Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip:

Mixing raw chicken slices with cornstarch and egg whites is a Chinese cooking technique called "velveting." It prevents meat from drying out while cooking in a stir-fry and provides a soft, velvety texture.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Mixing tomato paste with a low- or no-calorie sweetener is a short-cut to replace ketchup in a recipe without the extra sodium of the condiment.

Tip Icon

Tip: 1 teaspoon of ground ginger can be substituted for the fresh; just mix into the sweet and sour sauce in advance.
