My seventeenth recipe! Chicken adobo is a popular Filipino dish
that is made by marinating chicken in a mixture of vinegar, soy sauce,
and garlic. The chicken is then cooked in the marinade and served with
rice. The dish is easy to make yet so delicious for meal prepping!

My thirteenth recipe! Japanese Curry (or Kare) is a flavorful and
well-liked dish for any occasion. I cooked it this time for my meal
prep, and it was a great choice. I used a pre-made curry roux and topped
it with some flavorful chicken (or no chicken for a vegan alternative).
I will definitely be making this again in the future!

My seventh recipe! I have never made fermented foods (pickles,
kimchi, etc) before and this was definitely a first. This recipe used
many Asian ingredients, which are sometimes a pain in the rear end to
obtain (such as gochugaru spice). The outcome came out pretty well,
although I think I can balance out the cabbage and radish portions
better if I made it again (which I definitely will!).

My fifth recipe! Since I have a Nepali friend, they showed me how
to make one of the most popular dishes in Nepal, momo! Essentially, momo
are dumplings, commonly served with a spicy tomato sauce. We made 175
momo, but this recipe below is scaled down for 100. It’s also a popular
street food in Nepal, and can be served for any event!

My third recipe! Nihari is a Pakistani beef stew made with a lot
of spices and seasoning, as well as beef shank. I decided to use an
Instant Pot version of this recipe to make it cook faster, cut down on
the portioning, and made some substitutions along the way.

My sixth recipe! One of my childhood favorites, I went to my
grandmother’s to learn her famous recipe (Meat Zongzi). Since China’s
actual national dish (Peking Duck) is near impossible to make at home, I
decided to learn one of my grandmother’s recipes. Zongzi is essentially
a stick rice dumpling, which is a tradition to eat during the Dragonboat
(Duanwu) Festival. It is a pretty complicated recipe, but I hope you
