I used yard / long beans, but you can use string / french / green beans. Your can also use frozen beans. I have also added pine nuts and melon seeds for protein, but any nut will do. This recipe serves 4.

Start: Heat some water in a kettle
5.00 minutes: Top and tail the beans and cut the beans into 2-3 inch pieces, (I processed six at a time).
5.00 minutes: Steam beans using the boiled water, for five minutes or microwave according to instructions/
Meanwhile Heat the oil in a large pan or wok and add the nuts, garlic, ginger and chilli, cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add the soya sauce.
Add the steamed beans mix and turn down the heat.
2 minutes: Boil the noodles in salted e hot water (use the same water), I used quick cook noodles, so 2 minutes was enough.
