If you thought Haiku products could only be used to make authentic Asian food, then you thought wrong! Our premium products are touted for their versatility and can easily be incorporated into recipes from all around the globe. Here are a few ideas sure to give you and your taste buds the travel bug!
Mexican cuisineMade with coconut milk and lemongrass, our Tom Kha soup makes a great base for Mexican soups like our delicious red bean and corn Tex-Mex soup. Stir some of our minced cilantro into sour cream for a mouth watering topping for tacos, quesadillas or nachos.
Italian cuisineRisotto and mushrooms are a match made in paradiso! The next time you make this Italian classic, try swapping out white mushrooms for our canned shiitake mushrooms. Love pork cutlets parmigiana? Level up by replacing regular breadcrumbs with our panko breadcrumbs! And if you’re in the mood to put a fresh twist on traditional pasta dishes and still have dinner on the table in no time flat, look no further than our Asian noodles or rice noodles.
French cuisineRoasted meat dishes—a rack of pork, for instance—are a perennial hit with guests. But if you want to mix things up a bit, add a splash of coconut milk to your recipe for a subtle Asian touch, or liven up your roast with a few lovely asparagus fries on the side!
Indian cuisineCoconut milk is a staple of Indian cuisine. Add a can of our regular or light coconut milk to your Indian curry or butter chicken to give your dish a creamy texture and an exquisite Indian flavour.
American cuisineHaving friends over to hang out or watch the football game? For an Asian twist on classic US bar food, swap out the ground beef in your burgers for our canned shiitake mushrooms or take our crispy coconut chicken fingers for a spin! Oh, and the crowd will go wild for our zucchini fries!
Quebec cuisineQuebecers long ago adopted Chinese fondue as a favourite meal to share with loved ones. Throw everyone for a loop by whipping up a fondue broth with lemongrass and coconut milk and serving konjac rice as a side! And why not keep the surprises coming by bringing out a coconut milk pouding chômeur for dessert?
