  • 1 low-salt vegetable stock cube
  • 2 nests medium egg noodles
  • 1 small head broccoli, broken into florets



    Like cabbage and cauliflower, broccoli is a brassica and is sometimes known by its Italian name…

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil, plus extra to serve
  • 250g pack shiitake or chestnut mushroom, thickly sliced
  • 1 fat garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp chilli flakes, or crumble one dried chilli into pieces
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced

    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…

  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • handful roasted cashew nuts



    The seeds from the 'Cashew Apple' - a tree which bears bright orange fruit and is native…


  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.

very quick and easy. Nice flavours, fresh, enjoyed it.

Delicious. I just made this for the first time; I substituted the spring onion for normal yellow onions and so I fried that before I added the mushrooms. I also added some courgette which soaked up the sauce nicely. I didn't have hoisin so soy sauce did more than suffice. This meal is incredibly easy and could be made with meat easily. Also, I found it particularly easy to make the meal for one which is handy for anyone with a fussy other half.

Very hearty, we definitely didn't miss the meat. Lacked a wee bit in flavour as the hoisin sauce tends to be rather bland and mild for my taste.

Very simple to make. Tastes lovely! Even my husband who doesn't think much of veggie recipes enjoyed it.

Lorraine, I think instead of broccoli you could use peppers (Red or orange/yellow are best as their slightly sweet) cut into strips, and just add them at the same stage as the mushrooms. Hope this is helpful :)
