Chow mein

Chowmein-tile

This is a quick supper I made from left-overs the other day (enough for two people):

  • 2 portions of Chinese noodles (I found these in the back of a cupboard – you could use any noodles or spaghetti or vermicelli)
  • oil
  • 1/2 an onion peeled and sliced (not that thinly)
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 chilli deseeded and chopped
  • 1 piece of root ginger (about 2x2cm) chopped
  • 1/2 a red pepper (any other colour would be OK) deseeded and sliced
  • 150g fresh beansprouts
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

Cook the noodles as indicated on the packaging.

Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a wok. Add the onion and stir fry for about a minute. Add the garlic, chilli and ginger and stir fry for another minute. Add the red pepper and stir fry for a further one minute. then add the beansprouts and stir fry for another minute.

Drain the noodles and add to the wok together with the soy sauce. Mix well and serve.
