This is simply simple! Some people confuse chow mein with stir fry and add lots of veg, but chow mein is a noodle dish and should be kept very simple but tasty. This does just that . . . no more trips to the takeaway after you try this seriously authentic dish!

So delicious and easy, and you can use any meat or veg you wish or omit the meat completely if you are vegetarian.

My mum's chow mein recipe which has been slightly adapted... Lovely comfort food! Beef mince, cabbage, noodles and soy. This serves 2 people usually with some leftovers which heats well in the microwave.

A mixture of green vegetables adds colour, crispness and food value to this simple noodle stir-fry with pork and dried mushrooms. Chinese egg noodles are prepared more quickly than Western pasta – they only need brief soaking – so this dish can be made from start to finish in less than 30 minutes.

Like it or not, the chow mein you taste from the food stalls in Shanghai are very hard to replicate at home. Probably because they are fried twice! The good news is, my homemade chow mein tastes amazing!

This dish is easy to make, and full of flavour. The chicken is incredibly tender, and the ginger, garlic and soy sauce combine to give it its authentic taste. Garnish with chopped fresh coriander.
