    Stir-fried cabbage and mushrooms with noodles

    A speedy dinner that's low in saturated fat but full of flavour and texture. For best results, have your ingredients weighed out and prepped in advance. This dish matches brilliantly with a vibrant, hoppy ale.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    20g unsalted peanuts
    3 tbsp vegetable oil
    200g pack mixed exotic mushrooms, sliced
    4 salad onions, roughly chopped
    4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
    ΒΌ tsp chilli flakes
    1 essential Waitrose Savoy Cabbage, core removed and leaves shredded
    2 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
    2 tsp Chinese rice vinegar
    2 tsp caster sugar
    3 nests (about 190g) dried fine egg noodles
    1 tsp sesame oil


    1. Toast the peanuts in a dry frying pan until golden, then set aside. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large wok over a high heat. Stir-fry the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes until golden, then tip on to a plate and set aside.

    2. Return the pan to the heat with the remaining 2 tbsp oil. Add the salad onions, garlic and chilli. Stir, then tip in the cabbage and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until softened and lightly charred in places. Mix the soy, vinegar and sugar with 1 tbsp water and add to the pan. Combine, then toss in the mushrooms, stir-frying until hot. Take the pan off the heat and set aside. Meanwhile, prepare a saucepan of boiling water, ready for the noodles.

    3. Drop the noodles into the boiling water and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain, toss with the sesame oil and then add to the wok with the stir-fried vegetables. Scatter over the peanuts, to serve.
