Ingredients to serve 1

  • 50g x vermicelli rice noodles
  • 1 x radish – cut off end, slice finely
  • ¼ x onion – peel and chop finely
  • 1 clove x garlic – crush, peel and chop
  • ¼ head x broccoli – cut into small florets
  • 125g x chipolata pork sausages
  • ½ x egg – beat lightly (from your pantry)
  • 1 stalk x spring onion – cut off end and slice
  • 3g x fresh coriander – chop finely
  • ½ x lime
  • ⅛ tsp x fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp x sesame oil
  • ¾ tbsp x soy sauce
  • ½ tsp x chilli flakes
  • ¼ tsp x honey
  • olive oil, salt (from your pantry)


Step 1

Preparation: Prepare all the ingredients as indicated above. Grate the rind of the lime on the fine side of a box grater (to create lime zest) and then halve and juice.

Step 2

Vietnamese Sauce: Add the following ingredients to a bowl: lime juice, lime zest, fish sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, chilli flakes, honey and HALF the garlic. Mix well and set aside.

Step 3

Sausages: Heat a few generous glugs of olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the chipolata sausages and pan fry for 15 minutes, turning often until they are brown all over. Remove from stove and slice diagonally. Keep the pan (with the oil) to cook the rice noodles later.

Step 4

Veggies: Heat a few glugs of olive oil in another large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions, radishes and the other HALF of the garlic. Stir fry for 4 minutes. Add broccoli florets and sliced chipolata sausages and HALF the Vietnamese Sauce. Cook for another 3 or 4 minutes, tossing the ingredients often.

Step 5

Rice noodles: Place the noodles in a large bowl. Cover with boiling water and leave for 5 minutes. Drain. Put the pan you cooked the sausages in back on the stove over medium heat and add the noodles. Make a well in to the centre of the noodles and add the beaten egg. Stir the egg until it starts to set but is still wet. Then quickly mix the egg through the noodles until the egg is cooked and you have fluffy bits of egg throughout.

Step 6

To serve, combine the veggie and noodle mixtures. Add the spring onions and fresh coriander. Toss gently to mix. Add the rest of the Vietnamese Sauce.
