(Serves 2)

  • 1/2 pkt quinoa udon noodles (Spiral)
  • 2 tbls olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 anchovies
  • 3 tbls coriander root and stems, chopped
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 500gms vongole ( clams)


Step 1
Cook your noodles as per manufacturer’s instruction.

Step 2
Wash the vongole really well and let sit in water in the fridge whilst preparing the dish.
In a nice, big pot add the garlic, anchovies, coriander and chilli.
Saute quickly.

Step 3
Then add the vongole and stir.
Put the lid on and shake the pan a few times to mix everything together.
Leave on a low heat for about 1 minute, giving the pan a shake every so often.
The vongole will open up. (The ones that don’t need to be discarded.)
