Spice up your vegetables with chilli, lemongrass and garlic. This nutritious dish is light, fresh and very tasty. 

In a pestle and mortar, crush the garlic, lemongrass and chilli to a paste. Scrape into a bowl and add the soy sauce, lime juice and zest and half the sesame oil.

Heat the remaining oil in a wok or large nonstick frying pan and cook the baby corn, mangetout and peppers for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly charred.

Meanwhile, put the noodles in a sieve over the sink and pour over a freshly boiled kettle of water, to soften.

Add the noodles, most of the coriander and the lemongrass mixture to the pan. Cook for 1 minute, or until warmed through. Divide between 4 bowls and scatter over the remaining coriander and peanuts. Serve with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over.
