Lionheads’ Hot and Sour Soup

If you haven't noticed, I've been on quite the quest to make healthier Chinese food. Because I have a condition known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, I can't have most Chinese food at restaurants due to the MSG, food colouring, etc. Here is a healthier version that will surely warm you up and clear your sinuses in this chilly, but beautiful cold weather.

Lionheads’ Jerk Pasta

This dish was partly inspired by my mom’s cooking. She used to make something like this when I was a child. Cremini and onions are meant to be together! The jerk sauce gives it a kick, while the basil and hoisin sauce give the dish a unique flavour, while keeping the spice in check (well, kind of!). Most importantly, it’s an easy and fast recipe. I hope you like it.

Lionheads’ Congee

During my year off from my full-time job last year, I don't think I was sick once. Since I returned to work recently, I've already been sick twice. This latest cough/cold I have made me crave a traditional Chinese dish called congee. It's usually made with a lot of meat, seafood and MSG in restaurants. Here is a simple, healthy recipe that will make you feel a better. Not only is it tasty, but it also had a soothing effect on my very sore throat. Even if you're not sick, this is a nice dish for a cool autumn day.
