This dish is so simple yet so tasty. I swap the noodles for egg noodles. I usually make a batch to have for lunches during the week, and warm it up in the microwave. Made it two or three times and I plan to keep making it!

I used some cold left over lamb instead of chicken which worked surprisingly well. I added spring onions and sweet chilli sauce for a bit more flavour. Nice simple lunch which I will make again.

I wasn't sure about how this would taste when I was making it but it all came together at the end and was a really lovely meal. Loved the contrast between the soft noodles and the crunchy veg. Don't skip the toasted sesame seeds though - they give the dish a lot of extra flavour!

Yummy! I made with egg noodles, mangetout, sugarsnap peas and spring onions. I used turkey and added a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce with the soy. Delicious, healthy lunch!
