Happy Friday everyone! I would like to announce that I am officially a college graduate! Since I graduated in the fall (a semester early!) the ceremony was very small, which was nice. I only knew one girl graduating with me, but I also had the chance to talk to my professor who inspired me to create this blog. We can all thank Mindy for the creation and continuance of Savour the Senses! But back on topic, Friday means time to featured another fellow foodie. This week we have Kiri from Healthy Foodie Travels with a simple, healthy recipe for you all. With that, I give you Kiri:
Chinese Chilled Soy-Glazed Asparagus and Shrimp w/ Warm Tomato Sauce
Hi, I’m Kiri from Healthy Foodie Travels. I’m a German currently living in the United States who loves to travel and experience all kinds of new foods, all the while trying to maintain a weight loss of 100lbs. Recently, I spent my honeymoon in China, and had the most wonderful time seeing the sights and experiencing wonderful vegetable-heavy, delicious dishes that worked perfectly for a healthy yet exciting diet. One of my favorite recipes I found in a Chinese newspaper: Chinese Chilled Soy-Roasted Asparagus With Warm Tomato Sauce, which I love to serve with soy-glazed shrimp, but any protein side should go well with it. This recipe is representative of Northern, or Beijing-style Chinese cuisine, and is especially great in the warmer months. I love the contrast between warm sauce and chilled asparagus – it’s a very refreshing dish that’s easy to make and is colorful on the plate. A perfect way to recreate bits of China at home!
Thanks so much Kiri! What a delicious and healthy recipe! If you or somebody you know would like to be a part of Featured Foodie Friday please e-mail me at savourthesenses (at) gmail (dot) com and we can get you scheduled!
