Sometimes we baulk at trying recipes we think the family might not like. But I can say from experience, you can be seriously surprised by what even fussy eaters will try. The udon noodle recipe is one such dish – and super simple to prepare. Look for the noodles in the Asian section of your supermarket. This week we are doubling the chilli con carne and the mango chicken. Start to incorporate the food banked meals from your freezer into your weekly meal plan to reduce your cooking load to only 4 meals a week plus some sides.
