cuisine: vegan, chinese malaysian
serves: 1 serve
  • ½ tbsp oil
  • ½ tsp of sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 4 spring onions chopped into 4cm lengths
  • 200 grams fresh wide rice noodles rinsed in hot water
  • 6-8 bite sized pieces of protein of your choice, it could be tofu, mock chicken or prawns
  • 1 tbsp kecap manis
  • ½ tbsp sriracha
  • ½ tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 handful of mung bean sprouts
  1. Prepare everything first, once you start you cannot pause to do anything because the dish will stew or burn.
  2. Heat the wok over a high heat, add the oils and heat until it smokes.
  3. Add the garlic and spring onions and stir briefly until the garlic starts to colour
  4. Add the noodles, the protein bits and the sauces and stir to mix and fry for a couple of minutes
  5. Stir through the bean sprouts and serve.
It is important to cook this for one, otherwise the wok just won't stay hot enough and the dish will stew rather than fry.
