- Remove from heat and stir through the green spring onion and spinach.

Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free noodles and check soy sauce, mirin and sriracha (if using) are gluten free.
Tweak the taste: Add 1 finely chopped fresh chilli with ginger and a drizzle of sriracha sauce over the dish just before serving. Swap out the pork mince for sliced shiitake mushrooms for a classy vegetarian dish, or simply add shiitake mushrooms to the existing recipe for some grown-up goodness.
