Inevitably you can substitue out plenty of the ingredients in this dish for other ingredients.

Don’t want noodles – put in bean sprouts instead.

Got some carrots – slice them really finely and chuck them in

Want some extra spice? Chcuk in some grate horse radish root or cornish wild wasabi leaf or some Sea Radish Leaves
