  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 300g bag crunchy stir-fry vegetables
  • 140g shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 400g can reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 200ml vegetable or fish stock
  • 300g medium straight-to-wok noodles
  • 200g bag large, raw prawns


If you can't find a can of coconut milk, use a block of creamed coconut or a carton of coconut cream, diluted as instructed.


  1. Heat a wok, add the oil, then stir-fry the veg and mushrooms for 2-3 mins. Take out and set aside, then tip the curry paste into the pan and fry for 1 min.

  2. Pour in the coconut milk and stock. Bring to the boil, drop in the noodles and prawns, then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 mins until the prawns are cooked through. Stir in the veg, then serve.
