Who doesn’t love Asian food? Quick, delicious, sometimes spicy and utterly satisfying, rev up your regular at home meals with these simple tweaks to your favourite dishes.
1/ Swap starch-heavy sushi rice with quinoa. The chewiness adds added texture to sushi rolls, and is full of fibre.
2/ Who doesn’t love a fresh Vietnamese roll? Instead of rice paper, try using tofu sheets (available at Asian groceries), stuffed with fried prawns and rice.
3/ Combine a little Asian flair with tacos. Fry wontons for an extra crisp shell, and top with pickled vegetables, rice, diced avocado and fresh tuna.
