Sesame Noodles

I'm a recent convert to noodles; I have tended to avoid them before now for reasons of ignorance. On experimenting, however, I find they are are quick to cook and tasty to eat. And that seems like a fine recommendation to me.


1 large saucepan
1 wok
1 stirring spoon.

Ingredients - serves 1 as a main, 2 as a side.

3 plaits of egg noodles
about the same volume of beansprouts
3 tablespoons of sunflower oil
1 tablespoon of toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

optional extras: baby corn, sliced green beans, seafood medley, crushed garlic, anything else that will stir-fry.


Cook the noodles according to packet instructions (generally boiling for 3-4 minutes)
Heat the wok.
Add the sesame seeds, and dry fry for a couple of minutes.
Add the oils.
On the top level of heat, fry the seeds until they start to brown.
Add everything else, and keep stirring and frying. You really need only to heat everything rather than cook everything. It should only take a couple of minutes at most.

Serve, hot and crisp, and perhaps with a herb garnish, to your grateful family and friends.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind.
