Recipe | Vietnamese Tofu in Tomato sauce

Quick super easy healthy tofu in tomato sauce recipe for the family. This recipe serves a family of 4. Suitable for Vegans. 

400g of fresh tofu in water
4/5 tomatoes
2 spring onions 
A pinch of salt
2 tbsp of fish sauce
1 tbsp of chicken stock 

1. Slice the tofu into even rectangular chucks - you should be able to get around 18-20 slices. 
2. Dry the tofu with a kitchen paper towel, before frying them in a pan for about 15mins until a golden brown.
3. Whilst waiting for the tofu to cook, slice out the tomatoes into medium size chucks
4. Sauté the tomatoes into a pan with a little water to soften 
5. Once the tomatoes have softened, add in the cooked tofu and stir for another 2mins.
6. Chop up the spring onions diagonally and add to the dish a few mins before serving.  

Make sure you blot water from the tofu off otherwise it'll take longer to cook.

Look at the crispy goodness! YUM! 

You don't want the sliced tomatoes to be too small or to big, slice them up just right. :)

Review | Lebanese Mix

Review | Lebanese Mix 

Camberwell and south-east London is on the rise with pop-up trendy hipster places. Like the bussey building, Franks bar with an amazing view of the city and The bar story. Bringing the night life a new meaning to the south of the river. Alot of new food places have opened as well which has given us more variety on the type of food to try out. If you're looking for a place which is halal, and the food is to die for, look no further than the Lebanese Mix. 

The Mix grill
A friend and I tend to go for the grills and fresh juices when we come here, the staff are really friendly and always offer you a sweet free dessert afterwards. I think its called baklava although I always tend to mispronounce it as balaclava.  

The lamb grill <3 
I mean look at this, who wouldn't want to give this a try. I'm salivating right now thinking about returning here. 

4/5 Happy Dumpling Rating

Travels | Barcelona

~ Travels | Barcelona ~  

Beautiful beaches, churches and baguettes. So the family and I went on a little trip to Barcelona to celebrate my brother's masters graduation. Apart from having the opportunity to practice my Spanish, over the 4 days we admired the beautiful city and most importantly, we ate a lots and it was goooooood.

They really love their food in Spain, it's home to gigantic Jamon, seafood and sangria. Everything was flourishing, and you can tell that the people really enjoy the laid back and relaxing life style we crave.
