Honey Garlic Scallion Noodles

Ok, so today was a noodle kind of day. This is one of my favorite recipes for quick and tasty Asian food. I don’t need any meat to make this dish, which means most of the ingredients are non-perishable magic I can just find in my pantry when I don’t feel like shopping! Tell me that doesn’t put a smile on your face. <3


Honey Garlic Scallion Noodles

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup mirin

3 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tbsp crushed red chili pepper

please add sesame oil and chili flakes to taste. I could put a gallon of this stuff in, so choose what’s right for your taste buds 🙂

1 teaspoon sesame seeds

4 cloves finely minced garlic

1/2 cup honey

1 handful sugar (to taste)

500g chow mein noodles

1 bunch green onions (scallions) chopped

1 tsp. finely ground ginger powder

1 lime (optional)

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Bunch of cilantro

Step 1

Start boiling a small pot of water. We’ll come back to it a little later, so keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t boil over!

Step 2

Mince the garlic cloves, slice the green onion into small pieces, and chop two handfuls of cilantro.

Step 3

In a bowl whisk together the soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, crushed red pepper, honey, sugar, and ginger powder until evenly mixed.

Step 4

Heat a wok with two tablespoons of oil and begin to saute the green onions and garlic.

Step 5

Remember that boiling water on the stove from earlier? toss in about 500g of chow mein noodles and let it boil until slightly tender (usually 3 min or less).

Step 6

Toss the cooked noodles into the wok with the green onion and garlic.

Step 7

Pour the whisked mixture into the pan over a high heat and toss the noodles in it.

Step 8

Let the mixture cook while stirring the noodles often. When the sauce as soaked into the noodle and has completely evaporated, you’ll know your noodles are done!

Step 9

Serve up the noodles in bowls and top with chopped cilantro, sesame seeds and a little squeeze of lime on top. Yum!
