- 200g dried rice noodles
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 150g good-quality lean pork sausages, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 12 medium-sized prawns
- 2 teaspoons sambal paste
- 2 tablespoons reduced-salt soy sauce
- 1 red capsicum, thinly sliced
- 250g mung bean sprouts
- 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
- ½ cup water
- 400g bok choy, washed and sliced
1 Cover rice noodles with boiling water and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Drain.
2 While the noodles are sitting, heat half the oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat.
3 Pour in the beaten egg and cook until set (about 30 seconds), stirring with a spatula to break up. Set aside.
4 Heat remaining oil in the pan. Add sausage and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Now add prawns and stir-fry for a further 4—5 minutes.
5 Add rice noodles to the pan with sambal paste, soy sauce, and red capsicum. Cook for 1 minute, using a spatula or spoon to keep the noodles moving, separating any strands that stick together.
6 Add bean sprouts, spring onions, water and bok choy; cook for 1 more minute over high heat, stirring until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
7 Add egg and serve immediately.
Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free sausages and check soy sauce is gluten free.
