COOKING SIMPLE CHINESE MEALS AT HOME

For busy office warriors, time is always of the essence. You may not always find enough time to make dinner, but with Thermos® products and its handy thermal technology, you now can! Let’s start whipping up a tantalising meal for your family with these three easy to cook Chinese dishes, complete with a delicious and healthy beverage!

1. Chinese Style Sesame Broccoli

In our previous blog article, we shared the benefits of broccoli and how magnesium helps improve our health in so many ways. Remembering that, we introduce this delectable dish of Chinese Style Sesame Broccoli – tasty, crunchy, fragrant, and undeniably healthy. Using Thermos® Shuttle Chef®, it is  hassle-free as it is a smart way to create this dish, because it not only helps you cook the food, but also keeps it warm!

2. Braised Pork

If you love pork as much as we do, then you must have a go at this dish. Not only is it easy to cook, you will only need a couple of ingredients to make this work. Choose pork belly as your choice of meat, grab some shallots, ginger, and seasoning including soy sauce, cooking wine, and rock sugar, and you are on your way to presenting a flavourful and irresistible meat dish.

3. Sweet Corn and Chicken Soup

Compared to cream-based soups, which are high in fat and calories, broth-based ones are lower in energy density, translating to fewer calories per gram. Contrary to common beliefs, sweet corn is not as fattening and sugary as you think. An ear of corn has the same number of calories as an apple  but lesser sugar content. Furthermore, cooked corn increases antioxidant activity that helps protect our body. Couple that with chicken breast meat and you will get a nutritious soup with lots of protein!

4. Longan Red Date & Wolfberry Tea

If there is any tea that is full of health benefits and helps wash down a heavy meal, it is the Longan Red Date and Wolfberry Tea. Longan fruit is rich in vitamin C and gives a relaxing effect, lowering irritability and reducing fatigue; wolfberry helps control diabetes and lower your cholesterol level. Combine both and you will feel rejuvenated after a hearty meal. Alternatively, check out these five no-bake desserts to finish off your meal.
