By Amanda James


  • streaky bacon 6 rashers
  • sesame seeds 1 tbsp
  • pak choi 1, quartered lengthways
  • sugar snap peas 100g
  • baby corn 100g
  • instant ramen noodles 2 packs (with flavour sachets)
  • soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • spring onion 1, sliced
  • sesame oil 1 tbsp
  • chilli sauce to serve


  • Step 1

    Put the bacon into a wide, deep frying pan and cook, turning, over a medium heat until just starting to crisp. Sprinkle with 1/2 the sesame seeds, flip, then sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds. Cook until the bacon is really crisp and the sesame seeds have toasted, then remove onto a plate. Tip the pak choi, sugar snap peas and baby corn into the same pan, and toss for 1 minute in the bacon fat. Add the ramen noodles, flavour sachets and recommended amount of water, and simmer according to pack instructions. Then add the soy sauce.

  • Step 2

    Divide the noodles, soup and veg between two bowls, then top with spring onions, sesame oil, sesame-crusted bacon and a drizzle of chilli sauce, if you like.
