Multiple Sclerosis Friendly Recipes

September 9, 2016

As is customary, every Friday we will provide you with 3 easy to prepare MS friendly recipes to try this weekend.

Cantonese Crispy Chicken Thighs

Dried shiitake mushrooms are one of the key components to this dish. They pack a giant wallop of flavor because they have more than 15 times the amount of umami as fresh shiitake mushrooms. Plus, you can keep them in your pantry for months and pull them out whenever you need an extra burst of flavor. Did I mention that the chicken skin gets super crispy, the juicy meat is infused with tons of flavor, and you only dirty one pot?


Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice

Traditional Chinese fried rice is basically a dish made from leftovers you have rotting in your fridge, which makes dinner prep a breeze. Dice or chop everything small and uniform and your actual cooking time will only be 10-15 minutes. To make my cauliflower fried rice more “Asian,” I added bacon, scrambled eggs, minced ginger, sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, fish sauce, and coconut aminos. Okay, the bacon part isn’t Chinese but it’s intrinsic for the dish. Feel free to change up this recipe by substituting whatever you have lying around. Try adding some leftover meat to make a complete, one-bowl meal.


Crab & Avocado Temaki

We’ve been sushi fans since forever, so temaki—seaweed-wrapped hand rolls—with spicy crab salad make regular appearances in our kitchen. I usually have all the ingredients for these rolls in our fridge and pantry, and luckily for us, it’s still Dungeness crab season around here, so even the fresh stuff’s readily available. It’s a breeze to throw together this no-cook recipe. In fact, everyone in the family can assemble their own, which means even less meal prep for me.  http://nomnompaleo.com/post/108518507738/whole30-day-19-crab-avocado-temaki
