Cooking with Helga!

Darlings, we are cooking noodles with spicey tofu and vegetables!






I love these noodles, and could happily scoff them all own their ownsome!


But with some tasty additions, even better. I'm adding some chopped garlic and ginger...indispensible!





Bustle bustle, cooking the noodles...



It wouldn't be cooking with Helga without a glass of vino now, would it dearhearts?!


Get one down your gullet, and pour a fresh one! Better still, get some hunky man ( or whomever takes your fancy) to top up your glass!



O, yes, that's lovely!




My other scrummy ingredients-


Sweet chilli sauce, a stock cube, soy sauce and red curry paste for flavouring.


Fresh chopped chilli (mouth watering), green beans, celery (sorry Vix), green pepper (or capsicum, depends on where you're from!) and some fresh chopped coriander.


O, fresh coriander!! Or cilantro, if you are American. O, how I wish someone would make a perfume oil from it! Sniffity sniff!


Whoops, I forgot some spring onions!


Sorry, chaps.



Toss the lots into a hot wok, and toss frequently over reasonable heat for a few minutes.




Serve in a lovely non-patterned bowl.(!)


With the chopped coriander sprinkled over top!


Delish!


And ever so virtuous, just like moi!

I've got a glass of vino right next to me so cheers, darling!
Thanks for the plain plate, so kind but shame about that vile celery, I suppose i could pick it out if I had to.
Your frock looks divine and I adore that action shot of you scurrying around the kitchen.
I'll be in tofu heaven this time next week.
Love you,
Vix

Dear Helga,
that looks yummy!
I've been meaning to pop down to China Town to get some family size bags of that spicy tofu as it is so much cheaper than in the supermarkets around here & they don’t do big bags only insubstantial portion packs.
Tofu is so brilliantly versatile, tasty & inexpensive.
Funnily enough it wasn't until I became vegan that I started loving tofu, I was more of a soya chunks girl as a vegetarian but the more restricted diet of veganism pushed me to be more imaginative with food & introduce things to my diet that I had previously disregarded.
I love your ‘Keith Floyd’ approach to cooking & the fact that you look so totally laid-back in the kitchen.
I think that if some brave soul attempted to take a photo of me whilst in the throes of cooking up a storm, they’d probably receive a good old clobbering with a wooden spoonage, I do get a bit frazzled when I’m slaving over a hot wok it has to be said ;)
Lot’s of love,
Jem

Yum. I love firm tofu, so delicious. People who think they don't like tofu just haven't been eating the right stuff. x

Love the blurry motion shot in the kitchen. I think you need your own t.v show! I've just goy in from work and am making do with a crisp sandwich x

Miss Claire said...

Mmmmm!! Mouth watering! Yum yum. It's breakfast time, and I want this now. When i get my ass over to New Zealand in the next few years some time, perhaps you can make this for me?!

Dear Helga, I'm loving your cooking style. That looks delicious too!

Thank you so much for your brilliant comments, how fabulous that we like so many of the same things! I loved reading your comment earlier it really made me laugh. Don't be fooled about the name of my blog, I never write about fashion and never pay full price for any of my clothes. We have the same taste in art and isn't Siouxsie brilliant? And those green glitter shoes, I wish I could find them.

Have an amazing evening xx

Delish!! The stirfry, the wine and the Fancy Lady!! I always enjoy your cooking posts; and cilantro = YUM! I don't understand how some folks don't like it...

Mrs Munster said...

I would love to come and dine with Helga :) Your kitchen looks so cozy. Me and my hubby seem to slowly be turning into vegetarians. We are still eating chicken but using loads of meat free mince. Do you ever marinade tofu yourself? Having trouble to find larger amounts of ready marinated tofu in grocery stores here.

Alex said...

Mmmmmm! That looks and sounds absolutely delish. May I invite myself round for dinner please? I'll keep the wine topped up.

Love the food and the dress! Noodles are my all-time favourite, can't wait to try this variation.

He he I also notice your current read has my name on it. It's nice to be famous (makes a change from infamous)...

Ivy Black said...

Yummy! I love a bit of tofu...the rest of my family think it's the work of the devil.
It's a pity all us bloggers can't get together for a massive nosh up...never mind, virtual will do.xxx

The dish look great but most that all I like that you have windows in your kitchen. How sunny it is. I wish, I have at least one window in my kitchen.

Saludos,
