Orange chicken and some zoodlemein
So, I'm trying to not buy anything fresh before we head off to our vacation🍅🥒🍒. Hence, the lack of color in this dish. It's driving me a little crazy. I think it's the photographer in me. I love having different textures, and color in my pics. But, I don't want to buy too much fresh of anything, because I will come home to a stinky fridge. This should be topped with beautiful green scallions, and bright green snow peas instead of my frozen ones. Oh well, at least this Monochromatic dish tasted yummy and fit my macros.
Recipe: From my Master Chef cookbook. Posted Pic of recipe in the next pics.
-used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce
- I didn't use vegetable oil. I just spritzed my pan with a little olive oil
- zoodled up some zucchini noodles for some chowmein. Added some almonds, Cashews would have been so yummy but getting ready to take off so...almonds tasted good. And just added a tablespoon of coconut garlic aminos to the zoodlemein.
-oh and a little brown rice on the side. Forgot to dice up and Sautee some white onion, lightly scramble an egg, then add rice to onion and eggs with a teaspoon of sesame oil. Next time! But, plain worked just as good and I got to sit down to eat faster.

My Punjabi childhood was filled with unconditional love and paronthes (parathas) from my grandmother. I still recall waking up to the smell of fresh ghee (clarified butter) and paronthes on weekends and some weekdays too. If you are a Punjabi or have a Punjabi friend you know how much we love our paronthes! It is only the Punjabis who can roll up anything in wheat dough and serve it with fresh butter and yogurt and it will taste delicious!!! For years after my grandmother passed away I craved for paronthes made fresh by her, but could never replicate the recipe with fresh homemade ghee, hand churned butter and fresh yogurt! ........................................................Read more and get the recipe....

If you're dieting Round a little up from the restaurants nutrition label, if you're bulking: round down or keep it the same. This looks about right tho. 👌 Study break today included Chest session and my First deep tissue massage. Wow if you haven't had one yet, and you lift. Go. I feel like I'm floating. 😂 Picked this up on the way home- So worth it, anyone a Panda Fan also?
Fantastic 20 Minute Meal No. 4: Orange Chicken⠀
Craving takeout? This recipe is a winner! I (@EmSchwartzRDN) love this recipe because it's a lightened-up version, but still flavor-packed and takes less time than it would take to drive to a restaurant and pick something up. ⠀
½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast⠀
¼ cup tamari soy sauce sauce (see note below)⠀
¼ cup corn starch⠀
2 Tbsp. water⠀
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided⠀
¾ cup pulp free orange juice concentrate, thawed⠀
3 Tbsp. barbecue sauce⠀
2 cups cooked brown rice⠀
Sesame seeds and sliced green onions, for garnish⠀
Cut chicken breasts into 1-1½-inch cubes. Whisk together tamari soy sauce, cornstarch and water. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Allow the chicken to marinate for 5 minutes.⠀
Whisk together 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil, orange juice and barbecue sauce. Set aside.⠀
Heat 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and add to the skillet. Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes, or until cooked through.⠀
Add the orange sauce to the chicken and cook for 6-10 minutes, stirring constantly until the sauce has thickened.⠀
Serve over brown rice, and top with sesame seeds and sliced green onions, if desired.⠀

We went to @lovinghutvegan in Elk Grove for lunch today! The portions are HUGE and the food is DELICIOUS!!! Brought with me a whole group of carnivores and they were impressed with the tastes , flavors, and textures!! We tried a little bit of everything all the rices are amazing but the Thai was the best, curry fried rice was delicious and the regular fried rice also great!!! The Lucky Chow main is delicious (probably going to hear that a lot because seriously everything was so good!) wasn't overly veggie filled which I liked and the flavor was wonderful!
The hot and sour soup bowl is as big as your head with an equally big robust flavor.
The garlic noodles were just what they say GARLIC FILLED great for garlic lovers but a bit salty for me. (maybe from the butter I am not sure - I am also sensitive to sodium - note no one else complained or noticed)
The golden wontons were crispy deliciousness ! It says filled with soy protein, tofu and onions but it is packed with flavor!!! My favorite was the orange wonder WOW wow wow !!! You must try this!!! In order I would say
1. Orange Wonder (like #orangechicken )
4. Lucky chow mein (really 2-4 are more of a tie!) #chowmein
5. Fried rice
6. Golden #wontons
7. #Garlic noodles
I was worried about he tofu that is in everything but it is so well cooked and prepared don't be scared!!!we actually decided to return for our final dinner here in SAC!
The only slight complaint you have to be proactive for your own service and kind of wave down the servers but it is a great place with great quality and quantity of food for the cost! #veganfoodporn#vegan#plantbased#veganasianfood#veganasiancuisine#noodles#mmmgood#dinnerwithfriends#mealsharing
