Ingredients
40g finely sliced cooked chicken or ham
1 spring onion, very finely sliced
1 tbsp grated carrot
1 tbsp grated courgette
1 handful of very finely chopped spinach
1 small clove garlic, very finely chopped
1 nest rice noodles (the kind that only need to be soaked in hot water)
1tsp sesame oil
1/4 chicken stock cube
1/2 tsp chilli powder or curry powder
Instructions
Prepare the vegetables keeping them very small or grated.
Finely slice the chicken.
Place the noodles in a bowl, cover with just boiled water, place a plate on top and leave for 5 minutes.
In another bowl, add the teaspoon of sesame oil, all the vegetables, chicken, chilli powder, stock cube and 1/2 a mug of just-boiled water.
Drain the noodles, transfer them to a bowl and add the vegetable and chicken mix. Stir well.
