The ‘straight-to-wok’ packets are really handy, cause you just chuck them in to reheat and your work is done, all in one pan. Peanut butter, chilli bean paste (or sauce, whichever you can find), bouillon powder (or a normal stock cube), cabbage and cooked noodles. One of those magic five ingredient meals that I’m hoping will become much more regular around these parts. I don’t know how available chilli bean sauce is where you are. I can only find it in Chinese supermarkets. If you have one local to you, go check it out. I love this stuff. It’s all fermenty …
