Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, known throughout the world for his seamless integration of Western and Japanese ingredients and techniques, has several family Christmas traditions that he developed while growing up in Hiroshima, Japan: "My traditional holiday dish to make and eat with my family is Sukiyaki, which is a one-pot soup or stew that is usually cooked at the table as you eat with family and friends. The typical ingredients are beef, vegetables, and tofu,, which are simmered at the table in a shallow iron pot of soy sauce, sugar, and mirin. On Christmas night, my family would get together and eat Sukiyaki which is always a great memory for me. When I was little, beef was really expensive, so my sister and I would always fight over the beef in the dish! It's funny to look back on now, and eating Sukiyaki with my family is one of my fondest memories."

Cashew and Cardamom Fudge Soy Paneer
Redolent with the richness of cashews and the perfume of cardamom, fudge-like kaju barfi is a favorite South Asian sweet. Cooked-down milk, sugar, and ground cashews are combined into a concentrated paste that is seasoned with spices, then pressed into a pan and cooled.  This recipe replaces the milk and sugar with canned sweetened condensed milk and soy paneer (tofu). The modern Indian approach reduces cooking time and adds extra nutrients without compromising flavor and texture. Finely grating the tofu allows it to seamlessly merge with the other ingredients. Edible silver foil typically covers kaju barfi, but it remains gorgeous with the simple pistachio garnish.  Click here for 5 Unusual Ways to Use Tofu.

Grilled Vegetable Napoleons with Spicy Scallion Vinaigrette
Whenever we think of Asian ingredients like bok choy, we tend to think of Asian recipes. But, I was actually interested in something quite different. I had two goals in mind — to create a completely original main course with bok choy, and to see what would happen if I grilled this lovely green veggie. That’s how this main course came to be. Red peppers, zucchini, balsamic-glazed tofu, shiitake mushrooms, and baby bok choy are grilled before being assembled in cheerful napoleons. The succulent morsels are then drizzled with a spicy scallion vinaigrette, adding a dose of heat as well as zingy, green scallion flavors. A hearty and protein-filled main course, these grilled vegetable napoleons pack a lot of flavor in every bite — smoky, deep, spicy, robust, crunchy, it’s a carnival for the taste buds! Best of all, it’s a super healthy dish… Time to fire up the grill! See all appetizer recipes. Click here to see A Vegetarian Grilling Menu.
