Much more gourmet than the special fried rice you may know from takeout joints, this recipe incorporates sautéed Chinese vegetables and fresh ginger. It's delicious as a side dish; alternatively, add leftover cooked chicken or fish to make it a main course.

This isn't a low-sodium recipe — so if that's a concern, consider omitting the teaspoon of salt. It is, however, a delicious dish that you can serve with a whole grain such as couscous, quinoa or barley.

This light and satisfying meal includes chicken breast, cilantro and Napa cabbage, dressed in a tangy combination of fresh ginger, sesame and peanut oils, and a hint of chili. There's some slicing and chopping to do, but otherwise it's an easy dish to pull together.

Shrimp are perfect for stir-frying: They cook quickly and absorb flavors deliciously. Lots of ginger and crunchy snow peas finish this dish, which should be served over steamed rice.
