3. Slice spring onions into 3cm lengths. Trim and halve sugar snap peas. Slice carrot into crescents. Slice chilli and coriander. Wedge lemon. Keep separate.

4. Heat a frypan or wok over medium-high heat with 1/2 tbsp oil. Toss in spring onions, sugar snap peas, carrot and tempeh (wipe out sauce from packet). Cook, tossing, for 3-4 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Toss in bean shoots.

5. Add noodles and sauce into frypan. Toss together until well coated. Season well with pepper.
