Method

  1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over a high heat and cook the garlic and spring onions for 1-2 minutes. Add the broccoli florets, purple sprouting broccoli, red pepper, and mushrooms and stir fry for 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Mix together the sugar, chilli powder and juice from half the lime and add to the stir-fry.
  4. Season the beaten egg with salt and pepper. Push the fried vegetables to one side of the pan and add the egg to the other side. Stir until lightly scrambled and then mix into the vegetables. Add the noodles and mix thoroughly, until heated through.
  5. Divide between two bowls, sprinkle on the chopped peanuts and serve immediately with the remaining lime, cut into wedges.
