dragon noodles

I know I have another recipe that is super similar to these dragon noodles somewhere on the blog. This recipe, and many variations of it, is one of my favorite quick meals to make when it’s just me.  Super easy, super delicious, and super hot.  Apparently I’m the only one who can handle hot and spicy food in this house. 🙂  This specific recipe is from budget bytes.  My only tweak was to use coconut oil instead of butter. I’ve been on quite the coconut oil kick. If you see some at your grocery store, pick it up. You won’t regret it.

You’ll need:

  • Lo mein noodles (or udon or spaghetti)
  • 1 large egg
  • tbsp butter (I used coconut oil)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sriracha, or more!
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • sliced green onions

Cook your noodles according to the directions on the package.

Prepare your sauce while the noodles boil, mixing brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriracha.

In a large skillet, melt butter/coconut oil over medium-low heat.  Whisk your egg and add to the pan.  Stir gently and cook.  Turn the heat off when done.

Drain the noodles and add to the skillet with the egg, along with the sauce.  Turn the heat on low to cook off excess sauce and toss to coat.

Serve, topped with cilantro and green onions.

 

 

The beauty of this recipe is that you can add WHATEVER you want to it.  Add some chopped peanuts, sliced chicken, shrimp, pork, more veggies (I added corn in this one).  Add in whatever you’d like!  Once you try this (or the other variation of this recipe on the blog) I know it will be in heavy rotation for your recipes.
