Made this tonight but was a bit disappointed. It was tasty but uninteresting and a little dry. I will try it again but I will double the sauce and use a couple of tablespoons of the boiling water from the noodles. Also I think I will add some garlic and a red chilli.

Great simple and easy recipe! I added freshly chopped chilli at the beginning and par-boiled broccoli towards the end of cooking for a delicious addition!

Lovely. Light and can be done with any vegetables to hand. Just had it with spring onions, sweetcorn, carrot and bamboo shoots. Plus a coriander for green. Easy, quick and satisfying.

Made this a good few times now but never with the bean sprouts, Always comes out nice.

Very tasty. I upped the protein by adding a couple of precooked quorn burgers chopped into bitesized pieces.

I also added chicken to this - fried it in the wok first, then set aside whilst I followed the recipe as listed, then added the cooked chicken back in for the last few mins - delicious

Very nice. I have just had them with barbecued chicken and they were lovely. I just added a little bit more soy sauce and we both enjoyed it and will have it again.
