notes

  • I don’t usually measure my vegetables out, which is why I have said a ‘bowl of mushrooms’ - this would most likely be one packet of mushrooms. But I just throw in however many I like!

  • Use whatever vegetables are your favourites, as this dish would taste great with peppers, aubergine, spinach, pak choi and lots of other vegetables!

  • I used dry wholewheat noodles, but other noodles like rice noodles or even instant noodles would work really well too. You just need to make sure they’re covered with enough liquid to cook.
