Spicy Veggie Noodle Bowl

Serves: 2
Cooking: 35M
Total time: 35M


150g noodles (I use brown rice noodles)
300g tofu, drained
40g mange tout
1 courgette, chopped
1 fresh red chilli, chopped
Handful of beans sprouts, about 30g
Handful of roasted cashews, about 40g
Handful of chopped coriander, about 30g
For the dressing
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 teaspoon of tamari
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Pinch of salt

Start by draining your tofu. Once the water is drained, place a paper towel over the top and leave something heavy on it for 20 minutes to press out any excess liquid.

Once dry, place a pan with a drizzle of olive oil on a hob to warm up, cut your tofu and courgette into small pieces and place in the warm frying pan – sautée, untouched, over a medium heat for 10 minutes, before turning and finishing on the other side for 3-4 minutes.

Cook your noodles in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, adding your mange tout in the last minute or two. Once cooked, drain and mix together with the red chilli, bean sprouts, chopped coriander, tofu and courgette.
Then make your dressing by mixing together all of the ingredients – drizzle over the noodles and give it all a good mix together. Top with more fresh chilli and roast cashews and enjoy!

How To Make Sambusa

somali sambusa 001

After many requests, here is the english version of “how to make sambusa” for those who dont understand Swahili. Enjoy!!!

– Minced beef 1kg
– Spring roll sheets (spring roll pastry) – you can buy them at the African shops, Chinese supermarket).
– Spices (2tsp of tumeric powder, 2tbsp of paprika powder, 1tbsp of ginger powder, 2-3 tbsp of curry powder, 2-3 tbsp of beef flavour broth): I love spices (I never measure) + I do not use salt 😊
– 2tbsp Garlic paste
– 2 large onions: cut into small thin pieces
– 1 bell pepper: same
– Half bag of grated carrots
– 2-3 lemons: squeeze
– Frying oil
– Flour for folding
– Coriander / parsley

Lets do this 😉
– Remove the spring roll sheets from the freezer on time (I usually take them out the night before and put them in the fridge. Then they will be defrosted the next day).
– Put the minced meat, herbs, lemon juice + garlic in a large pan. Bring this to boil
– Meanwhile, cut the onions, bell pepper and coriander / parsley.
– Clean the pieces of onions, peppers, carrots and coriander / parsley.
– Don’t forget your minced meat, stir occasionally.
– When the minced meat is cooked, put the onions + bell pepper + carrots + coriander / parsley, stir well … and let it cook for 5-8 minutes.
– Taste whether there is enough seasoning / salt. If not, add a little. I usually add cubes of broth and curry powder.
– Let the meat boil, must be dry, otherwise they will leak.
– If the meat is cooked and well, turn off the fire. Let it cool off.
– Put 5-6 scoops of flour in a bowl and add water. Stir well, it should not be too thick or thin. This is your “glue”.
– Next step = folding  YouTube link. It is a bit difficult to explain Hahaha

– Fold, fill with minced meat & fold up.
– Fry your sambusa…… Ready to eat. Enjoy 😉

Ps: You dont have to fry them all, you can keep them in the freezer.


These are the spices I used.

I make my own garlic paste. You can grate the carrots yourself, but I prefer buying the ones that are already done.


Some people use eggs for folding. I use flour.
