Singapore Noodles

Jan 19, 2015

This noodle dish gets its signature bright yellow colour from golden turmeric. We've substituted leaner pork tenderloin for the traditional barbecued pork (but if you can find the real thing, it's definitely worth using). This recipe yields a lot, so be sure to use a wok or your largest nonstick skillet.

Vietnamese Sandwich (Beef Bánh Mì)

Vietnamese Sandwich (Beef Bánh Mì)

Feb 15, 2011

Bánh mì are crusty French-style buns stuffed with a classic explosion of Vietnamese flavours and textures – sweet and sour, crunchy and soft. To liven things up a bit, we've switched the traditional grilled pork filling for lean flank steak. Plus we use liverwurst as a readily available substitute for the Vietnamese pâté that is spread on the bottom of each bun. For adults, or the adventurous little foodie in your house, add hot chili peppers for an extra kick.

Country Seed Bread

When bread machines first became popular a few years ago, The Canadian Living Test Kitchen got busy adapting recipes. Very easy to make in the machine — and almost as easy by hand — this loaf is nutty, chewy and just plain good.

Maple-Mustard Chicken Thighs with Lemon-Broccoli Couscous

Maple-Mustard Chicken Thighs with Lemon-Broccoli Couscous

Simple pantry ingredients make a flavourful sweet-and-sticky glaze for juicy chicken thighs. Feel free to use frozen broccoli for the couscous, if that's what you have on hand. (Psst, it's cheaper than fresh broccoli, and precut florets will cut down on prep time.) Cost: $3.50 per serving

Szechuan Tofu with Pork

Jun 16, 2009

This spicy Chinese classic, called ma po doufu, is named after the pock-marked (ma) grandmother (po) who served this dish in her restaurant. Stir-fried green onions, ginger, black bean garlic sauce and ground pork provide the flavour, with tofu adding textural contrast. Sprinkle traditional ground toasted Szechuan pepper or toasted hot pepper flakes on top. Serve with rice and snow peas.

My dad is the family's official butcher and meat carver, expertly chopping barbecued duck and pork into bite-size pieces on his makeshift butcher block. When carving turkey, Dad (who loves his gadgets) always trusts his electric carving knife for what he insists is “even” slicing. That carving knife has been the butt of many jokes over the years, but using it has turned into tradition, and our turkey dinners would not be the same without it.

My mom would make Dad's favourite dumplings – called gao ji – to serve alongside a steaming bowl of congee or fried noodles. Traditionally these dumplings are pleated on one side, but we have eliminated this step to simplify the recipe. Enjoy them as is, or with a little soy sauce or Chinese red or black vinegar for dipping. You'll need at least 45 wrappers, and you can freeze any leftovers. – Irene Fong
