This perked up noodles fantastically and is really easy to do too.

This was really lovely, it tasted to me like a black bean noodles you get from the Chinese take away. More ginger, yet not so sickly. Will make this again, I also did the festive five spice chicken with it.

Tasty and a nice alternative to the usual stir fries, however not the most exciting meal around. I will definitely be adding it to my pile of quick meal recipes however

One of my favourites - had this twice already this week! I use dried Shitake mushrooms which are just as good and always to hand - I buy them in bulk from the chinese supermarket!

Very nice, but it missed a bit of a bite. Next time I might add some slices of fresh chilli

my noodles were very sticky so I had to put quite a lot of oil on them but otherwise this was lovely - perfect comfort food.
