The quantity really depends on serving size. This is approx. measurements for four servings.
Peel and cube one large turnip and two small yams. Boil in salted water until the turnip is cooked and the yam is falling apart.
Meanwhile, cube two chicken breasts, season wih salt, pepper, cumin, and red pepper powder, and cook in a couple of tsps of oil in a wok(or, you can poach it to reduce fat). Cut an onion into thick wedges and add that into the wok as well. Then, add the drained turnip and yam to the wok and stir it vigorously so that the yam turns into a gummy paste. Then, add light soy sauce (about 1 tbsp?), more red pepper powder, and mustard (can be hard to find in China, so stock up when you do). Add some boiled water if the "sauce" is too thick. I eat this with some steamed greens, no rice or pasta on account of the yams. Very filling, uses seasonal vegetables, and stores well for lunches.
Hi everyone! Several people requested a forum on healthy dishes that can be cooked at home in China- things that dont' require low-fat this or reduced-calorie that. Please post your favorite foods (Chinese or Western) that are healthy and easily made, or post links to the spark recipes page.
To start off, here is the link to one of my cookbooks: Freezer/Batch dishes that I make.
