Chinese noodles
19 April 2012 @ 00:17

 I'm not talking about your typical bag of maggi noodles you can buy,,,,there are always available in many supermarkets plain chineses style egg noodles 

or even in the uk stores you will find a good selection ....Have a bit of fun and buy some chopsticks aswell .

 

Ingredients 

egg noodles boiled 

fresh vegetables

carrots,onion, mushrooms ,red pepper ,broccoli  .....all sliced thin or in julienne  strips

soy sauce 

bart chinese five spice 

salt 

pepper.

nut oil or sunflower oil

(if you cant live without meat you can add chicken breast cut into strips which you flash fry first)

 

Method

I've just made this tonight and it really is one of the quickest meals you can make so long as you have all the ingredients,

first heat a little oil in a large wok or frying pan ,( if you have meat ,flash fry first to make sure it gets cooked through and add the veg all together ,the pan should be really hot and the veg should sizzle when you put it in but be careful of spitting oil).....do a 1 minute flash fry of all the veg then add your boiled noodles,give it another 30 seconds for the noodles to get well mixed in , and stir in a teaspoon of five spice and  a splash of  soy sauce ...mix well and straight of the heat and into bowls to serve  and see how you get on with the chopsticks...

buen provecho
