We’ve been cooking our way through the new Burma Superstar cookbook lately. This week we decided to try out the Sesame Chicken recipe along with the Fermented Tea Leaf Salad. You can buy kits that include almost everything you need to make the salad at Bi-Rite, Whole Foods, The Berkeley Bowl, and Rainbow Grocery. (The kits include a jar of fermented tea leaves and a bag of their amazing crunchy topping, so you can make multiple salads with one kit.)
Hopefully they’ll eventually get the kits online so everyone outside of the Bay Area can take advantage as well. The salad is so delicious and makes the perfect light vegetarian lunch or dinner, or accompaniment to another recipe in the book. Such a great weeknight meal!
