Grilled soy eggplant on a bed of creamy coconut infused rice noodles and stir-fry vegetables topped with crunchy peanuts and fresh mint.
1. Bring a saucepan of water to boil. Cook noodles in boiling water for 4-5 minutes until just tender. Drain and rinse under cold water.

2. Cut broccoli into small florets. Slice capsicum, trim and halve sugar snap peas. Set aside.

3. Combine coconut milk with 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1-2 tbsp curry powder, lime zest and 1/2 the juice. Wedge remaining 1/2 lime.

4. Heat griddle pan over medium-high heat Halve eggplants lengthways. Coat with 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp oil. Cook for 5-6 minutes each side until charred and cooked through. Season well with pepper.

5. Heat wok over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil. Add vegetables to cook for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Add sauce and toss through cooked noodles for 1-2 minutes until warmed through. Take off heat and season with extra soy sauce to taste.

6. Divide noodles and eggplant among bowls. Roughly chop peanuts and mint, scatter over top. Serve with lime wedges.

After the noodles are cooked, leave them sitting in the sieve and not the bottom of the pot. This will prevent them from clumping together. Rinse them again to loosen if needed.

You could also blend the peanuts together with the coconut milk and curry powder to make a thicker satay sauce.
