This meal is exactly what I felt like after a long time away, the comfort of hot broth with the lightness of lime, ginger and bean sprouts. It’s the enoki mushrooms that are the silent winner in this dish, though, blending through the noodles for extra depth of flavour and a deliciously silky texture.
This delicious dish is all the rice noodle, soy sauce and eggy goodness of a stirfry, mixed with the freshness of juicy prawns, chopped cabbage and a hit of lime – both filling and light at the same time
This dish kills me every time; it’s so simple and so bloody delicious. It’s even healthy, more so if you switch out the soba noodles with bean sprouts or other veggies
Frying up crispy tofu might not be the healthiest option, but it sure tastes the best, particularly when served with a sweet soy and rice wine sauce
