Ginger Glazed Chicken

 2 pounds chicken thighs, skin on, bone in

1 pound carrots, chopped into 1 inch pieces

2 large yellow onions, 1 inch slices

1 large bell pepper, 1 inch slices

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 T coconut oil

1/4 cup ginger syrup

1 T sesame seeds

Salt & pepper to taste

(1/2 t red pepper flakes, if desired)


1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Lime wedges

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients (except garnish) together and season well with salt and pepper.  In a sauté pan, roasting pan or cast iron pan coated lightly with oil on medium-high heat,  sear the chicken thighs first, skin side down until brown then flip and continue cooking until brown, about 6-8 minutes total.

Remove the chicken and add the rest of the bowl to the pan.  Sauté for 5 minutes then top with chicken, skin side up.  Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and veggies are cooked thru.  Serve family-style on platter with rice (or preferred grain).


Ginger Orange Pork Chops

 2 pork chops

2 tablespoons ginger syrup

1 tablespoon orange juice

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon salt, pepper to taste

This recipe is great on the grill, but broiling is also very tasty.  Mix together all ingredients and coat pork chops.  Leave in refrigerator to marinate at least 30 minutes, but let the chops sit out at room temperature for a few minutes before cooking.  Preheat broiler, place chops in oven for 5-7 minutes, flip over and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.  Let rest 3 minutes before serving.


Ginger Glazed Hakurei Turnips, Parsnips, or Carrots

 1 pound of hakurei turnips, parsnips, or carrots (or a mix)

1/2 tablespoons salt

1 teaspoons pepper

2 tablespoons ginger syrup

2 tablespoons fat (olive oil, butter, coconut oil, lard, etc. - pick your favorite)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Chop veggies into roughly 1 inch pieces.  Combine all ingredients and place in a single layer in a roasting pan or cast iron skillet.  Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized. 


Sautéed Ginger-Soy Cabbage

 1/2 lb bok choy, savoy, or napa cabbage, chopped to thin ribbons

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

2-3 scallions, chopped

1 tablespoons ginger syrup

1 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari

2 teaspoons sesame oil


Combine scallions, soy sauce, and ginger syrup in a small bowl. Heat skillet or wok to medium high heat and coat with sesame oil.  Add cabbage and garlic to pan and toss for 2 minutes. Add ginger-soy-scallion mixture and continue to mix for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and serve immediately.


Sesame Ginger Salad Dressing

 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (black sesame seeds are a beautiful color contrast)

2 tablespoons ginger syrup

2 tablespoons soy sauce  or tamari

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 scallion, finely chopped

Juice of 1/2 a lime

1/3 cup neutral oil (olive, grapeseed, etc.)

2 teaspoons sesame oil
