Rashford describes this recipe as “a super quick and easy way to pimp up a corner shop staple and
make it go a bit further by adding in some veg”. It serves two people and can be made in 10 minutes.
All the ingredients you’ll need
Half small white cabbage
2 spring onions
1 packet of super noodles (chow mein flavour)
1 vegetable reduced salt stock cube
Half mug frozen peas
A splash of reduced salt soy sauce
How do you make the pimped up super noodles?
- Start by preparing the veg. Peel and grate the carrot, and slice the cabbage and spring onions.
- Next, pour 2 mugs of boiling water from the kettle into a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the noodles, along with the flavour sachet, and crumble in the stock cube. Give it a stir and then reduce to a simmer so that it’s bubbling very gently. Cook for 4 minutes.
- For the last minute of cooking, add the cabbage and the frozen peas to the pan.
- Turn off the heat and add the grated carrot and sliced spring onions to the pan, then add a splash of soy sauce. Spoon into bowls and tuck in.
