Asian Confusion

We were supposed to go grocery shopping today, but with a doctor's visit for Son #1, work, etc., it just never happened. As a result, the cupboards are getting pretty bare. So, I pulled together a few Asian dishes into some kind of dinner.

Crispy Tofu:
Take one pkg of tofu, drain, and pat dry with a paper towel. Slice into triangles. Toss in cornstarch and fry in oil on high heat. Serve with warmed VH cherry sauce drizzled over top (hey, I know it's not authentic, but it is tasty).

Yellow Curry Noodles:
Heat one can of coconut milk in a saucepan until simmering. Add 1/2 tsp of yellow (or red) curry paste, soy sauce or salt to taste, and sugar to taste. Serve over cooked rice vermicelli noodles.

Let's face it, I don't really know how to make sushi. But, I do enjoy rolling things up in nori sheets. The kids really don't like wasabi, so I aimed for a sweeter taste. Aside from the rice, I put in steamed carrots, sliced uncooked tofu, and a bit of hoisin sauce.

I just stumbled across your blog - it's great! I laughed at "asian confusion," the food wave recently seems to be "fusions." Awesome blog, can't wait to read more.

for the sushi, i'm thinking maybe some slices of cooked yam might be tasty. and cucumber is always a favorite. you could maybe trie a fake california roll with some nayo/tofu mix with some avacado?

just a thought.

dang. your blog always makes me hungry.
