For me, Thursday is that day….
You know the day…its when all the vegetables that you bought on the weekend start to look a little drab and tired.
Plus you’re starting to run a bit low and really just have bits and pieces left over from the things you have made in the week. A few beans, a small wedge of cabbage, a measly carrot….
Well here is my new standby which not only gets rid of all of those oddment vegetables but looks pretty, smells great, takes no time to prepare and tastes fab.u.lous.
World, meet my Thursday Night Noodles.
We had our first taste of these with some delicious confit duck breast but you could equally have a salmon filet, a chicken breast, some prawns, some steak or marinated tofu or you know what? The noodles are super tasty just as is.
The recipe is one that you can flex as you want. I had cabbage, carrots, red onion, coriander and snow peas and mushrooms. But you can throw in any veg you have.
I used the super yum Spice Peddler Balinese Spice Rub as my spice blend – the mix of white and black peppercorns, nutmeg, lemongrass, garlic, sugar, turmeric, sesame, onion, chilli,ea sea salt, galangal, ginger and mace is the perfect match for the South East Asian flavours I wanted this dish to have.
As in all great standby’s you can vary this in as many ways as you have imagination – the mix of veg, the spice blend, the type of noodles, the protein…use what you have; smoke ’em if you got ’em!
Speaking of which…am I ever going to be over this song? Apparently not.
So summer, so fun!
I’m going to be spending my week shakin’ it like a bad girl; have a great week whatever you do!
Oh I’ve started using the Ziplist recipe software. It should make it much easier for you to print, save and shop for the tasty delights you find on here. Use it now and make the noodles tonight…whatever night it is!
