Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. 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 great choices 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 Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.

Mulderbosch Chenin Blanc

A powerful nose of guava, lime zest and ripe pear braced by honeysuckle and orange blossoms. A juicy palate with opulent passion-fruit, following through from the nose and finishing off with tart grapefruit characteristics. The refreshing acidity is perfectly counteracted by a creamy mid palate and subtle oak-derived spice. The 2011 vintage is a more fruit-driven style that is fresher and drier comparing to the 2010 vintage. A delightfully accessible wine that is mouth-wateringly moreish. Partner with shellfish, grilled tuna, grilled sardines, lemon and herb roast chicken, or vegetable stews.

Instructions

1. Make the crispy wontons: Preheat oven to 375 degrees f. Lay the wontons out on a large baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with the Chinese five spice and cayenne. Flip the wontons over and repeat. Stack all the wonton skins on top of each other and slice into 1/2-3/4-inch strips. Spread the strips in an even layer back onto the baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until crisp and golden brown, flipping the strips halfway through and rotating the baking sheet. (Watch carefully that they don't burn) Remove from the oven and let cool before using. 2. Prepare the dressing: In the jar of a blender, add 1/2 c. peanuts and 2 T. canola oil. Blend until completely smooth, about a minute, scraping down the sides of the blender jar as necessary. Add in the remaining canola oil, lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar, sriracha, ginger and garlic. Blend until smooth. 3. In a large bowl combine all the vegetables. Add the dressing and the remaining 1/2 c. peanuts. Toss well to combine. You can either mix the wontons into the salad, or reserve them for crumbling onto individual portions.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • 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

  • Fish sauce is a popular ingredient in several Asian cuisines made from salted, fermented fish. It is used to kick up the umami in a dish. If you don't have fish sauce, you can try substituting Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce.

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

Green Tips

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!

  • Good news: cabbage is not only cheap, it is also one of the "clean fifteen" so you do not have to spend extra to buy it organic, unless you really want to.
