Weekly eats

A recap of the best recipes I tried this week. Roast chicken, Moroccan harira & chicken soup, Moroccan spaghetti and a super-quick Thai veggie stir-fry.


Cucumber and sesame noodle salad

This noodle salad has a fiery sweet and spicy dressing, but the cucumber and coriander make it strangely refreshing.
