We Spent A Week Cooking Recipes From This Book For Our Cookbook Blog. Read About Our Results Below!
Hands down, one of our favorite cookbooks in our collection. This book captures all of the best traits of Vietnamese cuisine - simple, flavorful and fresh. Yet, the dishes feel more "elevated" without being complicated or unapproachable.
This is a great book for both the accomplished cook as well as someone with more modest skills - perhaps looking for an introduction to Vietnamese recipes. We featured this cookbook on our food blog. Here are the dishes we chose:
•Char Siu Chicken Banh Mi with Pickled Vegetables - We love banh mi! Special guest appearance by sriracha mayo! Why go out for it when you can make it at home?
•Cauliflower “Wings” and Chili Garlic Chicken Wings - Baking the wings certainly makes for a healthier dish. These were both tasty and accompanied each other perfectly for a dinner.
•Vietnamese Coffee - We love iced coffee, who doesn’t? However, some days you need a bit of razzle dazzle. Vietnamese coffee fits the bill perfectly!
•Spicy Sweet Pomegranate Tofu - The sweetness and heat with a hint of tartness was such a great flavor combination!
•No-Churn Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream - We were nay sayers on the idea of no-churn ice creams. We figured it would be grainy and crystallized. We gave this no-churn Vietnamese coffee ice cream a try. So. Good. It was light and creamy. Color us impressed!
•Vietnamese Empanadas - These little packets of goodness are Vietnamese empanadas. We made these for a dinner party, and wound up with extra filling. The next day we picked up some frozen empanada wrappers to make a quick dinner. The wrappers must have been thawed and refrozen at some point, because they all stuck together. Pasta maker to the rescue! We saved the wrappers by rolling them and re-cutting them. The meal was saved!
