A classic Chinese takeaway appetiser, it's surprisingly easy to make your own prawn toast at home.

Our beef and black bean stir-fry takes just 15 mins to make - quicker than waiting for a takeaway! With plenty of fresh veg and a hint of chilli, these saucy noodles are a real crowdpleaser.

Vegan spring rolls

Packed with beansprouts, red pepper, green beans, ginger and water chestnuts, these homemade spring rolls are crisp on the outside and perfectly seasoned on the inside. They're also dairy and egg-free, and accidentally vegan! Serve with soy sauce for dipping and you're onto a winner.

pork and noodle stir-fry

These colourful noodles with tender pork and a punchy garlic and soy dressing are oh-so satisfying. Serve with fresh lime to squeeze over and coriander leaves to garnish to take this speedy stir-fry to the next level.

Vegans and vegetarians don't have to miss out on the fun, either. With egg noodles and egg-fried rice, ordering a takeaway can be tricky for vegans - but our vegan kung pao cauliflower packs all of those takeaway flavours while remaining 100% plant-based!

Crispy, sriracha-spiced cauliflower florets are served with a delicious, sticky sauce and veggie-fried rice. Meat-eaters and veggies alike will go crazy for this tasty recipe.
