Oodles of noodles make for a super maple beef stir-fry. There is lots of fibre thanks to the vitamin-rich green vegetables, which take on a lovely caramelised quality with the syrup.

Cover noodles in boiling water and cook.

Drain and toss with the sesame oil. Stir together the sh sauce, soy sauce, stock, half the maple syrup and maple sugar.

Blanch kohlrabi, pak choi, spinach and tender stem broccoli in boiling water, and refresh in cold water and set aside.

Heat a large wok or frying pan over a high heat. Add peanut oil, and when very hot, add the beef in two batches, cooking for 1 minute to seal and brown. Remove and set aside.

Stir-fry the ginger, pak choi, kohlrabi and broccoli with the rest of the maple.

Add beef and sauce and cook for another minute to slightly reduce the sauce.

Toss noodles through the sauce in the pan or spoon in a bowl with beef stir-fry on top.
