Stir fried Noodles with Vegetables Recipe

A quick and convenient way to prepare a one-pot meal. This recipe works well with fresh wheat noodles.

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (1 lb) fresh wheat noodles or 250 g/ 8 oz dried wheat noodles
    • 3 tablespoons oil
    • 10 dried black Chinese mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 20 minutes then drained, tough stems discarded, caps sliced
    • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 2 large heads bok choy, cut in half lengthwise and chopped into 3-cm (11/4-in) pieces
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 tablespoon tomato sauce or ketchup
    • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons black Chinese vinegar

Method :

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, blanch the noodles briefly to revive them. If using dried noodles, follow the packet instructions or cooked them for 3–4 minutes until the noodles are tender. Drain, rinse in cold water and set aside to drain in a colander.
    2. Heat the oil in a wok until smoking hot, add the sliced mushrooms and garlic and stir-fry for about 2–3 minutes, then add the bok choy and stir-fry for 3 more minutes.
    3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry quickly to blend all flavors. Add the drained noodles and toss until well mixed.
    4. Transfer the noodles and vegetables to a large serving platter or into individual serving bowls and serve immediately.

Other vegetables, such as finely sliced carrot, bell pepper, celery and white onions may also be included in this dish. You may also add finely sliced chicken, in which case the chicken should be added to the wok first, followed by the vegetables. The noodles may be garnished with chopped fresh coriander or parsley and served with various table condiments, such as chili sauce on the side.
