Vegetable Noodles

Cooked noodles tossed with stir fried carrots , green beans , peanuts in soy sauce. Quick, healthy and nutritious dish that can be made in less than 20 minutes. Delicious and full on flavor with crunchy veggies and soft noodles.


  • 225 Grams / 8 oz Dried Egg Noodles
  • 2 Tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 2 Tablespoon roasted peanuts
  • 2 Spring onions white part chopped finely
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic crushed and chopped finely
  • 1 inch Ginger piece chopped finely
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Chilli Flakes / freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Carrots chopped finely
  • 8 green beans chopped finely
  • 2 Spring Onion Greens chopped finely
  • 1 Tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • Salt to taste


1. In a large pot bring 4 to 5 cups of water to boil. Add salt and 1 teaspoon oil. Then add the noodles and cook as per the instructions on the noodles packet. Cook noodles to al dente. I cooked my noodles for 2 minutes. Immediately drain water completely. Wash the cooked noodles under tap water for a minute to remove the excess starch. Toss 1/2 teaspoon oil in the cooked noodles. This will ensure they wont stick together

2. In a large pan, heat remaining oil. When the oil is hot, add  peanuts, spring onions, chopped garlic , ginger and fry for few seconds on high flame


3. Then add red chilli flakes and fry for few seconds

4. Add chopped carrots and green beans and fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Vegetables should remain crunchy

5. Add soy sauce and give it a stir

6. Then add cooked noodles and toss gently


7. Check for salt and add more if required

8. Garnish with spring onion greens and serve hot
