Ham with Five-Spice Vegetables is a super-quick entree that is the focus of this Chinese-themed menu. Wonton Soup is always a nice starter, and Carrots Glazed with Asian Ginger Dressing and Almond Rice complete the meal. Keep a bottle of Asian ginger or sesame dressing on hand -- it's a great marinade, dressing, or glaze.
Serve canned soup or cook frozen wontons and add to broth. When cooked, add a handful of shredded iceberg lettuce and sliced green onions.
Cook carrots in boiling salted water. Drain and toss with ginger dressing and brown sugar to taste.
Chop toasted almonds and stir into hot cooked rice.
