Long-life Noodles

This is my take on New Year noodles, they are absolutely delicious and very easy to make. In fact they are so tasty they are a regular quick meal for me! There are many varieties of noodles to choose from, and really you can you use any you like here, but I prefer the thinner ones, which cook very quickly. Serves 4 250g noodles 1 tbsp sunflower oil 250g prawns, shelled and deveined head Chinese cabbage, finely shredded 2 garlic cloves, finely minced 2 carrots, finely sliced 1 thumb-sized piece ginger, finely sliced 1 tbsp dark soy sauce 1 tbsp rice wine 1 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp chilli oil 2 tbsps sesame seeds, toasted 3 spring onions, finely sliced Small handful coriander Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, drain and rinse with a little cold water. Set aside. Heat the wok over a high heat with a little sunflower oil and add the prawns, cooking very briefly for about one minute each side. Remove from the wok and set aside. Put the wok back over a high heat, add a little sunflower oil and stir-fry the ginger and garlic for about 30 seconds. Add the carrots, Chinese cabbage, soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil and chilli oil. Stir-fry until the carrots are tender but still have a bit of crunch. Add the noodles and prawns and toss to combine. Serve straight away with a generous sprinkle of sesame seeds, sliced spring onions and coriander leaves.

It's low in calories, has immune system boosting properties and contains omega-3 essential fatty acids which the body does not naturally produce. If you have any leftovers, this tasty sauce can also be used tossed through a crunchy Asian salad.
