    Wendys Kitchen's Note:

    A fantastic recipe from the Times Online (Jill Dupleix). My dd reckons this is the best one! I did however modify it when cooking to include broccoli, carrots, snow peas, vermicilli noodles ..whatever I had on hand instead of the tofu...childrens preference. However I submit the recipe in its original form. VERY IMPORTANT: although the recipe does not call for it I sprinkle chopped nuts and fried noodles on the top as we eat the required added crunch!
