Although dining out in local restaurants in China is very cheap, yet convenient and quick, we still enjoy our time in the kitchen trying to make our own favourite Chinese dishes. One of them is stir-fried Chinese egg noodles – healthy, delicious and simple to make in just 10 minutes. If you are a big fan of budget cooking, but don’t want to skimp on nutrition, you should definitely try this recipe.
Stir-fried Chinese egg noodles:
Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Level of difficulty: Easy
- 100g pack of medium egg noodles
- 2 tbsp of vegetable/coconut/olive oil (depending on your preference)
- small piece of fresh chopped ginger and parsley
- 2 garlic chopped cloves
- a half of grated carrot
- 1 tbsp of chili sauce
- 1 yellow chopped pepper
- 50g of mangetout, sugarsnaps or frozen peas
- 2 spring onions, finely chopped
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp white wine vinegar
- 2 whole eggs
*The choice of vegetables, herbs and spices is up to you. If you don’t like carrots, put some raw pumpkin (grated or sliced), spinach or broccoli instead. If you like it spicy, add more chili. You can be very adventurous with ingredients here which we love about this dish. We sometimes add some mushrooms, peanuts and pumpkin seeds.
- Cook the noodles first according to pack instructions (it usually takes us about 3 minutes to do it).
- Get your frying pan/wok ready and heat the oil.
- Stir-fry your eggs and add cooked noodles, mix together for 1 minute.
- Add the ginger, garlic, carrot, pepper and other vegetables of your choice, fry at high temperature for 2-3 minutes.
- Mix together the soy sauce and vinegar, stir into the pan, then cook for 1-2 mins.
- Divide between individual plates or bowls and serve immediately.
