If you are making the Indian chummus with this meal, make a double batch of onions and use half for the chummus and half for this salad to save time
This is my version of sweet and sour chicken. You won’t feel heavy or gross after and you will love the light flavors. This reheats remarkably well because you are cooking the chicken until it is just done, not overcooking. If it is quicker for you, you can put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender instead of chopping it all! If you don’t like cilantro or peanuts you can use cashews, almonds and fresh mint or basil or just eat as is!
Here is an amazing trick for vegetable stock. Save all the scraps of fresh food that you would normally throw out every week (example: sweet potato peels, tops of onions, leaves of celery, stems of herbs and put it in a large pot and boil for 2 hours, salt to taste and there you have it! The more vegetable scraps the better its flavor!) You can do this and freeze it, you can do it with turkey necks and chicken or beef bones to add more flavor but it is the best! Then you can strain it and freeze it or strain it right into this soup!
Make extra of the peppers and you can put them in any sandwich, soup, chicken, fish and omelettes..they will last a week in your fridge and you will be so happy to have them on hand.
Lemon zest is so refreshing! Invest in a good quality (not expensive) zester and you will forever thank me! If you have fresh corn, its even better, just slice it off the cob and add it to the salad bowl with the cooked edamame.
