  • 100g rice noodles
  • 1 tsp Marmite
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 50g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 red chilli, sliced (deseeded if you don't like it too hot)
  • ½ bunch mint, leaves picked and stalk discarded

  1. Tip the noodles into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 10 mins, then drain, rinse in cold water and set aside.

  2. In a jug, mix the Marmite with 500ml boiling water. Set aside while you cook the vegetables.

  3. Heat the oil in a saucepan, then add the mushrooms and leek. Cook for 10-15 mins until softened and beginning to colour, then add the soy sauce and Marmite stock and stir. Bring to the boil for 5 mins.

  4. Divide the noodles between two deep bowls, then ladle over the hot broth. Top with the chilli slices, mint leaves and peanuts, and serve with some sriracha on the side.
