Spicy Buckwheat Noodles with Tofu

Trying to keep a healthy diet is hard, especially if the canteen at work or college tempts you with its smell of greasy chips or fried chicken. (don’t get me started on the chocolate and crisps at the counter!) In this situation, you have to be strong! Its super hard though, I totally understand. So how do we shatter these temptations and ward off those cheeky chips cravings? Simple, fast and healthy food that is whipped up in no time at home and is chok-a-blok full of taste, that’s how! Here is one of my favourite packed lunches, a Buckwheat noodle based cold dish. It is super healthy and delicious. It will make your colleagues a little envious!

Curried Chicken Spring Rolls with Pineapple Salsa

From: Neven Maguire: Home Chef

A real family favourite on our lunch menu, I make this every Christmas for the family and my brother Karlous has been known to eat two or three of them. If you would prefer to cook these in the oven, simply preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush the tops and sides of spring rolls with egg wash and simply arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes until crisp and golden.

Jewelled Chinese 5 Spice Duck Salad

One of my favourite recipes for entertaining, this salad looks fabulous for Christmas with ruby red pomegranate jewels and juicy mango. The ish ingredient is Chinese 5 Spice which is an aromatic blend of spices that marries perfectly with luxurious duck breasts. Toasted sesame oil, another ish factor, and plenty of fresh lime, finishes off this very special sensational salad.
