QUICK BREAKFAST NOODLES



Hi everyone! Here's a quick post of some breakfast noodles. It is simple and uses dried prawns as the main flavour base with added bean sprouts and chives for added flavour and texture.


And crushed bird's eye chillie fo a nice kick. Yum!

I made this on the same day that I made the hot sauce.


I used skinny noodles from a packet (horrors) but it did have a few NO'S on the packet.....like NO preservatives, NO MSG, No Colouring. I suppose that's as close to homemade as I can get. 


I'm out of steam, out of energy and out of time these past few days. I need to get working on those cookies. And I think I'm in  need of a plan just so I can carry out my plans.



 The recipe ~


This noodle dish is so simple yet so full of flavour and makes a nice filling breakfast, lunch, snack or even dinner.


2 squares of skinny noodles

6-7 pieces dried prawns, soaked in water for about 10 minutes
2 pips garlic
2 bird's eye chillies or a large chillie pepper
a handful of bean sprouts
a handful of chives
dark soy sauce
salt 
cooking oil


Blanch noodles in boiling water until it softens and is cooked through.It won't take long depending on the noodles that you are using.

Pound dried prawns, garlic and chillies in a pestle and mortar until fairly fine.

Heat a wok and pour in about 2 tablespoons of oil and then saute the pounded ingredients until fragrant and the paste looks a little golden at the edges. 

Throw in the noodles, bean sprouts and the chives and some soy sauce and the salt. Give it a stir to mix them all up well and evenly. You may add some water if it too dry. Serve with garlic ginger chillie hot sauce and a wedge of lime. Enjoy!

What a great and easy recipe! Whenever I get a microwave, I'll make this the night before to heat up in the morning - it's still too much work for me when I've half asleep!

zurin,
This noodles looks so nice and satisfying! I would truly like to have a few bowls of it, and skip my lunch and dinner! Heehee...

Zurin, it is totally ok to use the skinny noodle from the pack - it is what we call egg noodles, I believe. Not the same as those instant noodles - no instant noodles would look this scrumptious- that's for sure!

Thanks for a fantastic submission. Wish someone else would whip these up for me in the morning (I'm so not a morning person!).

Good luck with all the plans.

What a refreshing choice of breakfast! I never eat noodle for breakfast in the US, but when I travelled in China, the hotels always provide both Asian and Western breakfast options and it's so cool to eat noodle, steamed buns and drink soymilk for a change.
