For stir-frying

  • 160 g dry rice noodles 5.6oz
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 egg, beaten
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 handful baby spinach
  • 2 tsp fresh chilli, finely chopped

For seasoning


Prepare the noodles

  • Soak dry rice noodles in boiling water for the amount of time recommended for stir-fries (read instructions on the package. It varies depends on the brand).
  • Rinse under cold water then leave the noodles in a bowl of cold water. Cut them into shorter strips with scissors.

Mix the sauce

  • Mix all the ingredients for seasoning. Set aside.

Stir fry

  • Heat up oil in a wok (or a deep frying pan) over high heat until it smokes. Pour in the beaten egg. Break it into small pieces with a spatula.
  • As soon as the egg is cooked, add onion & garlic. fry for 30 seconds or so.
  • Take rice noodles out of the water and put directly into the wok.
  • Add the seasoning prepared earlier. Stir fry constantly until the noodles are evenly heated.
  • Stir in baby spinach and fresh chilli. Turn off the heat immediately once the spinach wilts.


I don’t recommend that you cook for more than two servings at once unless your wok or frying pan is very big and your heat source is powerful enough for a large volume of ingredients. Cook in batches if you need more servings.
