Total Time
20 Minutes
2 rounded tbsp of smooth peanut butter
1 tbsp of dark soy sauce
1 tbsp of sunflower oil
2cm piece of ginger, grated
Pinch of dried chilli flakes
1 carrot, peeled & thinly sliced
6 sugarsnap peas, sliced lengthways
4 baby corns, roughly chopped
2 x 150g packs of soft noodles (egg-free)
2 spring onions, finely sliced
1 tbsp of roasted & salted peanuts, finely chopped
2 tsp of sesame seeds
Squeeze of juice from an unwaxed lime
Handful of coriander leaves, roughly torn
Step 1

Spoon the peanut butter and soy sauce into a jug or bowl, then pour in 200ml of boiling water. Use a balloon whisk to combine until creamy, then set aside.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a large wok over a high heat, then add the ginger, chilli flakes, carrot, sugarsnaps and baby corns and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add the noodles and stir, then pour in the peanut butter mixture. Stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until the noodles and vegetables are coated and the sauce has thickened.

Step 4

Remove from the heat and scatter with spring onions, chopped peanuts and sesame seeds. Stir in the lime juice and coriander leaves just before serving.

Speedy Tip: Soft noodles are a store cupboard staple, but do make sure they are vegan. Many types found in the chiller section will contain eggs, so look to the ambient aisles for egg-free soft noodles as they are less likely to contain animal ingredients. If you find that the noodles stick together in the pack, simply soak them in a bowl of hot water for a couple of minutes before draining and adding to the wok.
