Serves 4
10 mins to prepare and 10 mins to cook

5cm piece of ginger
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons low-salt soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

hot chilli sauce, to serve (optional)


  1. Peel the ginger and garlic and finely grate into a large bowl.

  2. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and a pinch of black pepper, then mix to make a dressing.

  3. Trim and shred the cabbage and put it into a large pan of boiling salted water with the broccoli (cut into florets first, if using fresh) and noodles to cook for around 3 minutes, then add the mangetout for a final minute.

  4. Drain it all well, then toss in the bowl of dressing.

  5. Fry the eggs in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat with a lug of olive oil until cooked to your liking.

  6. Divide the noodles between bowls, pop an egg on top of each one, and serve drizzled with chilli sauce for that all-important added kick.
