Second in the new series of cooking videos takes a look at another fast and simple recipe. Using the most basic of bases – noodles – we create a meal that’s hot, cheap and simple to make – fast. Staying with the theme of ‘throw anything in’ we’re going to look at two noodle based recipes – the first, below, uses simple fresh ingredients. The recipe was supplied by GSPeter from HorizonsUnlimited.
Ingredients (for 1)
- Noodles, pay a little more for good quality
- Nut Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- 1/2 Carrot, cut into thin rounds
- 1/2 Onion, thinly sliced
- 1/3 Red Pepper, cut into thin strips
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped
- Salami, very thinly sliced or chunked
Pop your noodles into a pan of boiling water, add a little salt and allow to boil for around 4 mins. Don’t boil them too long as they’ll get quite starchy quite quickly. Whilst they’re boiling prepare your veg and meat.
Cut your carrot, pepper and onion up into small slivers – the thinner the better – we’re going to be heating these through on a very high heat for a short period of time, the larger the pieces the more difficult it will be for you to heat them right through without burning them. Crush your garlic and prepare your salami, have everything to hand ready to throw in.
Remove the noodles from the pan and place to one side, preferably in something with a lid to keep them warm. Place your pan back onto the heat and turn up, pour in a little of your nut oil and heat until it starts to smoke – throw in the carrot, onions and pepper. Keep the veg moving in the pan and add your garlic. Throw in your salami and heat the veg and meat until the onion starts to go soft and turn a little brown. Take the pan off the heat and add your noodles, turn down the heat a little and place the pan back on the stove. Mix the noodles,veg and meat together until everything is nice and hot.
Remove and eat.
