Vegetable Noodle Soup

A warming, light noodle soup packed with a variety of crunchy and soft vegetables, topped off with a soft-boiled egg. This dish is definitely a new favourite of mine and is very simple to make. The first time I made it was during winter; evenings were cold and coursework deadlines were nearing fast. After a…

Meat-free: Week 32

After going ‘cold-turkey’ and excluding meat and seafood from my meals in January, I’ve managed to last 32 weeks! I’ve been able to try out foods I’d never usually go for, or eat foods that I thought I hated. Tofu being one of them. Over these months, I’ve learned that I really only miss one…
