I love instant noodles!
Especially the spicy Korean kind, with an extra semi-cooked egg, it's divine!
Sadly we can never get all the good things in life,
Some instant noodles are heavenly, but they can also be a be a huge headache for our health,
Processed food, yes; overly-salted, yes; and most of the noodles are fried....
Not sure if it's the case for you, I also get pimples after instant noodles...
Worst nightmare ever!
As a result, I shuffled all the instant noodles away and came up with this recipe -
Ingredients (for one)?
Noodles for one serving
(Chinese yellow/oil noodles preferably, otherwise use something that is thin and round)
2 tablespoons of oyster sauce
2 tablespoons of soup base (flavored soy sauce)
1 tablespoon of black vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of chili sauce/sriracha sauce
Few drops of sesame oil
Super duper easy recipe,
Just cook the noodles till desired hardness,
Even for Asian dishes, I still like mine "al dente."
In the mean time, pour in all the remaining ingredients in the serving bowl,
Once the noodles is done, drain it and mix well with the sauce,
You can definitely adjust the seasoning according to your preference,
Sometimes I made it extra sourish and spicy, the noodles were like coated in chili sauce...
This dish only takes few more minutes than instant noodles,
Plus you can jazz it up by adding sliced scallions, toasted sesame seeds, fried shallots, or my favorite > semi-cooked egg!
Farewell my instant noodles pimples!
