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 […]


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? […]


Spicy Asian Chex Mix

Spicy Asian Chex Mix ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Asian #hot #snack #mix #recipe

I’ve always adored Chex mix from the time I was a kid … and I’ve always loved Asian snack mixes … especially the spicy ones (at least since adult-ing happened to me) … and the holidays always seem to be the time when I most want a good snack mix, both for myself and for […]


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 […]


Asparagus Smoked Salmon Sushi

https://www.facebook.com/SumptuousSpoonfuls/photos/a.144643002300378.28249.104889452942400/440816529349689/?type=3&theater

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 […]


Zucchini Kale Fried Rice

Zucchini Kale Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #Asian #zucchini #friedrice #recipe

Hurrah garden season is here! I am a garden beggar this year … the only plants I have growing in my little container garden are herbs and a single tomato plant. Oh, and there are two little sweet pepper plants that refuse to die from last year … and they are stubbornly making peppers, despite […]


Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken

Hawaiian Huli Huli Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #tender #juicy #Hawaiian #grilled #chicken #recipe

Adapted slightly from Hawaii Magazine I’m getting ready for the luau later this month and oh man, is it fun “testing” out these Hawaiian recipes! Being landlocked in the midwest means I can’t serve some of the more exotic Hawaiian dishes, even if I could somehow get my hands on the ingredients. I figure that’s probably […]


Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice

Mushroom Cauliflower Fried Rice ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #cauliflower #friedrice #recipe

Adapted from Eat Yourself Skinny You guys, as a healthy food blogger I feel like I’ve betrayed you. I’m SO sorry! Seriously I can’t believe I waited this long to bring you cauliflower fried rice. It’s something I’ve been seeing all over the blogosphere and wanting to try, but something held me back. It’s such a silly little […]


Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms

Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #swiss #burger #appetizer

Think mushroom swiss burger in bite-size form. These juicy little bites are so pretty and fun to serve and they taste just like mushroom swiss burgers! I mixed some quinoa and spinach into the lean burger meat so they are healthy too. The ketchup, mustard, and onion are mixed into the meat too. We had our Easter […]


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 […]


Crockpot Za’atar Pot Roast

Crockpot Za'atar Pot Roast ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #slowcooker #easy #beef or #venison #roast #recipe

I made this super simple roast for dinner for me and my two almost-adult-like children one day to go with our pillow biscuits. It’s a versatile recipe that you can use for the main course of a dinner, for the meat and au jus for a Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, or for a delicious meaty addition […]


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 […]


Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken

Easy Honey Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #teriyaki #chicken #recipe

A super simple chicken recipe you can have on the table in 20 minutes. It is seriously that fast to make. While the rice cooks, you can have the chicken DONE. Toss in some veggies and you have a complete meal. If you add lots of vegetables, you might need to make more sauce. Fortunately, […]


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 […]


Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs

Honey Rosemary Steak Kabobs ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #grilled #steak #recipe

It’s that time of year … tax and birthday season. The birthday that affects me most is my daughter’s April birthday. She and I have been scrambling to clean the house and prepare for this big event for about 2 weeks now. I caught a little spring cold in the process, which made the whole […]


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 Ginger Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders

Asian Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sliders #recipe

Highly adapted from All Recipes. These little munchie burger-lings are a little deceiving … they look like hamburgers … and so they are … but they have all the flavors of Asia packed inside them, plus a couple veggies hiding inside there. They have a touch of spicy heat, garlic, and freshly grated ginger. The […]


Grilled Honey Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken

Grilled Honey Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #recipe

Do you ever get tired of making the same old same old on the grill? Yeah, that was me the other night. I wanted to grill something a little different, but then again, not TOO far from normal so my daughter would still eat it. I decided it was time for some grilled fruit with […]

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 […]


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 […]
