Its about balance
A handful of crisp, colourful vegetables. Protein-rich chicken or salmon. A sprinkle of carbohydrates like noodles or rice. Thats the recipe for family meals in China that are full of nutrition.
A swift stir-fry at a sizzling heat with just a tablespoon of oil is all we use for proper Chinese food with locked-in goodness. Plus we mix things up with steamed, slower-cooked stewed and braised dishes too. That means not too much oil. And not too much elbow grease either.
Time for tea
We often pop the kettle on during or after dinner. Thats because a pot of Chinese tea is said to help with digestion and cleanse the stomach after eating.
