Recipe tips
  • For a gluten-free alternative, use rice noodles and gluten-free tamari.
  • You could swap out the soya beans for chickpeas or frozen green beans.
  • Go veggie by using marinated tofu pieces instead of chicken.
  • This recipe would also work well with turkey instead of chicken.
  • Shiitake mushrooms are a natural flavour enhancer and far healthier than the monosodium glutamate used in many Chinese takeaways.
