Asian Recipes

The following dishes, are a compilation of Asian dishes thaat I'm putting together for Cookbook #5. My next cookbook will be focussed on Asian cuisine. Chinese, Korean, Vietnames, Thai, etc. My goal is to work every single recipe, meticulously, so that they are as low in fat, calories & 'points' as possible, without sacrificing flavor or portion sizes. Unlike a lot of 'popular' ww food bloggers... I'm a mad scientist with ingredient swaps. Where one of them has 6 point orange chicken... mine is 1 AND breaded. Where they have 5 point beijing chicken... mine is 1. It's how I roll. It's a personal challenge for me to make things as low point and calorie as possible. My goal for this next cookbook, is to have a wide assortment of entrees and soups, from all around Asia. As far as I know, it's the first Cookbook devoted solely to Asian food, with all recipes developed specifically with weight watchers food guidelines in mind. I am hoping to have it completed by late spring, 2021. All dishes will be added to this page, once completed.
