Stir-fried Noodles with Bok Choy

Stir-fried Noodles with Bok Choy

This noodle recipe is simplicity at its best. Soft egg noodles, crunchy bok choy, yellow egg, salty soy and spicy chilli – heavenly flavours that all work so well together. Oh and it doesn’t matter if you use Pak Choi instead – whatever you can find on the day will be perfect!

I can eat great mounds of these delicious noodles on their own, generally doused in more of my favourite chilli sauce. But, it is also a superb side dish for roast meat, fish or any stir-fry. It goes particularly well with my stir-fried pork with ginger and spring onions.

Stir-fried Noodles with Bok Choy

Serves 4

200g/7oz medium egg noodles
235g/8 ½ oz. bok choy, roughly sliced
2 tbsp. groundnut oil
2 eggs, whisked together
3 tbsp. chilli sauce
3 tbsp. light soy sauce

1. Cook the noodles in boiling water as directed on the packet. Add the bok choy for the last 3 minutes of cooking. Drain in a colander and roughly chop the noodles with a knife to help them mix together better when stir-frying and set to one side

2. Heat a wok over a high heat until smoking. Add the oil, swirl round and add the egg. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until scrambled. Chuck in the cooked noodles and bok choy and pour in the chilli sauce and soy sauce. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes so the noodles and bok choy are completed coated in the sauces and everything is warmed through. Serve immediately with more chilli sauce at the table!

Goes really with my stir-fried pork with ginger and spring onions
