Golden Noodle Cake with Prawns and Bok Choy
I was watching Chef Ming Tsai this morning and he and his Mother made a delicious Noodle Cake.
Brought back to mind a recipe that I posted quite some time ago have a look here
I also was reading Ruth Daniel's Presto Pasta Night site and was also inspired by a blog from The Beet Reporter .
So 3 recipes to inspire me. I think this should go in this weeks Presto Pasta Night
I have decided this winter, instead of just eating everything wonderful, not caring about calories, just eat everything I love... I would put a bit of thought into how fattening my food is.
I have found a great App on the Ipad called My Net Diary and when you make a project out of your eating habits...its great fun to know how much you actually can eat. without going over the top.
So of course Asian Food is generally healthy and reasonably Lo Cal
My portion of the lunch, netted 470 cals.
If you want to make this Gluten Free, use Rice noodles and Tamari Soy Sauce.
So to get this delicious lunch for two people you will need
200 gm pkt of Udon Noodles
2 tsps rice bran oil
300 gms raw prawns peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
Zest and juice of a lime (2 tablespoons)

and back into the oven for 6 minutes
