    • Cook the noodles in a saucepan of boiling water for 4 minutes, or according to packet instructions. Drain the noodles well and set aside.

    • Add the noodles to the wok and toss everything together. Heat and stir for 2-3 minutes until all the ingredients are well combined. To finish add the soy sauce, black pepper and coriander leaves. Serve immediately!
