I used the spicy variation of the recipe, substituting black sesame seeds for white ones to give the dish a little more contrast.

After making dua gia, I decided I wanted a pickle with a little more spice, and a bit of cucumber and daikon as well. This is similar to the previous recipe, except that I added some powdered chilli to the mixture.
I made fresh spring rolls with lettuce, mint, basil, bean sprouts, corn, carrot, sweet pepper, cucumber and blanched snow peas wrapped in rice paper.
To accompany it I made a sauce of peanuts, coconut, olive oil, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, garlic, lime, lemon juice, maple sugar, salt and shallot.
To fend off cold, I made a soup with a base of ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. After boiling it for a few minutes, I removed the ginger and garlic. I added snow peas and carrot, then, after three minutes, sweet pepper, soba noodles and Brussels sprouts. After two minutes I added bean sprouts and let them cook for one minute before adding spring onions and serving the soup.
I served this with a side of smashed cucumber salad.
