This dish was inspired by finding purple potatoes and papayas and Chinese cabbage (which is a softer less bitter cabbage) but if you can’t find these items here is a list of substitutes to still be able to make this dish: Instead of purple potatoes use: regular potatoes or sweet potatoes. Instead of Chinese cabbage use regular cabbage. Instead of asparagus use sugar snap peas or green beans. Instead of shallots: use regular onions.
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!
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.
This dish is easy but so elegant looking. If you have picky eaters at home you can keep some of the chicken plain on the side for them and make the rest of the dish for the non picky eaters!
This dish is so quick but has a depth of flavor. Even people who don’t typically like ‘curry’ flavors will like this because, the cauliflower calms the flavors and the honey gives it a sweet depth.
