Breakfast noodles

Breakfast noodles.

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast is noodles topped with tons of vegetables. 

This morning the bowl contained: one serving of egg noodles cooked al dente, green beans, mushrooms and baby bok choy.

My usual method: I cook the noodles in water till 3/4 done. Then vegetables go into the pot and simmer for about 3 minutes. I drain the noodles and vegetables and put everything back in the pot with a 1/2 cup of chicken broth. 

Then the seasonings come into play. Today I wanted a nice balance between salty and sweet so I added in 1 tsp of Hoisin sauce, 2 tsp of soy sauce and a drizzle of sesame oil.

A sprinkle of scallions and red pepper went on top.

The oil is key to making the noodles glossy and giving them a nice slide so you don't come up with a huge clump when you go to slurp them down.

Today I am going to tackle cleaning out my car which is a scary prospect.

Hopefully it will all be stuff that is easy to toss. The worst part about the de-cluttering is finding a place for the stuff that I want to keep. 

It is always much easier if I can just pitch it.

Happy Friday all!


  1. You always have some wonderful produce in your dishes. It is hard to get decent fresh produce around here! This is a great way to start the day, especially if you are going to be spring cleaning. I am doing some of that myself, but now you have reminded me the car needs it too. Have a great weekend.

  2. this looks like it would be perfect for any meal of the day!
