3. Heat your wok on medium-high heat and sauté your vegetables whilst the noodles are cooking.
4. When the noodles are soft, or al dente depending on your preference, drain the water away and combine with the sauce, stirring through well.
5. When the vegetables have softened, particularly the broccoli stems, take off the heat and combine with the noodle and sauce mix.
6. Serve with a sprinkle of salt and optional sesame seeds, chopped spring onion, chilli flakes and red chilli pepper.
7. Grab your chopsticks and enjoy! Vitamin D3 is recommended to be taken with food, so take this opportunity to remember to take your vitamins.
