1 teaspoon of Chinese 5 spice (optional)
1 teaspoon of ground ginger
2 cloves of crushed garlic
2 tablespoons of tomato puree
4 tablespoons of dark soy sauce
2 tablespoons light soy sauce


  • Prepare the vegetables.
  • Add all the vegetable and sauce ingredients to the slow cooker and mix to combine
  • Switch the slow cooker to high for 3 hours, or on low for 5 hours.
  • Check seasoning and add additional light soy if required
  • For the noodles, if using dried, cover with boiling water for a few minutes to soften and then add these to the slow cooker for the final 10 to 20 minutes or so.
  • *If you wish, you can use 'straight to wok' noodles, add these about 30 minutes before the end and syn them accordingly!
Serving suggestion: To make this even more filling, serve with additional boiled rice to help soak up the wonderful sauce flavour!
