Nasi Goreng might sound exotic, but foodies this is one of THE BEST dishes for using up all those random odds and ends lurking in the depths of your fridge - especially if you have some leftover cold rice too. The secret weapon here is kecap manis, it's a wonderfully sweet and savoury Indonesian soy sauce that tastes amazing, it's the perfect seasoning for the rice and brings all the flavours together perfectly.
There are times when a comforting bowl of pasta is all that's needed and I cook this regularly because it's so simple and tasty.It's almost a complete 'store cupboard' meal that you can throw together with minimal fuss. Fusilli pasta is my shape of choice for this dish, using a great quality pasta such as our Armando range, makes a noticeable difference.
In a Japanese ramen bar, the menu is divided into three main categories. This recipe is for a 'Shoyu' (soy) ramen - because soy is used to season the broth. The two other types are Miso ramen, which uses miso as the seasoning and Shio ramen that uses salt. Shoyu ramen is the most popular in Japan and there are loads of variations.
Ramen is one of Japan's best loved dishes and with more restaurants serving up this slurpy noodle delight, it's popularity is still on the rise here. Deeply satisfying, umami packed broth with special ramen-style noodles and toppings that add texture, freshness and flavour - this is such a special dish.

Hey! I'm April and I run The Leafy Tea Company, which I started when I was 16 and is nearly 5 years old! I started the business to introduce people to great tasting tea without the hassle of loose leaf and without the dust of 'standard' tea bags. Tea that tastes as good as it smells.
Well well, I appear to have cultivated a cinnamon bun habit...
..& I don’t mind one bit.
We now have a weekly rolling order of 4 cinnamon buns. Fairly often there's only two in the box when we get home though.. Love them with a cup of tea, & as the weather turns we’ve been warming them in the oven - upside down, so that they don’t give up their gooey goodness to the baking tray.
