Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 2x 250g packs mixed vegetable stir fry (we used noodle-cut vegetables)
  • 300g straight-to-wok noodles (see tips)
  • 4 medium free-range eggs
  • 3 tbsp desiccated coconut, toasted 
  • Handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • Lime wedges to serve (optional)

For the quick sambal

  • 1 red onion, ½ chopped and ½ sliced
  • 1 tbsp chilli paste (we used Bart)
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • Thumb-size piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil (use toasted sesame if you have it), plus a splash

Method

  1.  In a small bowl, mix together all the sambal ingredients, except the sliced red onion, with salt and pepper. Set aside. 
  2. Heat a large wok or large, deep frying pan with a splash of oil over a medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until tender. Add the rice noodles and sambal, then toss together over the heat for a couple of minutes.
  3.  Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a bowl with a splash of oil. Heat a 20cm non-stick frying pan brushed with vegetable oil over a medium-high heat. Add half the egg to the pan and cook for a few minutes, swirling the pan after 30 seconds to make a thin omelette. Once the egg is just set, tip onto a chopping board, then roll up and slice. Repeat with the remaining egg to make a second omelette.
  4.  Divide the stir-fried noodles and sliced omelette among plates. Scatter over the toasted coconut and coriander, then serve with the lime wedges, if using.
