Spicy mushroom & broccoli noodles  Tongue Out


1 low-salt vegetable stock cube

2 nests medium egg noodles

1 small head broccoli , broken into florets

1 tbsp sesame oil , plus extra to serve

250g pack shiitake or chestnut mushrooms , thickly sliced

1 fat garlic clove , finely chopped

½ tsp chilli flakes , or crumble one dried chilli into pieces

4 spring onions , thinly sliced

2 tbsp hoisin sauce

handful roasted cashew nuts

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.

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.
