After a busy day what sounds better than some yummy fuss free noodles? I love a chinese takeaway but sometimes the budget just doesn’t stretch enough for it. This quick and easy recipe takes around 15 minutes to cook and tastes delicious.
yummy fuss free noodles for a quick & easy ‘fakeaway’ meal
Now this won’t taste exactly like a chinese takeaway but it is a good frugal alternative! You might also be able to make these yummy fuss free noodles quicker than it would take to get a takeaway. I use up any veg we have that needs eating up or that I find reduced so you can switch things to suit you.
Serves 2- This made enough for 2 but could easily be bulked out with more veg, extra noodles or some meat.
What you’ll need
- Noodles – I was lucky enough to be sent some Yutaka Gluten free noodles so I used one packet in this dish.
- A saucepan – to cook the noodles
- Any veg you need eating up, sliced – I used a bunch of reduced spring onions and a carrot for mine but you could use onions, bean sprouts, carrots, courgettes, peppers, cabbage etc.
- 1 clove of garlic, chopped.
- A knob of fresh ginger, chopped – roughly 1cm x 2cm if you have it.
- Hoisin sauce
- Soy sauce
- Sunflower oil
- Sesame oil (optional)
- A wok or frying pan
- Cook your noodles to packet instructions.
- While your noodles are cooking heat a little oil in the wok. You can add meat at this point but as I have been taking part in Veganuary I obviously didn’t.
- When the oil is hot add in the garlic, ginger and veg and turn the heat down a little so the veg doesn’t burn.
- When the noodles are cooked, drain and toss in a little sesame oil (or sunflower oil if you don’t have sesame) so the noodles don’t stick together.
- Add the noodles to the veg in the wok and toss together until nicely combined.
- Finish off the noodles with a little (or a lot) of hoisin sauce and soy sauce. Give it a final toss together and serve.
