Vietnamese Food Recipes

Vietnamese food may well be the most healthful in Southeast Asia. Astonishing amounts of freshly picked leaves, herbs, vegetables and roots are eaten at every meal, every day. Using only the leanest of meat, the Vietnamese cook with a minimal amount of oil. Spicy Vietnamese dishes are a little less fiery than the chili-laced dishes of Thailand, though both countries favor fermented fish sauce, and identical varieties of chili peppers. Vietnamese food has a skillful blending of unusual flavors which creates a cuisine that is packed with flavor, yet with a delicacy of taste that is unique. A different emphasis on the use of basic ingredients is apparent in the Vietnamese scant use of cooking oil and thickeners, such as cornstarch.

Vietnamese prefer to eat vegetables raw; shallots, are relied on heavily in Vietnamese cuisine as a base for cooked dishes as well as for garnishing; and soy sauce, ubiquitous is scarcely to be found. The Vietnamese preference for nuoc mam (fermented fish sauce) is well known, and once having tasted their food, nobody could mistake it for Chinese. Favorite herbs in Vietnamese cooking are cilantro, basil, dill, and many kinds of fresh mint. Seasonings in daily use include chilies, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, galangal, shrimp paste, turmeric, tamarind and lime juice.

Mint - Varieties of mint feature in the cooking of Vietnam. The fresh flavor combines particularly well with coriander leaf, peanuts and the zest of mandarin orange. Mint is also used in sweet and savory fruit salads.
