500ml Chicken Stock

1 Thumb Ginger, sliced

1 Clove Garlic, sliced

½ Red Chilli, finely sliced

100g Noodles

100g Cooked Chicken Meat (ideal leftover from a roast)

100g Edamame Beans

1 tbsp Soy Sauce

Nasturtium Oil

60g Nasturtiums

3tbsp Rapeseed Oil

Cucumber Ribbons, Lime Juice & Spring Onions to Serve.


1. Begin with the Nasturtium Oil. Add the nasturtiums and oil to a blender and blitz to a puree. Strain through a muslin into a bottle. Don’t be tempted to push the solids through the muslin as this will make your oil cloudy. Set aside.

2. Bring the stock to a simmer with the garlic, chilli and ginger. Add the noodles and cook until just al dente.

3. Add the chicken, peas, edamame and soy and heat through.

4. Remove the ginger, chilli and garlic, taste and adjust the seasoning.

5. Add a splash of nasturtium oil, cucumber and spring onion, sit back and enjoy.
