Aka what you do in the de Bodard household when dealing with a hungry baby… This is very much a fusion dish: the original is a Vietnamese version of a Chinese dish, and I’ve substituted the egg noodles with wholewheat rotini, which are easier to get hold of in France and add intriguing taste to the mix.

It’s  a good dish for recycling meat or shrimp or crab leftovers (I used pork here, but you can substitute chicken or shrimp or crab quite easily).

A good fusion dish.
  • 160g wholewheat rotini
  • 120g cooked pork (tenderloin or butt)
  • 3-4 spring onions
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Cooking oil
  1. Cook the rotini, drain and reserve.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the spring onions (green and white part) into rings.
  3. In a wok on medium heat, heat up around 3 tablespoons of cooking oil. When hot, add the spring onions and shallots (there should be enough oil that the spring onions are thoroughly covered). Stir for a minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add the noodles and the soy sauce, mix well.
  5. Add the pork. Taste: it should be salty with a kick; if not, add more soy sauce.
  6. Serve hot.
