15 minute chef: beetroot salad

For this dish, use pre-cooked beetroot that's sold vacuum-packed in the produce section. It's ready to eat straight out of the packet, but roasting it for a few minutes intensifies the flavour.

IngredientsSix medium-sized cooked beetroots

Wrapped in fusion for a nourishing snack

What do you get when you cross a chicken burrito with a Vietnamese rice paper roll? This recipe for fragrant wild rice, crisp veggies and poached chicken in a translucent wrapper. Contributed by New Life Restaurant in Shek Kip Mei, it's another example of Hongkongers' penchant for fusion dishes.

Crisp images

I come across most food blogs featured in this column when I do an online search for a dish or ingredient I'm interested in, and that's how I found The Year in Food (theyearinfood.com). I was looking for information on how to make senbei - the thin, crisp Japanese rice crackers flavoured (usually) with soy sauce.
