Method

  • Prepare noodles according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a wok or large non-stick frying pan. Add mince, Chinese 5 spice, eschallots and lemongrass and cook for 2-3 minutes or until meat is browned. Remove from heat, drizzle with sweet chilli sauce and tamari and toss to coat.
  • Place mince mixture in a large bowl. Add noodles, cabbage, carrot, edamame, snow peas and mint. Toss well to combine. Divide between bowls and top with extra mint, sesame seeds, chilli and peanuts, to serve.

Notes

TIPS:
  • For an Italian style bowl use Italian herbs instead of Asian flavours and serve with pasta, baby rocket, tomatoes, zucchini, ricotta and basil.
  • Lean beef strips would also work well in this recipe.
  • Use your choice of noodles or low GI rice in the Asian bowl.
