SHE SAID: Yum! Should have added more veggies.
|Spicy Sesame Noodles|
We used the Tan Tan Ramen recipe as a guide and came up with something we really liked. It's not truly Dukan since we used some sesame oil and chili oil, but it's pretty close and we feel as long as we don't have this dish all the time, we'll be ok. This dish is probably more suitable for those in consolidation or stabilization phases.
Serves 2 or 4 as a side dish
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1/2 c. lean meat, cut into thin slices or small chunks (we used lean char siu because we already had it)
1 c. won bok (you can use any green veggie, like regular cabbage, choi sum, etc), cut into small pieces or thin slices
1 pkg. Japanese mushroom (or regular mushrooms)
2 pkgs. House Brand Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti shaped noodles (boiled in salt water for 5 minutes)
1/8 - 1/4 t. chicken base (paste or powder)
2-3 T. ground sesame seeds or sesame powder
1 T. chili oil
1 t. sesame oil
2-4 T. shoyu (soy sauce)
2 t. natural sweetener
a pinch or two kosher salt
2 T. green onions, chopped (optional)
1-2 t. black sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
In a stir fry pan or wok, on high heat, fry up your meat and veggies. Add the oils, ground sesame seeds, shoyu, natural sweetener and chicken base. Taste test. Once you have it to your liking, add in the noodles and green onions, toss, taste again. Serve with green onions and black sesame seeds as a garnish. If you prefer your noodles with more sauce, try adding chicken broth with some cornstarch instead of just the chicken base paste. The male half of this couple prefers his noodle dishes on the drier side.
