Ginger Scallion Noodles - Easy, Cheap, Delicious!
On the one hand, you can try to glamorize the dish all you want and go all Top Chef on it but I say, just keep it simple and enjoy it for what it is. For my version, I am pairing it with some leftover wantons which had I made the day before. Put on a pot of water and depending on how hungry you are, boil one or two packets of ramen noodles. Throw the little sachets of seasoning away.
On a plate, mix together:
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1/2 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger
1-2 stalks of scallions (cut into small segments) - for garnish
When the noodles are cooked, remove from the pot, drain the excess water and just add it to the plate with the ingredients above already mixed together. Garnish with the scallions and maybe if you like it a little spicy, sprinkle some chili flakes or even some pickled peppers or jalapenos. That's it, really. Simple, no?
