  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  1. Finely chop the leek, spinach, pak choi and sorrel. Stir-fry until the greens soften. Season with paprika and salt. Add 1 litre of boiling water.
  2. Cook for 15 mins. Finely chop the parsley and crush the garlic. Add these along with the noodles and cook until the noodles are ready. Remove from the stove.
