This is a recipe that put me off when I first saw it until I decided to give it a try!

Unfortunately all the recipes I found on the internet basically ALL use the SAME recipe as if it’s the perfect ratio… but when I tried it out, I actually needed to adapt it a bit…
So this is my adapted version of this special chocolate mousse.

But I have to say, even though it isn’t as airy as the normal chocolate mousse, it’s certainly very yummy!
It tastes like a dense chocolate mousse that you can either enjoy on its own or with some fruits.

Ingredients:

1 ripe avocado
5 sachets of sweetener
1/4 cup soy milk (or any type or milk)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
a pinch of salt

Method:

  1. Mash the avocado in a bowel
  2. Mix everything together
  3. Place the mixture in the blender and blend it well
  4. Serve with fruits

Hope you enjoy it!

I have had people asking me how to make ChowMein (chinese fried noodles) and telling me that the noodles they make just doesn’t taste as nice as the once they buy from a restaurant.

The chow mein from the Chinese shops can be too oily and salty, with a lot of MSG in it…
Why not make your own with this easy, under budget and delicious recipe?

I used spaghetti for this recipe because I like the chewy noodles, you can use chinese egg noodles too.

Ingredients:

3-4 portions of spaghetti, boiled till half cooked
1 table spoon of oil
1 onion, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
5 baby marrows, sliced
5 mushrooms, sliced
2 big chicken breasts, sliced (I added a bit of left over steak)
3/4 cup of low sodium kikkoman soy sauce (please don’t use other soy sauce unless it’s from a chinese store)
1/4 cup of pasta water
1 table spoon of sweet chilli sauce

Method:

  1. In the frying pan, or a wok, heat up oil and fry onions over medium heat.
  2. Add chicken and cook it until it’s done.
  3. Add the vegetables and fry for 2 mins.
  4. Add the noodles and mix well.
  5. Mix the soy sauce, water and sweet chilli sauce in a bowl.
  6.  Pour the sauce mixture into the pan.
  7. Turn the heat down and put the lid on, cook for 2 mins.
  8. Open the lid and stir well until the top part of the noodles is in the sauce.
  9. Cook until the vegetables are soft and noodles have the flavour.
  10. Serve.

Pilchard is a good source of omega 3 and calcium. Omega 3 has anti-inflammatory properties, and calcium is important for your bones and teeth health.

I made this recipe and it was really yummy. If you feel for fish, this economical meal would be one of the best options!

P.S Pilchard is high in Purine, therefore should be avoided if you suffer from gout. 🙂
