Grandma Ruby Tom and her grandkids Katherine, Marat, and Sean ring in the Chinese New Year together. Ruby prepares jai (here's her recipe), a healthy Buddhist vegetarian stew (and a good luck food!) that contains 16 ingredients. Each ingredient is separately wok-cooked, then added to the pot, making this a Chinese New Year labor of love. (Ruby also gave us her recipe for Chinese New Year cake.) Ruby was introduced to us by Chowhound Melanie Wong. Thanks, Melanie!
Craving a rice bowl from your favorite Chinese restaurant but can't spare the calories? This citrus-infused chicken teriyaki bowl tastes like takeout but comes in under 450 calories, and it's ready in less than an hour!
These chicken fajitas get their flavor from a homemade marinade featuring dark Mexican beer, soy sauce, lime juice, oil, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic. They can be prepared on the stovetop with a grill pan as directed, or outside over a grill.
