I have decided on Lo Mein.
Seems easy enough to make.
This is the recipe i am using. Alternatives or additions are appreciated.
Lo Mein (Prep/Cook Time is approximately 20 minutes)
Serves 3-5 (depending on what you call a serving size)Ingredients & Equipment
1 Large saucepan
1 sharp knife to prep ingredients
2 boxes of wheat spaghetti or fettuccine noodles
3 tablespoons of peanut oil
4 cloves of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger (sliced)
1 tablespoon of ginger powder
2 carrots, sliced diagonally in ¼-inch pieces
2 golden delicious apples sliced into bite-sized cubes
4-5 stalks of bok choy " slice the stalks into bite-sized pieces and separate from the leaves, cut up the leaves, too.
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of caraway seeds
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
2 teaspoons of pepper
1 pinch of salt
1 tablespoon of brown sugar (optional)Directions: Heat water in a large saucepan until boiling. Boil noodles for five minutes and drain in a colander. While the noodles are boiling heat the peanut oil in the wok on medium or medium high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and ginger powder and allow it to cook in the oil for a minute. Add the carrots, bok choy stalks, and apples with the pepper and salt; make sure they get well coated in the oil, cooking for a minute or two. Turn down the heat to medium or medium low and add portions of the noodles a bit at time. Each time you add the noodles, add a bit of soy sauce, caraway seed, and sesame oil. Keep doing this until you have all the noodles in the wok and mixed well so all the ingredients are mixed well and the noodles shine from the coating of sesame oil. Turn the heat down to low add the sliced bok choy leaves and the brown sugar, and mix well. Remove from the heat and serve in bowls with a bottle of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce if someone eating this concoction wants some heat.
I plan to add snow peas to the mix as I like them. Not sure about the apples. Oh! and I am going to try to get lo mein noodles instead of spaghetti if such a thing exists.
