I work at the University of Nevada…and we have many graduate students from around the world. The best thing about that is we have a wide variety of foods to sample! One of “my” students (am an administrative assistant that runs the department office) is from Indonesia and found out this week that I like spicy foods, so she brought in a noodle dish to share for lunch.
Below is her dish she brought in:
It’s a real simple recipe and is very “warm”…cleanses the old sinus and tastes great all at the same time! 🙂
One package of Chicken Ramen noodles. Boil the noodles. While the noodles are cooking sauté some eggs, chopped onion in a pan with some vegetable oil until tender. Add season packet, drained noodles and vegetables (she used carrots, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes), sliced chicken, and sliced Asian Chile pepper, seeds and all. You can see the pepper in the middle of the bowl (they come in dark green or red).
She had used chicken lunch meat, but last night I omited the lunch meat and had roasted chicken with the noodles as a side dish.
I used 2 packets of ramen noodles, two small crowns of broccoli, about a cup of itty-bitty baby carrots and a container of grape tomatoes. 3 Serrano chiles, one medium Vidalia onion, 4 eggs, and 3 splashes of low-sodium soy. I don’t think the serranos are as hot as the Asian chile peppers she had used, but it’s a very close second…warms the mouth, sweats the eye lids, but doesn’t drain the sinus. 🙂
Just a quick update: I put noodles in a bowl and poured boiling water over them and then set them aside.
In a pan I cooked eggs, like an omelet and then cut them up. I then added some vegetable oil, the eggs, chopped onions and sliced chile peppers to sauté. I then added the veggies, season packet, and drained noodles, a splash of soy and tossed. Cover the pan for a 2-3 minutes to steam the veggies a bit.
