“This makes a great meal for kids, the asparagus spears are fantastic finger food for them to pop their eggs with, they’ll love the potato of course and it’s a good way to introduce a different way to eat a baked potato."
A classic recipe this is easy to make, containing just a few ingredients. Prep in just 20 minutes, this is great for all cooking levels.
"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
