  1. I have been almost two months without a computer, and therefore, all that time without any new Wil Yeung recipes to try. It's been a period of very serious withdrawals. I used the time to make a few favorite Wil Yeung recipes and canned a year's supply of Wil's famous chili oil. If you leave it with the spices in, it just gets better with time. I'm trying to decide if I want to drizzle a little of that chili oil over the soup, or if I'd rather drizzle a little of the soup over the oil. So that I will be able to still fit into my clothes, it would probably be best to drizzle the oil over the soup. You can bet that I'll be licking the spoon though. Seriously folks, if you haven't tried his chili oil, you really do need to make some. It's super easy to do, and it's infinitely better than anything you can buy in a store.
    I see I have missed out on some seriously good recipes in my absence, and somehow, I'll have to find time and some tummy space to catch up Hong Kong curry and chow mein has my mouth watering, Most of the others do too, and though I'm not a beginner, who can turn their nose up at a recipe that takes only 15 mi minutes to make? I've stood in line for take-out longer than that.
    The current offering looks fabulous too, and the only question is going t be, what to make first? I'll probably do this one first so that I can review it before it becomes too much like past-tense.
    There is some good news about the computer situation, and it's that I managed to put aside a bit more money than I ended up spending on the new machine. I will therefore have a bit of spare change which I can spend to buy my long desired copies of Wil's cookbooks. It will be a doubly good thing, because the next time I have a computer give up on me, I'll be able to refer to the cookbook for new Wil Yeung recipes! Keep your eyes open Wil. I'll be buying signed copies!

  2. I’ve been watching your videos for a while and I really love the content and recipes. I worked in broadcast television for about a decade, and I’m just really not a fan of your overblown whites, almost as if there is no white balance. It’s to the extreme that sometimes your camera has a problem autofocusing which is also an issue in certain shots. Your content would be rejected for air if it was going through a professional eval.

    I’d say you might want to reconsider your filming style to dial back the whites/lighting a bit to make them less harsh and blown out, and to also allow your camera to better focus.

    Just trying to provide some constructive criticism.

  3. I just made this today but with a nutritarian twist. (Dr Joel Furhman). So no salt, oil or potatoes. I puréed a large parsnip with the onion and 1/3 cup of cashews with about 1/3 of the pea soup. Then added that back in with the carrots, celery, garlic and tomatoes.
    Followed all of the rest for spices and ingredients.
    For the chickpeas I also omitted the oil and salt. Instead I just seasoned them with Garam Marsala. It all came out amazing!
    Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. 🤤 🍲
