Method

  1. Put the stock cube into a pan of water, then bring to the boil. Add the noodles, bring the stock back to the boil and cook for 2 mins. Add the broccoli and boil for 2 mins more. Reserve a cup of the stock, then drain the noodles and veg.

  2. Heat a frying pan or wok, add the sesame oil and stir-fry the mushrooms for 2 mins until turning golden. Add the garlic, chilli flakes and most of the spring onions, cook 1 min more, then tip in the noodles and broccoli. Splash in 3 tbsp of the stock and the hoisin sauce, then toss together for 1 min using a pair of tongs or 2 wooden spoons. Serve the noodles scattered with the cashew nuts and remaining spring onions. Add a dash more sesame oil to taste, if you like.

This is a great dish but be careful with the dried chilli as they pack a much bigger punch than fresh. My wife does not like too much heat so I use about 1/4 dried chilli.

My wife isn't too good with hot chillies so I swapped the dried chilli for thai 7 spice as I know this is great with mushrooms. The result was so tasty we both wanted more - I nearly went to the shop to get more mushrooms so I could cook it again!!

Very tasty - cooked for a veggy friend and she enjoyed also - added Green pepper and two different types of mushrooms - gave it great flavour thumbs up

This was delicious. Really easy too. I used a mix of shiitake and chestnut mushrooms. I added some green pepper too, just because I has some kicking around in the fridge, which worked well. I think without the shiitake mushrooms the taste wouldn't be as rich.

Used 1 x fresh chilli (seeds removed) and ordinary mushrooms but otherwise followed the recipe and the result was delicious. Hubby turned his into a lovely ramen soup by adding the vegetable stock to his bowl.

Delicious. I fried some aubergine slices at the beginning as I had some left over and added them. Very easy to forget to save some of the stock though!! You could also add some chicken.

Hi there, thanks for your question. This recipe isn’t suitable for freezing.

I swap hoisin sauce for soy and rather than frying the mushrooms in sesame oil, wait until everything is in the pan before adding it. The flavour of sesame oil is just too strong to fry one ingredient in or the mushrooms will taste overpoweringly of it, as I found when I did it as per the recipe the first time.
