Little white cartons are cute, but takeout can be costly—and the food’s never as tasty as when it’s homemade. Stir up an Asian creation of your own with healthier ingredients, better flavor and a swift kick of spice (if that’s the way you like it!). It’s a great way to use up brown rice leftover from last night’s dinner, or lonely veggies lurking in that produce drawer.

The simmering of soy sauce, sesame oil and ginger transport us to the far eastern corner of the globe – which is exactly how these Asian-inspired lettuce wraps so graciously honor the Chinese New Year. You’ll find all those familiar flavors sautéed into mixed veggies and protein-packed tofu. Whether you’re celebrating this momentous day or gearing up for a socially slammed weekend of your own, this low-carb dish is a light and delicious way to kick things off.
Bok choy is big when it comes to nutrition—you get more than 100% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A with just one cup! Also packed with vitamin C and calcium, this stalky, celery look-alike belongs to the cabbage family and sometimes goes by the name Chinese chard. With mild flavor and sturdy texture, it works wonders in soups, salads or stir-fry dishes, including this one, where it’s paired with garlic and ginger for classic Asian flavor.
Oh no! It’s almost 6 p.m., you haven’t even thought about dinner and the hungry crowd on the couch is getting restless. Luckily, all you need is 30 minutes to throw together this simple stir-fry, loaded with veggies and whatever protein (chicken, shrimp or tofu) you have on hand. Serve it with steamed rice or noodles, and you’ve got a nutritious, filling meal your family will love.
Put down the phone. Guilt-free Chinese takeout is being made in-house tonight. You’ll enjoy the familiar flavors of soy, sesame and onion. But instead of the usual peanut sauce, spaghetti-style noodles are tossed with almond butter for a lighter, creamier taste. With a few extra veggies tossed in and a pair of chopsticks, you’ve got dinner in the bag…er, bowl.
