Ok, we are back with the second installment of Culinary Adventures With Chef Ann – Your Local Asian Market. Have you ever tried Kohlrabi? Ever had Kohlrabi Slaw? Well, it’s delicious.

Mmmmm mushrooms. There are SO many different types available at the Asian Market. This is a simple dish, basically sautéed mushrooms. The Enoki Mushrooms have a delicate flavor, so the AIP sauce that goes on top of them pairs perfectly. They kind of squeak in your mouth as you chew them. This makes a great side dish!

I love a good soup anytime of the year, especially something a little different. We found Yellow Chives and yet another type of mushroom. We combined everything with some interesting Yam Noodles. And yes, it was delicious!
