VEG-PACKED NOODLES Add 1 large sliced carrot and a handful trimmed green beans to the water when the noodles go in. Add 2 heads quartered bok choi when you add the broccoli, then drain everything well and continue the recipe from step 2.


  1. Start by making up the sauce. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Boil the noodles according to pack instructions. A minute before they are ready, tip in broccoli.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok until very hot, then stir-fry the beef for 2-3 mins until well browned. Tip in the sauce, give it a stir, let it simmer for a moment, then turn off the heat. Drain the noodles, stir into the beef and serve straight away, scattered with spring onions.
