These Easy Asian Noodles are so good! A healthy, vegetarian recipe made w/ whole wheat pasta & over easy eggs! They’re easy, tasty & better than delivery!
You can thank my (very, very rare) self control for this recipe. Last weekend, Trevor and I went downtown to check out the tailgating scene in Madison. We had a blast. The weather was perfect, the atmosphere was buzzing (literally 😉 ), and we had so much fun walking around checking out the different bar/restaurant scenes.
We got home later in the afternoon, made a batch of puppy chow – I had a serious craving – and sat down to relax and watch our latest obsession, Project Runway.
Soon enough we were hungry for dinner and I had z.e.r.o. motivation to make dinner. Trevor offered to order some Chinese food, but I resisted ( 😱 say whaaaat?!) and said that I’d just whip something up.
I needed something fast, something easy, something Asian inspired, and something noodle-y.
Oh, and something with minimal ingredients, because I yet again avoided going to the grocery store.
Welcome to the world, Easy Asian Noodles.
These Easy Asian Noodles are perfect for those nights when you seriously need something quick, easy, humble, comfy, and cozy.
This recipe is quick and easy, because all you need to do is whisk together a sauce, boil some noodles, and cook a few over easy eggs. Seriously easy. Right?
These Easy Asian Noodles, while being quick and easy, are definitely not lacking in the flavor department thanks to the 2.5 second sauce we’re making. Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sriracha, brown sugar, ginger, red pepper flakes, and garlic for a flavor bomb of a sauce. It’s a little sweet, a little salty, a little spicy, and a just a little, um, perfect.
That sauce + whole wheat noodles and I thought I was in heaven, but then I wanted a little more protein, so I thought, let’s top it with an egg. I mean, why not, right?
Do not skip the egg. It was a last minute addition to these Easy Asian Noodles, but it’s the best part. It’s warm, it’s ooey-gooey-yolky…it’s just yum.
That’s it! Sauce, noodles, eggs and you’re on your way.
And I have to say, it really satisfied my Chinese delivery craving, but these noodles are
1. A heckofalot cheaper
2. A heckofalot more delicious
Trevor and I both went back for seconds… and I made it again the next night.
I love these Easy Asian Noodles because they’re quick and easy (did you get that – these are QUICK and EASY 😉 ), but also because I always, always, always have these ingredients on hand. If you like cooking with Asian flavors at all, you probably have soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil in your kitchen, and I’m guessing most of you have a box of pasta and eggs hiding in there somewhere.
A simple, humble, noodle-y dish that really packs punch, will keep you cozy this fall season, and truly satisfies any dinner craving.
