1. 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.

There is nothing better than prawns coated with something crispy. Usually its breadcrumbs, but we're using prawn crackers... a double whammy of prawn! We also crisp them up in the oven...much healthier than deep frying :) Our prawns are served with wok fried noodles and crunchy veg!

General Tso's Chicken is a delicious dish you'll find at most Chinese restaurants--and you can make the very same dish in your own kitchen at home. The chicken in this recipe is baked instead of deep fried, which is a little healthier and a lot less messier, if you're into that kinda thing.

Tangy, spicy, and infused with crispy vegetables, this reincarnation is much lighter and fresher tasting. Making General Tso's Chicken at home is also much easier and quicker than you'd think!
