We're nuts for noodles! They're super quick to make, and can be switched up in endless ways. This version features pork and plenty of veggies - if you have other veggies in your fridge, like cabbage or bell peppers, you can happily chuck them in here as well. Enjoy!


1. Cook the noodles according to the packet, then blanch with cold water.

2. Peel the carrots, rinse the aubergine and cut both into palatable strips. Cut the onion into wedges, split the layers and finely chop the garlic. If you picked up pork chops, cut them into thin strips.

3. Flash fry onion, garlic and pork strips in some olive oil in a wok or deep pan, for about a minute while stirring. Add carrot, aubergine and beans, and let cook for another few minutes over high heat - until the veggies have gotten a bit of a sear, but still have some crunch. Add soy sauce, the juice of the lime, sweet chilli sauce and water. Start with a little bit of chilli sauce, have a taste and add more as needed, if you want a spicier dish.

4. Roast the sesame seeds on a dry pan - pop a lid or some tin foil over the pan, as the seeds can be some boisterous little poppers when they get hot. Let cool on a plate after browning them lightly.

5. Mix the noodles with meat and veggies and serve with roasted sesame seeds on top, and some extra soy sauce and chilli sauce for those who may want it.

6. Enjoy!
