Recipe of the Week: Chow Mein

Vegetable Chow Mein

Chow Mein

 

This recipe only takes 15 minutes to create and requires minimal prep, so you can treat yourself to a tasty ‘take-away’ at home.

The classic combination of crunchy vegetables, tender noodles and egg works perfectly.

 

RECIPE

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Chow mein are Chinese stir-fried noodles with vegetables and sometimes meat or tofu; the name is a romanisation of the Taishanese chāu-mèn.

The dish is popular throughout the Chinese diaspora and appears on the menus of most Chinese restaurants abroad.

It is particularly popular in India, Nepal, the UK and the US.

Different regions cooked Chow Mein differently, the chefs in Hong Kong fried the noodles crispy, while the other regions opposite of Hong Kong steamed the noodles, all the while all Chinese chefs used a hot wok to cook the finished product.

What Can You Freeze? Plus 3 ‘Eat & Freeze” Recipes

How to freeze food

What Can You Freeze?

 

As we need to minimise the number of times that we go out to shop, cooking several meals at once (or batch cooking) is a really good idea.

You can also freeze many ingredients to extend their shelf life.

See our useful freezing guide here.

Marvellous (and Easy!) Mothering Sunday Menu

Mother's Day Menu

Every year I have the romantic vision of a Mother’s Day walk in the spring sunshine

 

This would be followed by a civilised lunch or afternoon tea enjoying ‘mum’ time with my own mum and my children.

The reality is always monsoon-like weather that almost blows us off a hill/into the sea/over a cliff followed by a long queue for a table in a restaurant whilst looking like drowned rats and the children cry/argue/moan because they’re freezing cold and bored.

Obviously, this year things have to be a lot different and I will have to make-do with a phone call to my mum.

With my children, we plan to cook at home together. I’ve chosen an easy and accessible menu that they can follow and that we can enjoy together stress-free. All recipes come from the Around Britain cookbook (look out for the special offer code on this!)

 

 

 

Mothering Sunday Menu

 

Parsnip & Apple Soup

Starter

This creamy soup originates from East Anglia, where root crops thrive in the fertile soil. The sweet and velvety texture of parsnip combines wonderfully with a hint of tart cooking apple.

Teviotdale Pie

Main

Teviotdale is a valley in the Scottish borders, whose principal town is Hawick. This border country has a turbulent history, and saw numerous clashes between Scots and English. This tasty pie from the region is a great recipe for making a little meat go a long way.

Knickerbocker Glory

Dessert

This ice cream extravaganza originated in New York and was named after its original Dutch settlers, the ‘Knickerbockers’. However, its popularity here in Britain is due to an Italian named Pacitto, who opened an ice cream parlour in Redcar where he introduced the Knickerbocker Glory to the British.
