Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling are my top picks for Asian. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. The Field Recordings Chenin Blanc with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

Field Recordings Chenin Blanc

Sun-lit Ectoplasm color. Beautifully balanced aromas of Anjou pear, Meyer lemon, spiced apple and almond cookies followed by a striking palate of cardamom and Key Lime pie.

Instructions

  1. Combine the ingredients in the dipping sauce and set aside.
  2. Combine the raw turkey, garlic, soy sauce & Splenda in a bowl & mix.
  3. Heat a large heavy skillet or wok on medium-high and add 2 t. canola oil. Cook the turkey, once it appears all cooked and the liquid that has come out of the meat, turn it down to medium. You will continue to cook the turkey mix constantly stirring the meat and breaking it into fine crumbles. You will notice all the liquid in the pan is gone and start to see some carmelization on the turkey and garlic, this is good, it adds a ton of flavor.
  4. Now taste the meat. If the balance is too sweet, add a little more soy sauce or if it is to heavy on the soy, sprinkle with some Splenda. You can keep doing this until it taste right. The turkey will be a dark brown color. Then add your diced mushrooms and carrots and cook for another 2-3 minutes more.
  5. Take your crisp lettuce leaves and fill will a large serving spoonful of the turkey mixture, sprinkle with some green onion and add some cucumber slices. Pour some of the dipping sauce over the combo, fold and eat.

Tips

Health Tips

  • There are a variety of sugar substitutes on the market?aspartame, saccharin, acesulfame K, sucralose (Splenda), and most recently, Stevia. Many people are against these kinds of artificial sweeteners because they believe they pose a health risk (note: Stevia is derived from a plant and is technically not an artificial sweetener, although it is usually heavily processed.) Still, there is no conclusive evidence that these sweeteners are dangerous, so use them in moderation if you like.

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

Cooking Tips

  • It can be tricky to bake with sugar substitutes, since they are so much sweeter than regular sugar (as much as 600 times sweeter, in fact.) For this reason, you definitely cannot substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners 1:1. The other difficulty is making up for the volume you lose when you take out the sugar and replace it with a much smaller quantity of a sugar substitute. Do some research before you end up with some disappointing baked goods.

  • Carrots can be stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks. The starch in the carrots will turn to sugar over time, but this is not a problem, they'll just taste sweeter. The academy lesson about carrots contains more useful information.

  • Keeping ginger on hand all the time doesn't mean you have to buy bottled ginger. Instead, freeze fresh ginger whole and grate what you need while its still frozen.

  • Make sure you cook ground meat thoroughly. Grinding meat creates a lot of surface area that bacteria can grow on, so eating undercooked ground meat poses a real health risk.

Green Tips

  • Good news for mushroom lovers: according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), mushrooms are pretty "clean" when it comes to pesticide residue, so you do not have to splurge on extra-expensive organic mushrooms (unless you want to!)
