TV chef, Phil Vickery’s noodle cakes recipe uses two food cupboard staples, in sweetcorn and tuna, to make these incredibly easy noddle cakes. Ready in 30 minutes, they’re a great option for a quick dinner or satisfying WFH lunch.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4 servings


1Place the rice noodles in a large bowl and cover with boiling water, then leave for 10 minutes

2Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and sweetcorn, and cook for 10 minutes to soften and slightly brown over a high heat

3Place the well-drained tuna into a bowl along with the egg, flour and mayonnaise, then add the onions and sweetcorn

4Drain the noodles well and roughly chop with a knife. Add the noodles to the sweetcorn and tuna mixture, then mix well. Season with salt and pepper.

5Make the dipping sauce by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl

6Heat a large frying pan and add a little oil. Spoon large dollops of the noodle mixture into the pan and spread slightly. Allow to cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 4-5 minutes. Lift out each one out and keep them warm in a low-temperature oven

7Repeat the process with the remaining mixture until all of the noodle cakes are made

8Serve warm with the dipping sauce.
