In celebration of the Commonwealth Games starting next week we're creating a series of recipes from Commonwealth countries, starting with Singapore. We probably won't get through all 71 countries taking part, but we're going to try as many as we can!
Everyone in our house loves a good noodle dish and they're usually a great way to get lots of colourful fresh veggies into the kids.
Ingredients ( makes enough for 2 very large portions )
- 100g cooked and peeled prawns
- Half a pak choi, ends chopped finely leaving the leaves whole
- 4 spring onions, finely chopped at the green end, split in half down the white end
- Half a red pepper, finely sliced
- 1 red chilli finely sliced
- Thumbsized piece of ginger peeled and grated
- Half a courgette, finely sliced
- 100g beansprouts, washed
- 50g tender broccoli stalks, washed and sliced in half
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp medium curry powder
- 2 portions of fine dried egg noodles
- Handful of Coriander leaves
- 1 lime
- Boil some water and add the egg noodles, cook for 1 minute then turn off the heat.
- In a wok or large frying pan add all of the vegetables (apart from the ends of the spring onion) and fry for about 4 minutes
- Add the curry powder and fry for another minute
- Add about 1/2 a cup of water from the noodles then drain the noodles
- Add the noodles to the wok and mix very well before serving into two bowls
- Sprinkle coriander leaves into each bowl and squeeze the juice of a lime over your noodles.
- For variety you can substitute prawns for other meat or fish or more vegetables.
- Delicious, fresh and very quick.
Which country should we do next?
Are you excited about the Commonwealth Games? We definitely are, I always think it's such a great way to get kids enthusiastic about sports and maybe even inspire a love of a new sport. All my children do gymnastics so we always make a special effort to watch it at big sporting events, as they find it so inspiring to see what they may one day be capable of if they work hard.
