Easy Bun Cha Recipe

Easy Bun Cha Recipe @ Strayed from the Table

I am really lucky, Roy has been cooking up a storm since Isla has come into our home and I we have eaten Bun Cha pretty much each time he comes home. I am loving it. Fresh salad, meat, noodles and delicious dipping sauce. I can’t complain, way better than my meat and three veg dinners which can get a little tired some times.

Nothing beats fresh tasting food and to make it even tastier is when someone else cooks for you. I blessed to have a hubby who loves to cook and to try new dishes. This one is winner and I will keep asking for it. Roy seems to think it doesn’t take too long to make either so here is his recipe for easy bun cha.

Does your hubby cook for you and if so what does he cook?

  1. That looks delicious and even better you have a happy husband to cook it. Makes life a little bit easier in those early baby days. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane

  2. We were just talking about what to make for dinner, think I may get Justin to make these. Will just opt out of the garlic and chili. I am allergic to garlic and Jarvis doesn’t like chili. Will let you know how they turn out.

    Looks soooo yummy. We love to eat that kind of thing in summer. Some prawn meat mixed in would probably go great in there too!

  4. Great recipe! I’ve had this at restaurants, but never made it at home. I need to — so good, and sooo easy! The perfect combo. 😉

  5. These look amazing! I’ve been a bit stuck for ideas recently, so I’m going to print this recipe off! Thanks!

  6. Aww you’re lucky to have Roy in your life, but I reckon he’s even luckier to have you 🙂
