Black Sauce Noodles with Fried Garlic
Noodles can NOT be made any simpler and any more delicious. This idiot proof recipe for black sauce noodles with fried garlic and spring onions is my go-to recipe for a quick lunch on busy days when there are a butt-load of chores to be done and, dirty and hungry children to clean and feed, or on lazy days when all I want to do is anything that does not result in me slaving over the stove with sweat dripping down my forehead. It is unbelievably quick (all you need is 10 minutes or less!), made with only 3 main ingredients, mad simple and insanely yummy.
I love noodles - I can eat noodles everyday and done in every way possible. For myself, the key to what makes a bowl of noodles extra delicious is how the noodles are cooked, and it is when the noodles are cooked to a perfect al dente - a little springy and just slightly hard in the middle - now that is when, BAM!, this is a good day because I have a perfect bowl of noodles to devour.
When cooking your noodle of choice for this black sauce noodles, take note to watch your noodles as they are cooking, even the mere 10 seconds of over-cooking will ruin the whole dish. What I do is I let it cook for at least a minute and a half in boiling water, then I will taste a bit of the noodles every 15 seconds after that and when it is perfect, I turn off the heat and remove the noodles from the pot and into a strainer immediately.
This really is a wonderful dish for busy days and it also is a great addition to any bento lunch box as it tastes great even when cold. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does!
