Dressing Up Take Out Dinners

Chinese take-out doesn't have to be a dreary last resort meal, or even an unhealthy or unattractive choice for the exhausted cook. At Cafe Drake HRV we order the lighter, less oily menu items like Steamed Bean Curd with Broccoli in Garlic Sauce and Vegetable Dumplings (steamed not fried, thank you very much).

Freshness and more complex flavors are the benefits of dressing your take out with items like pea shoots snipped from the kitchen window, slivered scallions from the fridge and homemade toasted chili oil. Learn how to make your own chili oil HERE in the Cafe Drake HRV archives.
