Finely chop the garlic. Thinly slice the carrot and courgette into half-moons. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Heat a large frying pan over a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the carrot and courgette until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add the Asian greens and cook, until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.


While the veggies are cooking, combine the beef mince, Thai seven spice blend, fine breadcrumbs, soy sauce, egg and 1/2 the garlic in a medium bowl. Using damp hands, take heaped spoonfuls of the beef mixture and gently shape into small meatballs. Transfer to a plate. You should get 4-5 meatballs per person.


Boil a kettle of water. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the meatballs, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Add the sesame seeds and remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. TIP: Reduce the heat to medium if the meatballs are browning too quickly.


While the meatballs are cooking, place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak, stirring occasionally with a fork to separate the noodles, 2 minutes. Drain.


Add the veggies, brown sugar and oyster sauce to the meatballs and cook until warmed through, 1 minute. Add the noodles and toss until well coated, 1 minute.


Divide the garlic and sesame beef meatball noodles with stir-fried veggies between bowls. Garnish with the crispy shallots.
