  3. Its so strange that when you say meatless, seafood is acceptable but for us, only veges. I have to do away with all the seafood but add the rest and some veg stock for us. I do noodles for weekends and I sort of have much of the ingredients for tomorrow's meal and at the time I was wondering what to do the noodles, your recipe came on time.

    Please stop tempting me with the chilly dipping sauce as seen in your pics bc its pass 2.30am and that sauce is making my tummy growl.

    1. Yes, seafood not being part of what's considered "meat" during Lent makes it a lot easier for us. :)

  4. This is so wonderfully comforting looking :D
    By removing the seafood and adding tonnes of veges, this could well become my favourite dinner :)

  7. What a pretty dish- I love all the textures and colors. Some of the seafood I have not heard of or seen in my regular grocers= would have to go probably to an Asian store, but I would love to try this with what seafood I have on hand. Have a great weekend!
