Love Asian food, but don't think you have the time to cook it at home? Marie Wilson's 30-Minute Asian Meals shows you how to prepare healthy, tasty Asian meals at home in 30 minutes or less.
Her cooking strategy is based on how long it takes to prepare rice—so that all the elements of these delicious meals are ready at the same time. She shares lots of helpful hints for quick-and-easy preparation and cooking, and demonstrates how her approach allows you to enjoy the exotic flavors and healthy benefits of Asian cuisine any day of the week.
The recipes are organized by country—covering the national cuisines of China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines. Each chapter offers a broad range of dishes—including beef, seafood, poultry, tofu, egg and vegetable dishes along with soups and salads. Each chapter also includes a shopping list of key ingredients that will become indispensable parts of your Asian cupboard. A food glossary demystifies the less common ingredients and suggests substitutions when possible.
Marie Wilson lived in Thailand long enough to learn the local customs and language, and began what turned out to be a lifelong love affair with Asia and its cuisines. She lives in Berkeley, California.
