This dish resembles Raasam a Southern Indian soup. However, we have adapted this to be made with ingredients more common to American kitchens.
Spicy Napa Cabbage Salad
Napa cabbage is softer in flavor and texture than traditional green cabbage. It is wonderful cooked and raw. This dish is so easy, you will make it often.

Pad Thai is certainly one of the most popular Thai dishes in the US. It has a sweet, sour, spicy combination that is hard to beat.

This dish is inspired by the Korean dish Japchae that uses sweet potato noodles, sometimes called glass noodles. Using the hearts of palm noodles (found in many grocery stores sometimes in the International aisle), makes this dish much healthier and very easy to make.
Kim Chi-Inspired Cucumber Salad
Kim Chi is a staple in the Korean diet. It is usually made with Napa Cabbage and is fermented. It takes several days to make. This recipe is not fermented so it is technically not Kim Chi. It is, however, delicious and is a great side dish with salmon or other fish. It is also good on a sandwich to add some crunch and a bit of heat thanks to the Korean chili powder.
