Low FODMAP Recipe: Super Fast Prawn Noodles


1l chicken stock (we used Knorr Touch-of-taste)

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp hoisin sauce

1 tbsp fish sauce

large piece fresh root ginger, shredded into thin matchsticks

300g peeled king prawns (raw would be better, but cooked are fine)

4 bok choi, each cut into quarters

2 sachets straight-to-wok rice noodles

4 scallion/spring onions, finely sliced - Green ends only


In a wok or large saucepan, bring the stock to the boil. Stir the sauces into the stock, then add the ginger. Simmer for a moment, then add the prawns: if raw, simmer for 2 mins until they turn pink; if cooked, add together with the bok choi, then cook for 2 mins more until just wilted.

Slip all the noodles into the broth, then gently stir to loosen them. Bring the liquid back to a simmer, then cook for 2 mins more to warm them through. Scatter with spring onions and serve straight from the wok, using tongs for the noodles and a ladle for the broth.
