Vegetarian Chow Mein

A quick and simple dish that can be prepared for the whole family in a matter of minutes! Spice it up with some chilli, or add your own variations of meat and vegetables.

  1. If you are using fresh noodles, blanch them first in a large pot of boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. If you are using the dried noodles, cook in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the noodles, then put them into cold water until required.
  2. String the celery and slice diagonally. Shred the bamboo shoots.
  3. Heat a wok or large frying-pan and add the oil. When moderately hot, add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the onion, mushrooms, celery, and bamboo shoots and stir-fry for about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the noodles thoroughly and put into the wok. Continue to stir-fry for 1 minute then add the rest of the ingredients except the bean sprouts. Continue to stir-fry for another 2 minutes and then add the bean sprouts. Give the mixture a good stir and turn it onto a serving platter.
  5. Garnish with fresh coriander sprigs.
