Taking a look at some amazingly easy Chinese food recipes that anyone can make at home. How to get that Asian restaurant flavor in your own kitchen.
It happened again.
I know I’ve been caught in this situation more than once.
You sat down on the couch after a long day, ready to relax. Then you remember you still need to make dinner!
Have no fear! I have a way to make sure you’re never stuck in this situation again.
Check out these 3 effortless Chinese food recipes you can make right in your kitchen that are sure to save the day!
1. Fried Rice Chinese Food Recipes
For me, this is a staple food. Talk about easy Asian recipes!
It is really important to use thoroughly-chilled cooked rice. If it is warm, it won’t fry as well and the rice will clump up and get soggy and sticky.
This is a great opportunity to use leftovers! Grab that rice from the night before, that you put in the fridge.
*2 cups brown rice
*2/3 cup chopped baby carrots
*1/3 cup onions
*1 tbsp green onions
*1/2 cup peas
*1/2 cup butter
*1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
*1 tbsp oyster sauce
*Dash freshly-minced garlic
All that’s left is to scramble those eggs, sauté the vegetables, and stir fry the rice. This classic dish takes less than 30 minutes and can serve lots of people if need be. (Not to mention it is delicious and nutritious!)
There are lots of fried rice recipes out there, but there’s always one thing I do no matter which one I choose.
I love to add delicious yum yum sauce!
2. Chow Mein
Chow Mein is hands down one of my favorite Chinese food recipes.
I think this is the best way to get that Asian restaurant flavor in your kitchen right at home.
All it takes is:
*8 oz lo mein noodles
*1 tbsp peanut oil
*1 carrot, chopped
*1/2 head of cabbage, thinly sliced
*1/2 cup onion
*1/2 cup chicken broth
*Dash of green onions, sliced
Sometimes I like to swap out some of the vegetables above with others like bean sprouts, mushrooms, bell peppers, and water chestnuts depending on what I am craving!
I just can’t say no to all the vegetable health benefits from easy Asian recipes like this.
3. Wonton Soup
This is Chinese food made simple.
Wonton Soup is always good, but I especially love it when I am feeling sick. I use it as a starter if I am hosting a dinner party because it is so easy.
To feed 4 people you need:
*6 cups chicken broth
*1 clove garlic, minced
*1 cup mushrooms
*4 baby bok choy, halved
*1 tbsp soy sauce
*Dash of green onions, sliced
After your broth boils, add the vegetables and wait until they are soft. Then stir in the soy sauce and enjoy!
