Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites: 100 Recipes That Are Fast, Fresh, and Simple Enough for Tonight's Supperby Jaden Hair
Synopses & Reviews
Steamy Kitchen creator Jaden Hair, the top Asian cooking blogger, gives a healthy and truly inspired overhaul to more than 120 classic Asian recipes, making them accessible and easy for home cooks.
The Steamy Kitchen's Healthy Asian Favorites speaks to a new wave of healthy eating without the sacrifice. Author Jaden Hair, whose Steamy Kitchen website and blog offer home cooks quick and easy recipes, has developed a collection of dishes that are flavor-packed, naturally gluten-free, and include little to no meat. In addition to explaining how to do away with the goopy sauces and high-calorie counts we've grown accustomed to with Asian cuisine, Jaden offers bright, interesting, and unquestionably unique recipes inspired by food from across Asia, such as Malaysian Mango Pickle, Indonesian Gado Gado Lettuce Wraps, and Japanese Blackened Tofu with Ginger Ponzu Sauce. Her use of fresh orange juice and vinegar as a sweet-and-sour sauce, and loads of fresh herbs and citrus, packs in flavor without the extra calories.
“Should we ever tinker with the classics? Absolutely! In her Healthy Asian Favorites, Jaden Hair offers every Asian food lover and home cook one hundred new recipes that are lighter, healthier, and more reflective of today’s taste and lifestyle.

“Jaden’s latest concoctions embody both tradition and innovation. The recipes are fresh, intentionally healthful, and just indulgent enough to need to sneak back into the kitchen for second and third helpings.” Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook
“The thing I love most about this book is Jaden’s emphasis on bright flavors, fragrant spices, and fresh produce. Her enthusiasm is infectious, and translates into a substantial book filled with heart and achievable weeknight inspirations.” Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day
“I love Jaden! She’s the Queen of Fun. Now she’s bringing the party to your kitchen with her new spin on classic Asian dishes. The recipes are completely doable for the home cook, utterly delightful to eat, and as an added bonus, easy on the waistline.” Elise Bauer, creator of Simply Recipes
“Jaden Hair’s Healthy Asian Favorites showcases her love of food and her desire to share the many tricks and terrific recipes she’s mastered. Jaden’s recipes are snappy and approachable, and she wisely leaves the 'healthy' part implicit, focusing instead on the pleasure — the fun! — of Asian cooking.” Amanda Hesser, co-founder of Food52.com and author of The Essential New York Times Cookbook
"In Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites, Jaden brings down to earth all the irresistible Asian recipes that many of us love ordering in restaurants but could never imagine making at home. Everything from a simple Egg Drop and Tomato Soup all the way up to a Salmon Honey Teriyaki and even an impressive Chinese Hot Pot Party is presented in a straightforward way, using ingredients that most anyone can get at a supermarket. It makes Asian cooking possible for real home cooks like me, and it challenges me to tackle new frontiers in my kitchen." Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman
