Glass Noodles with Zucchini, Mushroom and Chinese Sausage
This is one of those quick things that I do up for lunch when I’m at home. This one is more like glass noodles stir-fried with whatever-I-find-in-the-fridge – typical really.
You’ll need (for one person):
- 1 Chinese sausage, sliced
- 1 small packet of glass noodles, soaked for 10 minutes in warm water*
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 1/2 zucchini, sliced
- 4 mushrooms, thickly sliced
- 1 tomato, chopped into big chunks
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp of oyster sauce
- 1/2 tbsp of fish sauce
Heat up a tbsp of oil in a hot wok and toss in the Chinese sausage slices. Stir until the sausage slices are browned. Add garlic, zucchini, mushrooms and tomato. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes until the vegetables soften.
Push the veggie aside, add a little bit more oil and crack in an egg. Wait until the egg white is almost set before scrambling it around with the vegetables. Add the fish sauce, oyster sauce, chopped tomato and the glass noodles. Stir fry until the noodles soften. Add water if necessary.
Done! Definitely one of those 10-minute ones.
* Glass noodles are thin, clear noodles made from mung beans. Start by soaking the glass noodles in warm water first before you prepare things. Don’t add boiling or hot water to the glass noodles or they will turn to mush when you attempt to stir fry them.
