Phad Thai

This is probably not at all authentic, but it made a nice meal for two and a half people:

about 200g flat rice noodles, prepared according to pack instructions (soak in hot water for ten mins, rinse)
an onion or a few spring onions
100 g tofu, cubed
green, red and yellow peppers, chopped
a little bit of January King cabbage (veg are interchangeable), shredded
chopped fresh ginger
soy sauce
sambal oelek or fresh red chillies to taste
a tsp of brown sugar or jaggery
2 eggs, lightly beaten
lightly toasted peanuts, cashewnuts or sesame seeds

Heat a little oil in a wok. Stir fry the onion(s), ginger, tofu, pepper and cabbage, adding one ingredient after the other, until as done as you like them. Add the noodles. Combine the soy sauce, chillies or sambal oelek and sugar in a bowl, dissolve sugar, pour over everything and mix well. Pour the eggs over and mix until just cooked through. Garnish with nuts and chopped coriander leaves. Mine turned out pretty spicy, but very nice.

Yesterday I made cauliflower with rice and white sauce. Not very original but nice. Just to say that I can do conventional European cuisine as well. I‘d recommend using the cooking liquid of the cauliflower in the sauce. Tasty and healthier, somewhat.
