These noodles take mere minutes to throw together, and you can pad them out with veg to make them go further and ramp up their nutritional value – you can sometimes add a cupful of those small, diced, mixed frozen vegetables and some extra peas, too. Don’t be put off by the jar of salmon paste suggestion; it is a surprisingly versatile ingredient in speedy budget cookery, and it works well here.
