The other day Mr Girlfriend and I had a long and super interesting conversation with our two eldest boys regarding the subject of open-mindedness.
I love listening to my kids ideas.
I love how they articulate their thoughts.
We haven't turned on the TV in weeks.
It is not missed.
Our 12yo in amongst the conversation talked of how he thinks as we get older we get less open minded and more dogmatic in our beliefs.
He went on to say that kids seem to be more curious and wanted to find out different ways whereas older people didn't and tended to just believe one thing.
I think I agree with him.
We showed him this video- an old favourite of mine and Mr Girlfriend. It is really worth watching.
GOURMET GIRLFRIEND'S SUPER QUICK 5 minute VEGO SOBA NOODLES:
I could totally live on Noodles alone.
This is a super quick & super yum dish that is great for a quick lunch or an equally delish dinner.
It is yummy hot or served cold as a salad.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- soba noodles ( I tend to always have dried soba in the pantry just in case of a Noodle emergency!)
- 1 carrot, julienned fine
- 2 cloves garlic
- 100g sliced wombok cabbage (normal cabbage will do- or any other greens you like!)
- 200 g firm tofu
- 1 inch ginger, julienned fine
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- spring onion, sliced fine
- handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped
- black sesame seeds
- chilli (optional)
Prepare Soba noodles as per packet. (while the soba are cooking you can do the frying bit and the noodles should be ready to mix in)
Add the sesame oil to a non stick fry pan on medium heat.
Fry the carrots, wombok, garlic and ginger.
Once just wilted add tofu and take off the heat.
Drain noodles and add to stir fry mix.
Mix well and add the spring onion and coriander (and chilli if using).
Serve into bowls and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
