Chinese-American Week at Good Stock

Chinese-American Week at Good Stock

Good morning!

One of our great loves at Good Stock is the traditional Chinese-American restaurant. Wonton Soup, Hot and Sour Soup, Egg Rolls, General Tso's Chicken, Fried Rice...what's not to love? And it's sort of amazing that almost no matter where you grew up, that place had a pretty good Chinese-American restaurant. So we are using that ubiquitous restaurant as our theme this week.
Our soup for the week is a Chinese Chicken & Corn Soup. It's a lighter, more summery version of what is typically seen on menus. We make a combine chicken and corn stock from fresh sweet corn cobs and the chickens for the soup. We then add a few vegetables before adding spinach and bean sprouts right at the end. It's a really great and light soup. If you want a little more heft in there, feel free to add a sous-vide egg.

Our salad will be changing up throughout the week, but today we will be serving a Summer Vegetable & Lo Mein Salad. Summer squash, red pepper, cucumber, and a few other veggies are tossed with lo mein noodles and a sesame dressing. We are incredibly biased, but we think it's a pretty great way to start the week.

As always, thanks for indulging my musings. Have a great week!

Simply stated, there seems to be no evidence that a diet low in sodium improves health. Said another way, salt is not bad for you.
