Mi Xao Chay Recipe (Vegetarian Soft Egg Noodle Stir Fry) Recipe

I love making noodle stir fry. It may seem a little complicated but if you're methodical, you'll be able to master this dish in no time. What makes this noodle dish special is the use of pineapple both as an ingredient and as a seasoning for the noodles themselves.

First, I prepared the green bean and tofu stir fry and set it aside. The next step is boiling the fresh egg noodles, then cooking the pineapple (trái  khóm in Vietnamese) in a thick sweet and sour sauce. Finally, all you need is to toss the noodles in the sauce and add the tofu and green beans.

Hakka Noodles in Lettuce Cups

03.25.13 by Jackie

We just purchased the tickets for our next trip to Paris. My best friend Alexia is getting married and I wouldn't miss it for the world. For this reason, my husband Lulu and I have committed ourselves to looking good and being healthy for the occasion. I've controlled the portion size of our meals and we work out as often as we possibly can. This morning, Lulu woke up early to play football with friends and while he was busy during his game, I whipped up a light meal for him.

I tossed hakka noodles (vegetarian wheat noodles made without eggs) with mock ground meat, julienned carrots, bell peppers and yellow onions. I served them at room temperature in lettuce cups and added sweet potato shoestrings as a crunchy garnish. Whenever I make a dish, I try to balance the textures and colors, which I find key to the success of any meal. The sweet potato shoestrings, in particular, are extremely versatile and can be used as the crunchy element in many savory dishes. They didn't quite make my first cookbook, Haute Potato, but I still highly recommend trying them. You'll end up eating them by the handful!

As I mentioned last week, I will be posting a vegetarian dish on "Meatless Mondays" and a scrumptious dessert for the weekend. I figure one will cancel out the other. Last weekend I shared a Meyer lemon mousse in wonton cups, and this week, well you'll just have to come back on Friday and see!

Mi Xao Ca Ri Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Stir Fry Recipe) Recipe

We had Vietnamese chicken curry earlier this week, so I used the leftovers to make this delicious chicken and tofu dish (mì xào cà ri gà). I have an aversion to wasting food, but that doesn't mean that the second life you breathe into a dish has to be any less wonderful than the original creation.

I shredded the chicken from the curry dish and made a stir-fry adding cubed tofu and vegetables available this season. To complete the meal, I added egg noodles. The dish couldn't be simpler to make, and it will work whether you have meat, poultry or seafood.

Mi Xao Don Recipe (Vietnamese Crispy Noodles) Recipe

xào dòn is a Vietnamese noodle specialty. Egg noodles are deep-fried until crispy, then softened in a thick sauce. This time, I sautéed chicken, young bamboo shoots and a few vegetables. Of course, I set aside some without chicken using vegetable syock for the vegetarians in my house.

I've been cooking egg noodles using a variety of techniques lately. I recently served them tossed in peanut salad dressing, in duck broth soup and simply sautéed along with vegetables. This crispy version is definitely the most time-consuming, but once in a while our family enjoys this special meal.

Asian Noodle Salad with Peanut Salad Dressing Recipe

We went to a potluck this weekend, and I brought along an Asian-inspired salad. I wanted to serve it as a main dish, so I made a pasta salad loaded with tofu and vegetables. But instead of using regular pasta, I used thin egg noodles. I mixed a myriad of vegetables such as crimini mushrooms, baby zucchini, cauliflower, bok choy, sugar snap peas and pickled red peppers with fried, cubed tofu. To finish the dish, I covered it in a delicious peanut dressing made of peanut butter, chili garlic sauce, sugar cane vinegar and ponzu soy sauce.

This cold Asian noodle salad can be prepared hours in advance, making it perfect for picnics and potlucks. Just leave the peanut salad dressing on the side and mix right before serving.
