Top tips:

  • You may wish to eat your noodles plain. If so, just cook as instructed on the packaging.
  • Add extra vegetables to create a noodle main meal, e.g. frozen peas, canned sweetcorn, sliced mushrooms, chopped red pepper.
  • You may wish to toast the sesame seeds.
  • Note – some people may be allergic to sesame seeds. Always check before serving the dish to someone else.
