Food and the City: embarrassingly easy chinese noodles

embarrassingly easy chinese noodles

We're almost so embarrassed to even tell you about these.

Almost being the keyword here, since they are definitely the new candidate for our Favorite Thing To Eat, Ever. For sure.

Until our next favorite thing to eat ever comes a long, and then, well you know.

P.S I debated putting this recipe up for sooo long since they are so easy to make I almost feel like I'm insulting you by telling you how to do it. They take no effort, and they are pretty much just a redo of our favorite sesame noodles, (which p.s were also a leading candidate for our Favorite Thing To Eat, Ever).

So basically, they're really simple to make. And we hope you don't hate us for mapping this one out for ya!

Easy Chinese Noodles

1 10oz package of Chinese Noodles (we buy ours from whole foods)
1/2 t Sesame Oil
2 t Hoisin Sauce
3 t Soy Sauce
1/2 T Sesame Seeds

Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in your noodles. Chinese Noodles usually come stuck together, so gently pull them apart with a fork as they cook. Cook for 2-3 minutes, drain, then run your noodles under cold water for a few minutes to remove any extra starch. Drain any excess water.

In a small bowl, mix together your hoisin sauce and soy sauce. Set aside. Heat your sesame oil in a skillet on medium heat, then add in your noodles. Top with the sauce and sesame seeds.

Toss to coat and allow noodles to get a little crisp, about 3-4 minutes. If noodles are too dry, add in additional sauce ingredients 1/2 a teaspoon at a time.

Transfer to a serving plate and enjoy!
