Ingredients

  • 4 Essential Free Range White Eggs
  • 3 vegetable stock cubes
  • 30g piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 bunch Essential Salad Onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 400g Essential Courgettes, cut into small dice
  • 400g Essential Mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 250g pack medium egg noodles
  • 25g pack flat leaf parsley, chopped

Method

  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the eggs. Cook for 6 minutes, then drain and cover with cold water until later. Meanwhile, crumble the stock cubes into a large saucepan and stir in 1.2L water. Add the ginger, soy sauce and ½ the salad onions, then heat gently until simmering.

  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the courgettes and mushrooms and fry for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Peel the eggs.

  3. Transfer the mushrooms and courgettes to the pan of stock, add the noodles and cook for a further 3 minutes, until the noodles are tender. Ladle into shallow bowls, halve the eggs and add to the bowls, topping each one with the remaining salad onions and a sprinkling of parsley.

Cook’s tip

A noodle broth is a good way of using up vegetable odds and ends from the fridge such as French beans, runner beans, sugar snaps, kale or broccoli. Small quantities of leftover cooked chicken, pork, beef or lamb from a roast can also go in when adding the noodles.
