Homemade Asian Food

4 years ago

This is what I made for dinner a couple weeks ago. I was at the grocery store and not entirely sure what I wanted for dinner. I found some pea pods in the produce department and I decided to make Asian food. I picked up some ground chicken and some veggies and home I went to get creative.

I love pea pods in oyster sauce at my local Chinese restaurant so I decided to make a homemade version. I washed the pea pods, removed the "spine" and put them into a pan with like a tablespoon of water and let them start to cook. I then added in a little soy sauce (low sodium) and some oyster sauce and let them cook a little bit. It doesn`t take a whole lot to cook them since you don`t want them mushy you want them rather al dente.

I then made some Asian chicken patties/"burgers". I took lean ground chicken and added it into a bowl with some shredded carrot, minced garlic, minced ginger, fresh bean sprouts, sliced onion, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and soy sauce. I mixed it all together and formed patties, then put them into a pan to cook thru.

Since I didn`t have a whole lot of time to make rice (it was the last thing I got around to making) I decided to use some Minute Brown Rice. I followed the direction and cooked it on the stove top. I actually added a little too much water and had to take some out as it was cooking because I realized I made a ding-bat error.

Overall the meal was very good! The chicken patties and the pea pods being my favorite. The rice was alright, but next time I`d prefer my homemade fried rice.

Do you make healthy alternatives to Asian food at home?
