This is my go-to recipe for when I'm hungry and in a hurry, as it is fast, simple, and totally satisfying.
Pad Thai jay with lime and sesame
1 tablespoon sunflower oil
6 florets of long-stem broccoli
generous handful of kale
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
10 sugar snap peas
8 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 packs of soft cooked noodles
1 spring onion, finely sliced
handful of fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 tablespoon peanuts, roughly crushed
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
1 unwaxed lime
Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat until smoking hot. In the meantime, trim any tough stems from the broccoli and kale.
Add the chilli, broccoli, kale, and sugar snap peas to the wok and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes. Spoon in the soy sauce and stir through. Then add the noodles and continue to stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, being careful not to break the noodles. Cook until all the ingredients are coated in soy sauce and the vegetables are crisp and bright.
Remove the wok from the heat and stir the spring onion and coriander through the pad Thai jay. Scatter the peanuts over the top along with the sesame seeds and red chilli. Slice the lime in half and squeeze the juice through a sieve onto the noodles. Serve immediately.
