4. Spicy Sichuan Green Beans with Ground Pork

In restaurants, Sichuan green beans are typically deep-fried in oil. Linda’s simplified home recipe skips deep-frying for a healthier version of this classic dish. The beans are stir-fried until browned and blistered, then cooked with lively seasonings. With the large quantity of red chiles, the dish looks scorching hot. In fact, if you shake most of the seeds out of chiles, the effect of the chiles is relatively mild. The preserved vegetable or fermented black beans add an authentic, slightly fermented flavor, but is not essential. Omit the pork for a vegetarian version.
5. Steeped Chinese Ginger Chicken in Little Lettuce Cups

This chicken recipe combines two easy recipes adapted from Linda’s book, The Hakka Cookbook, to make a fresh tasting first course or cool summer supper. The chicken is cooked using a no-fuss technique called steeping, which keeps it moist. The accompanying ginger sauce adds a delicate, refined flavor - the perfect compliment to the similarly sophisticated presentation in baby lettuce leaves.
