Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap Bowls

Asian Chicken Lettuce Wrap Bowls – 5 Points

If you’ve ever had those adorable little Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, you know how tasty they are, but also how messy they can be to eat.

Egg Roll Stir Fry

Egg Roll Stir-Fry Recipe – 5 Smart Points

I’ve really been trying hard to minimize grains from my diet. I just feel a lot better, and have a lot less cravings when I don’t eat them. So most of meals are packed with meats and vegetables. I got the idea for this after salivating while watching my daughter eat a fried egg roll from our local Chinese restaurant.

Asian Noodles – 7 Smart Points

I love pasta. It’s one of my many weaknesses. I think I enjoy it so much because it’s something that I can do quickly, it tastes great and I’ve found some really good gluten free noodles that taste wonderful. I love to make garlic noodles. I used to just do noodles with my favorite seasonings. I’ve been adding a variety of vegetables. With the fresh garden vegetables right now, this is just perfect to add your favorite vegetables to whip up a quick and easy pasta dish. I like my noodles with just a little bit of spice, so I use sweet chili sauce. However, if you like a little more spice, use Sriracha instead of sweet chili sauce.

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Asian Garlic Noodles – 5 Smart Points

Asian noodles are one of my favorite ways to whip together a quick lunch for myself when there aren’t any leftovers. I love the flavors of the soy sauce, chili sauce and sesame oil combined with the rich and spicy garlic. My favorite part of these noodles is how easy they are to put together. I used buckwheat noodles in this recipe, but you can use any type of noodle you want. I will frequently use a gluten free spaghetti noodle, because it’s what I have on hand. Add more of your favorite vegetables and even toss in some leftover chicken breast to add more protein to the dish. The dark noodles, bright and cute pepper rings and tender zucchini noodles are perfectly seasoned. It’s a delicious meal that’s ready in no time!

Asian Tossed Salad with Tofu – 7 Smart Points

There are two things about this recipe that I love – salad and Asian. This salad is filled with Asian flavors, from the garlic and sesame dressing to the seasoned tofu. Tofu was an acquired taste for me. Growing up, my mom would make it, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture, so it took a long time before I tried it again and realized that I actually like it. The key to really tasty tofu is to make sure it’s seasoned well. Typically, you can’t stir it much, or it will disintegrate, so just simmer it for a while (15 – 25 minutes) in some seasoned broth and you’ll have a seriously tasty meal when you’re done. It’s something you can add to Oriental soups (like a chicken noodle), Asian noodles (even just spaghetti with a peanut dressing and tofu) or serve it on top of rice.…
