Asia Light by Ghillie James
Ghillie James was food editor of Sainsbury’s Magazine for five years and now writes freelance from her home in Singapore for various magazines, including Delicious.Asian ingredients are fresh, vibrant and renowned for their health benefits, but Asian recipes often aren't as healthy as they seem because of their use of lots of sugar, salt, unhealthy oils and fatty cuts of meat. Asia Light offers nutritious and lower fat ways of cooking classic dishes, such as Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Laksa and Beef Rendang, as well as Ghillie's own creations, including Steam Baked Salmon and Vegetable Parcels with Asian Dressing and Vietnamese Chocolate Coffee Pots. These recipes are packed with superfood ingredients and have the traditional South East Asian balance of hot, sour, salty and sweet. With chapters on: Starters; Soups; Salads; Rice & Noodles; Baked, BBQ and One Pot; Stir-fries; Curries; Ices, Coolers, Cocktails & Sweet Treats; plus a bonus Basics section on how to make more healthy versions of South-East Asian pastes and sauces, this is a cookbook that can be used every day and by anybody.
