Japanese style noodles
This is an easy, delicious and healthy noodles recipe that you can tweak to your own preferences really easily and is quick to make during the week. I prefer to make it this way:
- Wholewheat noodles
- Broth (preferably of garden herbs)
- Good soy sauce
- Edamame beans / soy beans
- Smoked salmon
- Bean sprouts
- Spring onions
- Red bell pepper
- Crispy fried onions
You start the recipe by cooking the noodles in some broth, look at the packaging how long this will take. Whilst the water is heating up, I start cutting the vegetables and the salmon. Then, you can start cooking the spring onions and bean sprouts and I add the bell pepper and the edamame beans a couple of minutes after. You only need to cook this for a few minutes.
After the noodles are done, you drain the noodles and add them to the pan with the vegetables. Turn off the heat and add a good splash of soy sauce. I personally like the saltiness, so I add quite a lot, but you can better do too little and add more later than the other way around! The reason I specified to use a more high quality soy sauce is because they generally have more taste and less salt. Since it is the main flavor of the dish, it can make a big difference in the end. Only now would I recommend adding the salmon to the dish, since you don’t want it to warm up to much.
Of course, you can switch up the ingredients to make it vegetarian or vegan, or just to have some different flavors. I also use chicken instead of salmon. I also add some diced eggplants or zucchini if I have some left. You can also eat it when it is cold, so it’s also a great lunch!
You can now start to plate the dish. I would recommend serving it in bowls instead of plates. Some soy sauce will drip off, which might spill if you hold your plate a little sideways. When it is in the bowl, you sprinkle some fried onions on top. Now, you are ready to eat!
I hope you like this quick and easy dish. What would you add to the noodles?
Lots of love,
