Broccoli with noddles


This is a recipe I’ve tested while thinking about to eat the broccoli just boiled, I’ve start to check out other ingredients and try, and finally I’ve get a good result, so I’m sharing it with you.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

  •  300 gr of broccoli
  • Noodles
  • Garlic
  • 2 red onions (just 1 if it is big)
  • Ginger

Start chopping this garlic without bulb. Cut red onion on half, and then cut onto stripes, but not too thick. Peel and grate a piece of ginger. You can also use already crushed and packed ginger.

On a pot with boiling water and salt and then the broccoli. Cook broccoli for 7 minutes and then add the noddles, cook them together for 3 minutes, strain and reserve.

Add olive oil in a wok, and when the oil is hot add the garlic, the onion and salt. Cook for 2 minutes while continuously stirring. Add soy sauce and cook 30 seconds without stopping to stir. Finally add the noodles and broccoli cooking all together for 2 minutes while stirring.

Oriental beef soup

For sure this recipe would like Sheldon Cooper and his colleagues, as far as they seem to like a lot every kind of oriental food.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

  • 1 onion
  • Less than half green and red pepper
  • A piece of ginger
  • 400 gr beef
  • Soy souce
  • Oyster sauce
  • Dried mushrooms
  • Some brean spouts
  • Noodles

Put dried mush rooms on a bowl with 1 litre of warm water for 2 hours or more, take off the mushrooms and drain the water to use later.

Cut the onion in cubes. Cut less than half green and red pepper in small cubes. Peel the ginger and grate it.

Put a bit of olive oil on the wok and when it’s hot add the beef cut in thin stripes, and add some salt. As we are cooking on a wok the fire must be set at maximum and we will be constantly stirring. Cook the beef for 5 minutes.

Reserve the beef, put oil in the wok and when it’s hot add the onion, peppers, brean spouts, mushrooms and some salt. Stir it for 3 minutes.

Now we add back the beef, grated ginger, soy sauce and oyster souce. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the water used to hydrate the mushrooms. When the water starts to boil add the noddles, cook them 4 minutes and shutdown the fire.

Be careful when eating because it will be really hot, better take some time before eat.

Chicken with cashews

Ingredients (for 2 people):

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 onion
  • ½ green pepper
  • ½ red pepper
  • Soy sauce
  • Ginger
  • 70 gr cashews

Start cutting the chicken breast in cubes, first cut it in stripes and then cut the stripes in cubes. Add salt and pepper to the cut chicken breast. Cut less than ½ green and red pepper in small cubes. Cut 1 onion in cubes, to cut this way cut first in 4 pieces vertically and then horizontaly again 4 times turn 90 degrees and cut again in 4. Peel a piece of ginger and then grate it, if you don’t find ginger you can buy bottled in the spices section.

Add a bit of oil in a wok, when the oil is hot add cut chicken breast, with the wok always work with fire set at maximum and always stiring. Stir the chicken for 5 minutes and reserve it for later.

Put again oil in the wok and add the vegetables and add salt. Stir for 4 minutes. Then add the chicken breast, I add the cashews now but it’s better to add them at the end, add also soy sauce and the grated ginger. Stir for 2 minutes and the recipe is ready.

As said before is better to add the cashews at the end so they will be crisp. If you plan to bring this in a tupper to work, then add the cashews after warming the recipe in the microwave.
