I can not tell you how happy I am to be in my new space and all set up after my big web hosting fiasco with Blogger/Google.  I still have a lot of work to do but at least I can create some recipes and work on all the categories and tags later.

Now for the food!  I think you are going to love this dish.  It’s a great mix of salty and sweet with a spicy bite.  This dish is high in protein and is SUPER easy – only 7 ingredients, not counting the water) and you can just throw it all in one pot which saves time on cleanup.  I’m all about the one pot thing lately.

Ginger is a little root with big powers.  It is perfect in both savory and sweet dishes and is used in a lot of Asian cooking. It has anti-inflammatory compounds, is wonderful for digestion-both for relieving gas and soothing your belly and can relieve symptoms of nausea.
