the kids, take their portion out of the […]


Mushroom Bok Choy Breakfast Stirfry

Mushroom Bok Choy Breakfast Stirfry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #breakfast #recipe

One morning I was heading home and I was craving veggies and protein. I considered a Chinese stirfry, but wanted something breakfast-like … so I DID make a stirfry and then I put an egg on top. I made myself a piece of toast to sop up the egg and the stir fry juices and […]


Asian Chicken, Shrimp & Kale Egg Rolls

Asian Chicken, Shrimp & Kale Egg Rolls

My daughter and I both have a huge affinity for egg rolls. And I’ve noticed something extra-magical about egg rolls: I can put just about any vegetable in an egg roll and she will eat it. Like vegies she won’t normally eat, such as kale … provided the end result still tastes like an egg […]


Asian Dragon Party Mix

Asian Spiced Party Mix

Not too long ago, I ordered a bunch of fun seasoning mixes from Mystic Blue Spice Company. They all smell so good! Yesterday I needed to make some party mix to sell for my daughter’s dance fundraiser and thought an Asian-spiced mix would be fun to try with their Asian Dragon seasoning. It turned out […]


Chinese Chicken Tangerine Salad

Chinese Tangerine Chicken Salad

An Oriental-inspired salad-scape. Because I was suddenly hungry and my son was making chicken nuggets and there were tangerines sitting in front of me and greens and a beautiful red bell pepper in the fridge. Not to mention a bottle of Oriental vinaigrette already made. This is kind of a melange of all the oriental salads […]
