Use shop-bought Chinese duck in this 15 minute meal made with hoisin sauce, soy beans and soba noodles.

Ingredients

  • 150g dried soba noodles
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red chilli
  • 180g baby pak choi
  • 20g fresh ginger, grated
  • 100ml plum and hoisin sauce
  • 1 ready-cooked Chinese duck, shredded (discard the bones and excess fat)
  • 200g frozen soy beans
  • 4 spring onions, shredded

Method

  1. Cook the soba noodles in boiling water, according to pack instructions. Refresh in cold water, drain and set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok over a medium heat and add the chilli, deseeded and chopped. Fry, stirring, for 30 seconds, then add the pak choi, halved, and the fresh ginger, grated, along with 3 tablespoons water.
  3. Stir-fry for a minute before adding the plum and hoisin sauce, the Chinese duck, and the soy beans. When everything is bubbling, add the noodles and toss to mix.
  4. Stir 3 spring onions, shredded, through, setting a few aside to garnish. Divide the noodles between warmed bowls and sprinkle with the remaining spring onion.

  1. This Chinese-style dish is faster than a takeaway. You can use leftover roast chicken, pork or beef instead of duck.
