Asian Food Recipes

Asian food recipes can come from more than 48 different countries as Asia is the largest continent in the world in both area and in population. 

Foods from Armenia, China, Korea, Mongolia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam can be included in Asian food recipes.

On this page I've featured some of my favorite Thai and Korean foods which I'm a much bigger fan of than the common Chinese fare.

There is just something very special about the flavors that go into making Thai sauces!   And because of my Korean ancestry, I'm a big fan of some of the dishes that come from Korea. 

Asian food recipes can easily be made at home once you find the ingredients and learn a few tips on how to make your favorite Asian food recipes.

Korean food is known for its very strong and pungent flavors.  These Asian food recipes are commonly seasoned with Korean red chilies. 

The only Asian country that I've been to so far is south Korea.  It was a culture shock - that's for sure.

The one thing that I regret about that trip is not trying enough authentic Korean foods because sadly I was into the vegan diet at the time. 

However, because of my Korean ancestry I got to experience authentic Korean food from my grandmother when I was growing up.

Bibimbap Recipes - One of my family's favorite Korean dishes when dining out at a Korean food restaurant.

There are many variations that you can experiment with or create when making a Bibimbap recipe at home.  You can stick to the more traditional version or make a raw meat Bibimbap or even a low carb Bibimbap.
