  • Shred the bamboo shoots and spinach leaves into thin strips.

  • Cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water according to the instructions on the packet.

  • Heat about half the oil in a hot wok or frying pan.

  • While waiting for it to smoke, drain the noodles in a sieve.

  • Add them with about half the spring onions and the soy sauce to the wok and stir-fry.

  • Do not overcook or the noodles will become soggy.

  • Remove and place them on a serving dish.

  • Add the rest of the oil to the wok.

  • When hot, add the other spring onions and stir a few times.

  • Then add all the vegetables and continue stirring.

  • After 30 seconds, add the salt and the remaining soy sauce together with a little water if necessary.

  • As soon as the gravy starts to boil, add the sesame seed oil and blend everything well.
