Method

  1. Mix the peanut butter, chilli sauce, 100ml water and soy sauce to make a smooth satay sauce. Put the noodles in a bowl and pour boiling water over them. Stir gently to separate, then drain thoroughly.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok, then stir-fry the ginger and harder pieces of veg from the stir-fry mix, such as peppers, for 2 mins. Add the noodles and rest of the veg, then stir-fry over a high heat for 1-2 mins until the veg are just cooked.
  3. Push the veg to one side of the pan, then pour the peanut sauce into the other side, tilting the pan. Bring to the boil. Mix the sauce with the stir-fry, then sprinkle over the basil leaves and peanuts to serve.

Used it as bad for a rare-seared rump steak with chilli, fish sauce and coriander. Excellent.

I also added chicken - delicious, more filling than just veg. Will be making this again!

This is a great recipe, added chicken and didn't bother with peanut topping or basil, still brilliant and a new favourite stir fry is born!

The satay sauce is amazingly good! Made my own stir fry with mushrooms, broccoli, carrot, red pepper and chicken in toasted sesame oil, no ginger and didnt add peanuts, added to cooked noodles for hubby and teenage boys, goes down a treat, light but satisfying!!!!

Great recipe! Quick and tasty from store cupboard ingredients. Next time I will try substituting some of the soy for fish sauce to make it a bit more Thai.

This was really tasty. I added some chicken mini fillets along with the softer veg at the end to warm through and didn't bother sprinkling with peanuts. Nice balance of spice with the peanut butter.

This has just gone top of the list for stirfrys! Didn't add the basil or chopped peanuts, as I didn't have any, but this was still delicious.

This is my ultimate favourite stir fry! Despite how the sauce may look at the start, it really does work out at the end. I use the straight to wok singapore noodles from sainsburys (not sure of the brand), then I use the pack of stir fry veg from sainsburys that has lemon grass, pak choi, baby corn and mange tout and tenderstem brocolli. And thats all I do! (Ok so not quite the recipe described!) The lemon grass with it is perfect and I could eat it every week!

Well, maybe I've done something wrong, but my sauce wasn't more watery, it was more or less in a consistency of peanut butter. Nice, but can't eat too much, so it's pretty good :P

Love this! Have made it a few times now and played with the ingredients a bit, but everyone loves it - especially my teen son!

I made it without the ginger as i didn't have any in the house but it still tasted good, i will try again with the ginger and hopefully it will be even better :-)

Great quick dish. Especially when made with home grown mangetout!

I love this!! So easy, and so quick to make it's fine even when I'm shattered from work. Will try it with chicken next.

Very yummy! I used whole earth peanut butter which is less sweet than something like sunpat so maybe that helped. Very impressed with the satay sauce - a great store cupboard back up and took only a few minutes to make.

This was truly delicious! I've had this 2 times now. The first time I had it with diced turkey because I was wary of how a 100% veggie dish could be filling. It was good, but there was far too much food! The second time I kept to the recipe and it was just right so I'll go with that in the future. One small point is that I cooked dry egg noodles instead of using fresh noodles and I don't think it really made a difference - it was still yummy!
