  • wok or skillet


  • 250 g Chow mein noodles substitute for egg noodles or ramen noodles
  • 1 Red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 big garlic cloves chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Chow Mein sauce

  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar: I love to use brown sugar but you can use granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar


  • Cook the noodles according to instructions, add about ½ teaspoon of oil while cooking as that would stop it from sticking while you make the stir fry. Drain and set aside
  • Make the chow Mein sauce and set aside (mix all into a bowl)
  • Place a wok on medium-high heat, add oil and heat until hot. Add the chopped garlic and stir in the oil for about 10 seconds, working as fast as you can so it doesn’t burn.
  • Add sugar snap peas and cook for a minute or two (the idea here is to cook the harder vegetables first)
  • Add the chopped bell peppers and stir fry for another 1 minute, then go on to add the chopped green peppers, broccoli and chillies, season with salt and pepper and stir fry for another 2 minutes.
  • Then add the drained cooked noodles, stir into the vegetable to combine. Lastly, pour the chow mein sauce over the noodles and stir well to combine.
  • Take it off the heat and serve immediately



Prep the veggies before you start cooking as you have to work quickly once you start stir-frying.
Make the chow Mein sauce and set aside but give it a good mix before adding it to the noodles.
