This dish makes for and tasty quick supper. Noodle bowls are a great way to use up leftover veggies. They work well for cooked veg and grated or thinly sliced raw veg too as well as using soft herbs to finish it off.
It’s a great dish too if you’re fighting winter colds, just amp up the ginger and garlic to ward off the sniffles!
Any noodles will do, Chinese thin ones, rice noodles or even spaghetti, if you are stuck.
