Anne-Marie's favourite

"There is a reason why Mee Goreng (spiced fried noodles) is a staple of Indonesian street food: this delicious combination of fresh noodles, aromatics, meat and vegetables is versatile and can be enjoyed at any time of the day—or year! In this recipe, we create a vegetarian version featuring fresh Shanghai noodles, sweet peppers, Nantes carrots and Chinese broccoli. Cooked with aromatics, herbs and spices and garnished with spiced peanuts and fresh cilantro, this meal will surely pique your interest in the islands and cities of Southeast Asia!"

    Cook the noodles
    Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 5 to 7 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the noodles, drizzle with oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.
