  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 200°C, fan 190°C. Bake the Chicken-Free Dippers on a nonstick baking tray for 12-15 mins until golden and crisp.​ 
  2. To make the sauce, whisk the pineapple juice (it should measure 100ml; if not, top up with a little water) with the cornflour, ketchup, sugar, soy and vinegar.​ 
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the peppers, spring onions and cashews and stir-fry for 2-3 mins until golden at the edges. Add the garlic, fry for 1 min more, then add the sugarsnaps. Pour in the sauce and pineapple chunks and bubble for 2-3 mins until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are tender.​ 
  4. Meanwhile, heat the noodles according to pack instructions. Divide between shallow bowls.​ 
  5. Stir the dippers through the sauce to coat. Serve immediately with the noodles​.
