Add the rice noodles to a shallow bowl, cover them with cold water and set them aside to soak

Once coloured, remove from the oven and set aside
Meanwhile, boil a kettle
Add the rice noodles with boiled water and cook over a high heat for 5-8 min or until they're cooked
Once done, drain, rinse them under cold water and return them to the pot
Meanwhile, peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate)
Zest and juice the lime[s] into a small bowl
Tip: try to grate lightly with a micro-plane or sharp box grater and avoid grating the white pith, as this is very bitter!
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the ginger and beef mince with a pinch of salt and cook for 10 min or until cooked and starting to crisp
Meanwhile, combine the rice vinegar, chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and soy sauce with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] sugar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil – this is your finishing sauce
Add 2 tsp [4 tsp] olive oil to the lime zest and juice and season lightly with salt and pepper – this is your zesty lime dressing
Shred the little gem[s] finely
Trim then slice the spring onions finely
Peel the carrot[s], then continue to peel lengths until you end up with a pile of carrot 'ribbons'
Combine the carrot, lettuce and spring onion in a large mixing bowl
Chop the toasted peanuts coarsely (or bash them up in a bag with a rolling pin)
Add the finishing sauce to the beef and stir-fry quickly for 2 min or until the sauce is reduced and sticky
Combine the noodles with the carrot, lettuce, spring onion and the zesty lime dressing (use your hands for ease)
