Satay rice noodles with courgettes, carrots and cashews

Super-speedy, nutritionally dense, bloomin’ delicious dinner. Ten minutes from start to finish! A perfect homemade alternative when you feel like getting a takeaway.



Firstly, make the satay. In a nutri-bullet or blender, mix in all of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add water very gradually until you get a thick, hummous consistency. Taste and season with soy, chilli or lemon to your liking.

Boil the kettle. Place the noodles in a bowl and pour over the boiling water. leave to stand for 3-4 minutes (or as per the packet’s instructions) until cooked, stir through with a fork and drain. Add the satay to the bowl and stir well. Finally, add in the grated vegetables and chopped nuts and enjoy!

I love fine tuning meals while I am eating them, enjoying balancing sweet vs sour vs spice as I go so always have soy, lemon and chilli to hand. My husband on the other hand likes things just the way they are. Each to their own!



This is for when you are ravenous in the evening and want a quick-fix meal full of energy-boosting ingredients. This satay, unlike many that you’d buy in a jar, is full of healthy ingredients to give you the boost your body needs. Leftovers are excellent for lunch the following day.
