A decent little stir fry

Healthful and delicious.  You will need (for one)

Soba noodles (about the same or slightly less as a portion of spaghetti)
Rice wine vinegar
Sesame oil

Two eggs, beaten
Vegetable oil

Ginger, about an inch, peeled and cut into fine batons
One clove of garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
Four spring onions, sliced
One small courgette, cut into slender batons
Mange tout or sugar snaps, a handful
Soy sauce

Sesame seeds, toasted
Bonito flakes

Boil the soba noodles until tender.  Drain well and return to the pan and dress with a few drops of sesame oil and rice wine vinegar.  Toss and set aside.

In a wok, heat a drop of vegetable oil.  When hot, pour in the beaten eggs and make a quick omelette.  When cooked through, transfer to a plate and cut into strips.  Wipe out the wok with kitchen towel.  Heat another drop of vegetable oil and quickly fry the ginger, garlic and spring onions.  Do not let them brown.  After about a minute add the vegetables, sprinkle with a few drops of water and soy sauce and stir fry.  After a minute or so add the dressed noodles and omelette.  Break up the noodles to distribute the egg and vegetables evenly throughout.  Add another sprinkling of soy.

Transfer to a plate and top with the toasted sesame seeds and bonito flakes.
