Healthy Five-Color Veggie Clear Soup (五色清湯)

For health purpose, we are supposed to take at least 5 colors of vegetables a day. For dieting purpose, this is the soup for you. Even when you need delicious and steamy hot supper, look nowhere, this is the one!

Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

“A side dish, that’s as good as a 1-dish meal!”

When come to Vietnamese food, the summer rolls are the sides which I would never missed. Yes, this is my favorite side dish in the Vietnamese cuisine. So much so that I would want to make my own so that I could have it anytime, even at home. And, I would eat summer rolls as a meal, sometimes. Why not, it has all the vegetables, meat, prawns and bee hoon in one! :)

Summer rolls are not difficult to make, but needed quite a bit of preparation work done. I wouldn’t mind, because I knew I would have the best spicy peanut sauce made by myself that I could adjust the taste best suited to my liking. You are right, the summer rolls would never complete without a nice dipping sauce.

Light Papaya Soup

“It’s one of the best soups for health & diet watchers. Also great for all ages!”

All the ingredients used in this soup recipe were truly nutritious. Packed with high content of nutrients, and they were delicious to taste, too.

Some nutritional facts:
Papaya, a fruit that contains not only high amount of antioxidant, but also an enzyme (papain) which helps digest protein. Snow fungus, nourishes your lungs and skin. Black-eyed beans as a kind of legumes. I did not need to highlight the rest of the familiar ingredients. Best thing, this super delicious soup was so flavourful with its natural sweetness from the papaya, we don’t need much of the seasoning here. A pinch of salt would be the limit to it.

Grilled Mixed Herbs Salmon & Tomatoes (Air-Fried)

Crisped and browned on the surface, but tender and moist inside. That’s how my grilled Salmon was. I usually cooked this way when I wanted to have pasta or noodles in sauce, or rice with other saucy dishes.

I wouldn’t serve as it is as a main course, if I did not make a sauce to go along, even though it wasn’t dried at all. I just thought it would be a bit plain.. unless to make some wet sides eg baked beans, gravies baby corns, mashed potato with sauce, etc. Salsa or cheesy spinach might be good, too. Those would do.. Alright, I should do the Western main course style the next time. :)
