We have our favourite pantry and freezer staples to thank for this crispy, salty, moreish fried rice. Cooked rice, tofu, frozen peas and sesame oil come together to form its delicious base, to which we add ginger, spring onions and pak choy for extra layers of flavour and texture. Hit save to give this a go. Ingredients: 4 spring onions, sliced (or shallots) 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 thumb ginger, finely chopped 3 tbsp neutral oil (such as sunflower, refined coconut or rapeseed) 250g firm tofu, patted dry + crumbled 250g pak choy, chopped into 2cm pieces (or spinach/kale/chard) 600g cooked rice (day old is best, but fresh is ok) 200g peas (frozen or fresh) 2-3 tbsp soy sauce (to taste) 1 tbsp sesame oil 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar 10g basil To top: 1 tbsp sesame seeds 1 spring onion, finely sliced Method: Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan or wok. Add spring onions, garlic and ginger and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add crumbled tofu to the pan, and let cook, untouched for 3-4 minutes. When it’s golden on the heat-facing side, stir and continue to cook untouched for another 3-4 minutes (this is what makes the tofu crispy!). Transfer the tofu into a bowl. Add pak choy to the same pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until wilting and tender. Add to the bowl with tofu. Add remaining 2 tbsp oil to the same pan and add cooked rice. Cook, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes, until the rice starts to crisp. Add peas, soy sauce, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar and stir in. Mix in the cooked tofu, pak choy and basil and cook for another minute. Serve topped with sesame seeds and sliced spring onions.

PASTA STORY | LASAGNE ? If you’ve been to Italy, you’d know that Lasagne is a national treasure ?? This is what my nonna would prepare for Sunday lunch and all the family would join in eating, laughing and keeping an eye on uncle Raimondo’s fast fork… ? One of the most authentic symbols of Italianità, able to combine ancient roots with numerous regional variations ✨ Some of the first signs of lasagne date back to the Romans and in the Middle Ages, where they were muses mentioned in every poet’s song. The Bourbon king Ferdinand II was even called “King Lasagna”, owing to his penchant for the dish! The modern version recipe is disputed between Bologna and Napoli, but this is no place for division. We are here to enjoy the warming unity that Lasagna brings ❤️ Incidentally, you may have noticed: we say “Lasagne” rather than “Lasagna”. This is because, like most other types of pasta, the Italian word is a plural form: Lasagne meaning more than one sheet of Lasagna. However, we are a country of variety and. when referring to the baked dish, we might also call it “Lasagna”. Tag your Italian friend who’ll enjoy this (all Italians lol)? #PastaEvangelists #YourPasta #FreshPasta #FunFact #PastaIsLife #foodlover #eattheworld #londonfoodie #forkyeah #foodgasm #instayum #londonpasta #feedfeed #droolclub #appetitejournal #backtobasics #homedelivery
