I got this recipe from "Simple Vegetarian Pleasures" by Jeanne Lemlin. I LOVE asparagus and am always on the lookout for new ways to make it. This is such an easy and elegant way to serve it. The asparagus gets a slightly nutty flavor after roasting, which makes it even more yummy.
Adapted from a Chinese cookbook by Jim Lee that was published around 1970. This is one of my all-time favorite cookbooks; I was introduced to it by friends who were Chinese students I knew at University of Virginia. The gai laan which the Chinese eat is not actually broccoli, but broccoli is a good substitute which works well in America, where most of us don't have access to gai laan.
This is "yet another" alternative to the traditional green bean casserole with cream of "something" soups. But with the sour cream and cheese, it is still creamy. This recipe originally came from the cookbook "Candlelight and Wisteria" from the Lee-Scott Academy. It was originally submitted by Thelma Wilson
I just saw this on Food Network, have not had a chance to make it yet. It sounds very interesting. I may chop the apples a bit more than the recipe calls for. Also, I think pecans would be good too. I am putting it here for safe-keeping.
