125 g dried eggless noodles, re-hydrated as per pack instructions
350 g shop bought and prepared stir fry mix, or alternatively, a handful each of beansprouts, carrots and any other vegetables you enjoy. These should be finely sliced.
3 tablespoons groundnut oil
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
3 spring onions, chopped
For the sauce
1/2 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon black rice vinegar
1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
5 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
120 ml water
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (optional)
Chopped spring onions to garnish
In a wok or large frying pan heat the oil until it is hot. Add the garlic and ginger and stir for a few seconds, and then add the spring onions. Continue to fry for a few seconds and then add the re-hydrated noodles.
Continue to stir fry for a minute and then add the vegetables. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes for the vegetables to be heated through.
Now add the sauce, stir well to mix, drizzle over the sesame oil (if using), mix again and serve with a garnish of spring onions.
