Sweet potato noodles are a great gluten-free noodle option. They are used in the traditional Korean dish called japchae and can be found at most Asian supermarkets. Once cooked, they become translucent and silky in texture, and are delicious to eat.

300g (1 packet) sweet potato noodles

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp julienned ginger

2 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced on a mandolin

3 spring onions, white part thinly sliced, green parts cut into julienne and reserved for garnish

1 chicken breast, thinly sliced

6 shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced

80 ml shao xing wine

60 ml (¼ cup) soy sauce

3 tsp sesame oil

Roasted sesame seeds, to serve

1. Cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water until tender (5-7 minutes). Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside.
2. Heat oil in a wok over high heat, add ginger, garlic and sliced spring onion and stir-fry until fragrant (20 seconds).
