Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai

Spiralized Rainbow Pad Thai ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Thai #recipe

Inspired by Oh She Glows A rainbow of vegetables partner with shrimp, chicken, eggs and traditional Pad Thai flavors to create a beautiful, vibrant, veggie-licious yet high protein meal full of delightful Asian flavors. It’s amazing to eat hot right out of the pan, but also surprisingly good cold too, as a Pad Thai “salad”. I decided […]

This sushi roll was inspired by one of my favorite bagel toppings … smoked salmon and cream cheese. Sesame roasted asparagus and matchstick carrots on top of that add a nice flavor and crunch, a bit of green onion provides a little bite and then, a little bit of sriracha for that tingle on the tongue that is so […]

A beautiful homemade sushi roll with smoked salmon, avocado, cucumber, wasabi sauce, Yum Yum sauce and sesame seeds.

Spicy Asian Sriracha Green Beans

Spicy Asian Sriracha Green Beans ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #fiery #healthy #sidedish #recipe

Adapted from To Simply Inspire Do you ever get bored with vegetables?

Then I ran across […]


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 […]


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 […]


Classic Creamy Hummus – 2 Ways

Classic Creamy Hummus ~ 2 Ways Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #delicious #hummus #recipe #pickyourflavor

This post is for those of you who buy hummus at the store. I used to do that. I was convinced there was no way I could make hummus that tastes that good. But after a little trial and error, I discovered that I CAN make that hummus–for a fraction of what the pre-made stuff costs and […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish

Honey Sriracha Sesame Crusted Fish ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #fish #recipe

After I made the Honey Sriracha Cashews, well, I had a load of nicely toasted sesame seeds that didn’t stick to the cashews like I hoped they would and I just couldn’t toss them, thinking that a Honey Sriracha Sesame coated chicken or fish would be marvelous! And then my dad came along and gave me […]


Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews

Honey Sriracha Sesame Cashews ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #spiced #nut #recipe

Adapted slightly from Vitamin Sunshine It’s New Year’s Day. Wow. Another year has flown by us … another year of new beginnings ahead of us. Changes are afoot in my life. Not large, sweeping changes, just small ones, in the grand scheme of things, but as I get older, changes like a reorganization at work and […]


Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ghanoush

Fire Roasted Mixed Herb Baba Ganoush ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #garlic #tahini Middle Eastern #dip #recipe

The first time I “met” Baba Ganoush was at a party with my sister (who is, by the way, a fabulous and very adventurous cook). She introduces me to SOooooo many new things that I have never thought or heard of.  She was raving about this wonderful Middle Eastern dip that her friends were serving, […]

Spicy Asian Ginger Meatballs

Asian Ginger Party Meatballs ~ from Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #Ginger #Meatball #Recipe

Meatballs with some serious taste! Garlic and ginger come together in a sweet, slightly spicy Asian sauce to create a flavor sensation. I made these for my first blog-iversary party last summer and, although my guests really liked all the recipes, these meatballs were the biggest hit. My friends were asking me if the recipe […]


Honey Orange Sesame Chicken

Honey Orange Sesame Chicken

Inspired by Knead to Cook and Picture the Recipe When I saw Robin at Knead to Cook‘s recipe for Honey Sesame Chicken in the crockpot, I knew immediately that I wanted to make it. My kids always order sesame chicken when we get Chinese takeout. Of course the sesame chicken we get from there is fried […]


Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

Chocolate Mocha Date Bars

These date bars are like your childhood favorites … all grown up. With underlying hints of chocolate, coffee … and Kahlua. And a bit of Nutella in there, too, just for fun. This recipe reminds me of my baby sister. She was the one who just loved date bars when we were growing up. Mom […]


Sesame Noodles with Cucumber

Sesame Noodles with Cucumber

Brianne at Cupcakes & Kale Chips is a great source of food inspiration for me. When she posted a recipe for sesame noodles, I wanted them right away … it was a simple, quick recipe, so I went into the kitchen and made them straight away. I have veggies galore in my kitchen right now, […]
