Spring Rolls, Vietnam
2020/06/25 14:24
A popular Vietnamese spring roll dish is nem nuong cuon, which is grilled pork sausage wrapped in rice paper with lettuce, cucumber, carrot, daikon, and mint served with a (usually secret) special sauce. Its cousin, goi cuon, utilizes the same basic ingredients but with shrimp in addition to pork. Nem nuong cuon and goi cuon can be found at food carts and in practically every restaurant in the country.

2020/06/25 14:20
Depending on where you are in the Balkans, the type of meat used in the dish may differ—usually pork, lamb, beef, or a combination of the three. Cevapcici is prepared with onions and garlic and then grilled, boiled, or fried. Five to 10 finger-sized pieces of sausage are often served with home-baked breads used to make sandwiches. On the side you’ll typically find ajvar, a spread that will have you licking your fingers to get every last bit of the roasted red peppers.

Kangaroo has long been eaten by Australia‘s Aborigines. The meat has lots of protein but very little fat. It can be prepared much the same as other meats—as a roast, skewered, or made into sausages or medallions. The meat is best cooked medium rare to medium in order to capture the flavors.

Saag Paneer, India
2020/06/25 14:22
Spinach, chunks of paneer cheese, and spices make up this vegetarian Indian favorite, typically served with rice and a side of warm naan. Paneer is a unique and versatile dairy product. This non-melting cheese typically has the consistency of tofu (which is actually a recommended substitution if you are preparing the dish without paneer). Second, the making of paneer does not involve rennet. This makes the cheese completely lacto-vegetarian and a key source of protein for vegetarians.
