  • 300g pack stir-fry vegetable with peppers and mangetout (we used Sainsbury's read-to-use baby leaf stir-fry)
  • handful basil leaves
  • 25g roasted peanuts, roughly chopped


  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.

Absolutely delicious! I added chillis, dash of fish sauce, pak choi and chicken. Such a tasty dish

Added some raw king prawns to this, along with 3 spring onions, and a red chilli. Instead of a prepared veg mix I used red pepper, pak choy, cauliflower and sugar snap peas. Really enjoyed it - very filling.

Me and my husband have just had this for tea tonight and we were really surprised how nice it was. We tweaked the recipe slightly by cooking some chicken in the oven with some of the satay sauce mixture with a fresh clove of garlic and a red chilli, then adding it to the veg and noodles. It was delicious! will definitely make again

This was nicer than I've had in any restaurant. The basil makes it taste really fresh.

Really tasty - kids loved it. My wife licked the plate clean. Will do it again, A good idea might be to cook some meat or fish in the sauce afterwards.

Great fresh midweek dinner. Cooked a sliced chicken breast in the pan first, added some fish sauce to the mix too.

nice and easy. I cooked dry wholewheat noodles though. Fried chicken breast strips first and added some fresh coriander at the end with the basil. Would definitely make again.

Delish - added a stick of lemongrass and a fresh chilli for added spice. Also was flexible with the vegetables as used babycorn, mangetout, peppers, mushroom, brocolli and spring onions! Would definitely make again

Good base recipe but a little bland without tweaking the sauce - I added the juice of 2 limes and 1 large clove of grated garlic. I also put the ginger into the sauce instead of straight into the wok as it always burns for me. Whole family loved it, added fresh chilli to mine and hubby's portions. Will definitely make again!
