Spicy Peanut Cabbage Noodles

Spicy peanut cabbage noodles is a simple, comforting dish that I’ve turned to a few times throughout Veganuary. It’s almost definitely an accidental bastardisation of something that already exists. If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say that Bouillon powder probably doesn’t feature heavily in Asian cooking. I use udon noodles here, but it’d be just as great with egg noodles, or flat rice noodles, or whichever noodles you happen to have to hand. 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 …

Spicy Sriracha Fish Noodles

It’s starting to feel like Summer’s on its way out. The light isn’t lasting quite as long every evening and the temperature is slowly creeping downwards – so what better way to whack it back up than with insanely spicy suppers. My first class foodie godparents got us this Sriracha Kaffir Lime Rub and up until this evening I’ve not known quite what to do with it. I’m usually all for making this kind of stuff yourself but let’s face it, it’s a Tuesday and I’m hungry and I’ve been at work all day. Plus, the flavours in this little tin will blow your socks off – if you can get your hands on some, do. If you’re not a fan of spicy food (I’m talking to you Grandad) then this recipe is not for you, however if the very title of this recipe had you interested (I’m talking to you chilli geeks) then please, read on. Serves 2 2 fillets of white fish (I used river cobbler, cheap/cheerful/sustainable) 200g fine green beans (remember to top …

Packed Peanut Noodles

Mornings suck, and trying to get my life together in time to pack some lunch before work is not always a realistic goal for me. Noodles are amazing, their speed and superiority have made this meal a staple throughout the working week. It takes literally 10 minutes from start to finish and can be knocked up after you’ve had your tea and sit in the fridge over night. If you are making it the night before, you might want to drizzle a little bit of extra oil in there in the morning just to spruce it up a bit – I usually forget and don’t mind them on the dry side but I know there are some fussy types in this world. Serves 2 (or one hungry lunch-breaker) 2 nests egg noodles 4 or 5 spring onions 2 tbsps sesame oil 1 tsp soy sauce 1 tbsp peanut butter 1 tsp honey Cook your noodles according to pack instructions (mine called for 3 minutes in boiling water, some don’t even need to be boiled they …
