  • 150g fine rice noodles

  • Two tablespoons of sunflower oil

  • 2cm knob of fresh root ginger - peeled and finely chopped or grated

  • 200g pak choi - white and green parts separated and finely shredded

  • One tablespoon of soy sauce

  • Juice of one small lemon

  • One teaspoon of caster sugar

  • One teaspoon of sesame oil


  1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then drain and refresh under cold water. Drain well once again. Set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the ginger, red pepper and carrot, frying over a high heat for around three minutes.

  3. Tip in the white parts of the pak choi and fry for one minute. Add the drained noodles, lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil and toss until all is heated through and combined.

  4. Use two spatulas to help toss all of this together and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Finally, add the green parts of the pak choi and toss until just wilted. Serve in a large, warmed bowl.
