  • 2.

    Whiz the garlic, ginger & chilli in a food processor until finely minced.

  • 3.

    Add the peanuts, oil and soy sauce and whiz again until a slightly coarse paste is formed (kind of like peanut butter – add a bit of warm water if you want to thin it out a bit).

    Cook your noodles in boiling water until just soft (follow packet instructions), then toss noodles with the peanut sauce.

  • 5.

    Serve topped with finely sliced green shallots and chopped coriander leaves, with your freshly steamed green vegetables on the side.

Really easy and can be made using any meat &/or vegetable variation, as well as with noodles or rice.
