This is vegan fakeaway heaven with our take on a naughty Chinese takeaway classic, Singapore Noodles. This dish traditionally uses rice vermicelli noodles, but we’ve made our version with wholemeal noodles for some added nutrition and bite – but it’s great either way!

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (sorry, couldn’t resist); lettuce and salad leaves are one of the most wasted household foods, with shoppers throwing away an unbelievable 40% of bagged salad!
