Easy Chinese Noodles

Moving is one of those things that I hate doing.  Not that you would be able to tell by the fact that I have moved 18 times in my 29 years of life.  I eagerly await the day that I have lived in one place for more than a year!

Bruce and I have unpacked and settled into our new place, and while I have made some fun new recipes (my favorite is a Lemon Cream Pie I am excited to share soon!), I have clearly not had the time to share them with all you lovely people yet.

Last night we met up with an old friend of Bruce's for dinner.  The original plan was to make Orange Chicken and Chinese Noodles, but sadly, I have not fully figured out the quirks of the ancient oven in our house, and the chicken was ruined.  So we wound up going out to eat.

The noodles however still turned out great, and made for a delicious lunch today!

These noodles are super easy to make, taking advantage of packaged Ramen noodles and doctoring them into something infinitely more delicious than they start out being.

You can add whatever vegetables you like (I have used peas and carrots, Chinese stir-fry vegetables, corn, etc...) and you can even add chicken to make it into a complete meal!

Easy Chinese Noodles


2 packs of chicken flavored Ramen noodles
1 pack of beef flavored Ramen noodles
2 Tbs sesame oil
2 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic
3/4 tsp grated ginger
1 bag frozen vegetables


Remove the seasoning packets from the Ramen and set aside.

In a medium pot, boil the Ramen for 2-3 minutes until soft.  Drain and set aside.  Return the pot to the stove and heat the sesame and olive oil.  Add the garlic and ginger and sautee for one minute.  Stir in the flavor packets.  Add the frozen vegetables and sautee until the vegetables are thawed.

Toss the noodles back into the pan and mix with the sauce and vegetables.
