Mapo tofu is a popular Chinese dish which is said to be originated from the Szechuan province. It is a combination of tofu (bean curd) and minced meat, usually pork or beef, in a spicy chilli- and bean-based sauce, typically a thin, oily and bright red suspension. Somehow, the Cantonese have adapted the mapo tofu in our own way and the spiciness is well accepted by most people.
A classic Chinese beef dish. Beef steak is marinated, then stir-fried and simmered with lotus roots and wood ear mushrooms. Serve with freshly cooked white rice.
An easy one bowl dish, cheap and quick to make and full of flavour. Great lunch or TV snack. Serve with mini spring rolls, prawn toast and mini ribs for a more substantial meal if required. My husband loves this and thinks it tastes very authentic.
Quorn fillets make a great, low-fat vegetarian alternative to chicken or meat in a simple stir-fry. Marinate ahead to add flavour, then quickly cook with vitamin-rich vegetables, just before serving. If liked, serve with sesame breadsticks.
This is a highly versatile Chinese stir-fry. You can add any meat or vegetables to this dish. Noodles are tossed with courgettes, leek and spinach in a plum sauce.

This is one of my favourite easy-to-make Indian recipes. Although I try to make it the best as I can, my gran is THE BEST at this... the smell of which reminds me of my school days!

Amazing fresh, easy prawn toast. Now you can make this delicious Chinese dim sum favourite at home.
A wonderful vegetarian version of the sweet and sour meatballs my mother used to make. A more subtle version as my partner is not a big fan of the 'sweet & sour' flavour.
