INGREDIENTS

  1. 500g Hokkien noodles
  2. 15ml canola oil
  3. 1 egg, lightly beaten
  4. 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ginger, chopped
  6. 1/2 red capsicum, sliced
  7. 250g chicken breast chopped
  8. 1/2 cup tablespoons cabbage, shredded
  9. 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  10. 1/2 cup broccoli, cut into florets
  11. 1/2 zucchini, sliced
  12. 1/2 cup grated carrot
  13. 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  14. 1/2 cup snow peas
  15. 2 shallots, sliced
  16. 25ml salt reduced soy sauce

 

TIP

Substitute the chicken for a different type of meat or leave it out all together for a tasty vegetarian meal.

 

METHOD

  1. Soak noodles in boiling water for five minutes, then drain.
  2. Place oil in a heated wok. Add the egg and stir until cooked.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, capsicum and chicken, cook for three to five minutes.
  4. Add the cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli, zucchini, carrot, red onion and snow peas and cook for a further five minutes.
  5. Slowly add the Hokkien noodles a little at a time so they don’t stick together. Cook for five minutes until noodles are hot.
  6. Finish with sliced shallots and soy sauce.

 

NOTE

You can never have enough colourful, non-starchy vegetables (green beans, cauliflower, squash)! Chop up any leftover veggies you have and just add them at step 4 with the other vegetables for an extra fibre boost.
