Edamame & Wild Rice Bites with Roasted Carrot Ginger Dressing
This little salad is bursting with flavor and goodness. The mushroom & rice bites are mellow and make you smile, the roasted carrot ginger dressing is tangy and entertaining. It’s vegan and so satisfying that you could easily serve it to you average meat-eater and I don’t even think they would notice the absence of animal on the plate. The hardest part about making this dish was coming up with a name for those delicious bites. There are so many yummy things going on, I just wanted to list all the ingredients. I landed on something pretty conservative and descriptive but ‘mushaboom bites’, ‘wild vegan ballz’ and ‘chia protein amazeballs’ were all considered. Don’t consider making this dish though, just make it, you’ll love it!

Thai iced tea ice cream with coconut sticky rice and fried banana wrapped wontons.
Thai iced tea has a deep, reddish, smoky flavor that when mixed with half-and-half and sweetened condensed milk makes perfect ice cream. Years ago for my final project at the French Culinary Institute I created this recipe by adapting one for tea ice cream from "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book" by Bruce Weinstein. After a few tweaks involving strengthening the tea and substituting condensed milk for sugar, the end result was great. I served it with black coconut sticky rice and fried wonton wrapped bananas — deep, complex flavors with cool, sticky, and crispy textures. But it's tasty enough to stand on its own. The first step is finding the tea. You can score some at your local Asian market, but it's also readily available online. Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Thai Dishes

Chicken and Waffles
I love the fried chicken I grew up on, but this version takes the beauty of the comfort-food classic to another level, and adds a spicy sauce with a twist, for excitement. The technique here uses basically the same principle as twice-fried French fries: you fry the chicken pieces once at medium heat to just cook them through, and then fry them a second time at a higher heat to brown and crisp the skin. The key to achieving this chicken’s extra-crispy skin on the outside and juiciness on the inside is to pat the raw chicken pieces dry and refriger¬ate uncovered for several hours, or preferably overnight, to let the skin dry out. Moisture is the enemy of crispness. With the rice flour and tapioca starch, these waffles have a chewier texture than wheat flour waffles. If you don’t have a waffle iron, the same batter can be used for cooking up 4 large pancakes or 8 smaller ones in a lightly buttered skillet; top them with melted butter and cane syrup as directed for the waffles.

Long-Grain Rice
In Midtown Manhattan, you’ll see (and smell!) chicken and rice carts on almost every city street.

Saffron Rice Pilaf with Lamb Meatballs, Red Peppers, and Dates
Easy, delicious, and different is how I would describe this casserole. Petite meatballs prepared with ground lamb and seasoned with Moroccan spices are nestled into a baked rice pilaf during the last few minutes of cooking. The rice, scented with saffron, cooks to a rich, golden yellow and is accented with bits of red bell pepper and Medjool dates. This recipe is from Sunday Casseroles: Complete Comfort in One Dish.

Tim Wildin is Brand Director for ShopHouse. He likes to use his Thanksgiving leftovers to create a Thai alternative to the turkey sandwich:  “My dad (American) would always make fun of my mom (Thai) and I because he'd say we would make Thai food from leftovers of the most American meal of the year. We'd shred the leftover turkey, mince it really finely, and make 'laab' (a Thai minced meat salad, for lack of a better term) with it. Much better than a turkey sandwich!”

Pomegranate Chicken with Preserved Lemon and Almond Rice Pilaf  Recipe
With fresh pomegranate season almost over, I picked up a pomegranate and a bottle of pomegranate molasses at Dean & Deluca and made a Middle Eastern-inspired, exotic and easy chicken and rice dish — Pomegranate Chicken and Preserved Lemon and Almond Rice Pilaf. Several simple ingredients — pomegranate molasses and seeds, preserved lemons, toasted almonds, cinnamon,cumin, pepper, clove, coriander, ginger, chicken and rice — brought together in a way that is unusual for the American palate and uses relatively basic cooking techniques. The outcome is a meal that is tantalizing to the tongue. In my husband's words, this dish is simply "luscious".
