Broccoli, Cabbage and Wonton Dumplings Salad

Convenience absolutely makes a difference when putting together a meal on busy days. Store-bought wontons (Bibigo Fully Cooked Mini Wontons Chicken and Cilantro) that take 15 minutes to cook means a quick and easy meal on the table.

This Steamed Broccoli and Wontons Salad completes a meal from store-bought wontons and home-cooked vegetables.

Wontons served with steamed vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, red cabbage and kale

You can always make your own wontons at home (make a batch and freeze portions). If you have leftover boiled (or cooked) wontons, you can also pan-fry those cooked wontons (gyozas goodness!).

Lettuce, Cabbage Buckwheat Noodles Salad

A variety of vegetables, raw and/or cooked, has become my blank canvas, and can easily build up to a healthy and delicious dish.

Today, it is a noodle salad made from assorted vegetables of lettuce and red cabbage, and soba noodles. This can jolly well be a meal when you are eating light.

Salmon or no salmon (for vegetarians), it is all up to you.

Yuba (Tofu Skins) Salad

An appetizer side-dish, this Chilled Fresh Yuba Salad can be easily prepared at home. It might be plain-looking, but with a simple dressing, the sweetness of pure soybean flavor shines through.
