Cookin' in China
15 Recipes Created by SHERIN1
I am beginning this cookbook with easy recipes I find that are made with things I can readily find here in China. Some things may come from an import store or have to be made from scratch.

Oh no, another fried okra recipe! Yes, but this one is different. It uses crushed cashew nuts (which if you can't buy locally, can be substituted) and toasted wheat germ and sesame seeds for added fiber. My boys all love it and it's eaten up every time I make it.Submitted by GIRLINBRAZIL
This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers. Submitted by HOCKIMAMA
Baked potatoes stuffed with seasoned cottage cheese are a lavish low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-sodium treat.
I call it Farmer's Pot Pie because you should use whatever beans and vegetables you have available according to what is in season and available to you. Skinny because the crust is only on top.Submitted by STRIVE4BALANCE
We love all the sweet flavors and contrasting textures in this simple fruit salad. Sprinkle chopped, toasted nuts or granola on top for crunch.
These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.Submitted by BCJL13
