I made this Chinese Napa cabbage side dish recipe using half a cabbage and half the ingredients, and it made a great dish for 2 people. I made soy sauce chicken to go with it.
To make that, you need to slice chicken breast in half across the width, then soak it in soy sauce for an hour and cook on the griddle until cooked through.
The 2 dishes together were lovely. You could also serve noodles or rice on the side but I didn’t. This recipe is very easy and it really brings out the Chinese Napa cabbage side dish flavor. Even if you aren’t sure whether or not you are a cabbage fan, this dish is worth trying, and cooking cabbage in this way means it not only makes a good Asian side dish but it also tastes good!

These simple zucchini pancakes make a great breakfast and you can make them in advance, so what is not to love about that?
Low in calories and fat (especially if you fry them in cooking spray rather than butter or oil) they can be enjoyed with sausage or bacon, or simply as they are, perhaps with some garlic mushrooms on the side or a broiled tomato. Try these simple zucchini pancakes and you will be surprised how great they are.
Different Types of Pancakes
Pancakes range from thin and crepe-like to thick and fluffy, and different people prefer them different ways. And yes some even prefer these simple zucchini pancakes. Personally I am more a crepe person and I love large thin crepes rolled around savory ingredients like mushrooms, garlic, goat cheese and walnuts. My mouth is drooling saying that. Nobody knows how to make crepes like the French.
Learn how to make caramelized carrots because this winning side dish goes with everything. This very easy recipe makes a lovely side dish. Carrots offer a natural sweetness but adding butter and a little sugar to the carrots gives them a wonderful crunchy glaze. Pair these with meat or poultry, adding some mashed potatoes too, for a great dish.
I like to peel and chop mine into fat matchsticks but it’s up to you whether or not to peel, and also whether to cut them into slices, chunks or strips. The thinner they are cut the less time they will take to cook.
How to Make Caramelized Carrots: Honey or Sugar
I have made this recipe before using honey instead of the sugar but I found the honey flavor too strong. You can experiment with it if you want, or try brown sugar, but I think it’s better with white sugar. That’s just something I discovered when learning how to make caramelized carrots.
