Steamed rice under curry chicken with bean sprouts, broccoli, green onion and cranberries.

Low sodium, no MSG

Low sodium, no MSG

And of course it’s all no sodium/low sodium.  Stir fry it or steam it with the rice.

Once it’s all in the bowl steaming sprinkle coconut across the top and a splonge of fig preserves on the side to simulate chutney.  Chopped cilantro, ancho molido, minced garlic and minced ginger to taste.

Raw peanuts sprinkled into it and you’ll be ready to rock and roll.

Believe me when I say it’s easy to discover you’re going to have to put some leftovers into the freezer.  It’s containerized cargo for the digestive tract.

Don’t try this anywhere but home.

Curry fish for the Gods only

ironhorse wall menu

The pink haired, much pierced daughter of the Hong Kongish couple owning the Iron Horse [low sodium] Asian restaurant spent a year or more doing the menu-items on the walls and ceiling. Prices don’t change much and aren’t likely to, I’m thinking.

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read.

A person gets a hankering to eat someplace with storebought food occasionally, and if he does he can figure on getting a salt-load worthy of the Morton Girl.  Here in Olathe there’s a Chinese joint named the Iron Horse tries to breach the pattern, might even succeed except for the taste.  It’s not great, but they’ll swear there’s no added salt and no wossname monosodium glutamate.

But I gradually am coming to think I can’t afford to eat in food joints, and that they can’t make as good an Asian food as I can, and I know how much salt is in it.  Without having to listen and feel around for spots in front of my eyes or blind staggers.  Maybe if Chinese steel weren’t so lousy I’d be more prone to believe what’s said about the contents of food items.

Anyway, I was leading up to saying I made up the most toothsome stir-fry  curry dish without any salt at all last night, with steamed rice.  Gave Jeanne a taste before dumping it onto the rice.  A look of delight crossed her face briefly before she gasped, “Wow!” and ran for something to drink.

She’s of the opinion that all my years of loving habenero and other seasonings have left me bereft of taste buds.  Claimed she could feel that spoonful burning it’s way all the way down her goozle.

Being the best no-sodium Asian chef in Christiandom’s fairly nice, but I can’t find anyone else who can eat my creations.

Curry steamed ginger blueberry okra pepper asparagus on rice

This rice/veggie steamer might be the single electrical appliance I've used more than any other my entire lifetime.  Originally cost me $1.00 still in the never-been-open-box at the Salvation Army Thrift Store, Kerrville, Texas.  Several years of heavy use for that buck.

Hi readers.

I like to get a few calories with my meals, so I used half-jar of strawberry preserves from Dollar Tree [$1.00] as chutney.  Spices added were celery seed, black pepper, lime powder, onion powder, in addition to the various chopped poblanos Anaheim green bell peppers and fresh cilantroso on in the taste explosion.

Curry steamed ginger blueberry okra pepper asparagus on rice: If it’s looks you’re after you could toss a sprig of parsley across it, I suppose, or add a slice of orange, maybe.

It went down smooth and easy, didn’t attempt to come back up.  All’s well that ends well.  And the ticker won’t be sneaking around finding excuses to blink or belch from the sodium.  Prepared with no sodium added, this is a no sodium meal.  On the other hand, if you want it to be a 2 gram sodium meal add two grams of salt.
