Recipe Tips by Maija (makes 4-6 servings)
Crispy garlic and spring onions (modified from Bon Appétit recipe - Noodelist with Garlic by Maija
4-6 Noodelist noodle cakes
1/3 cup sunflower oil
8 green onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 inch of ginger, thinly sliced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro, mint, thai basil, watercress (stems and leaves)
1 serrano chile, seeds removed, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
- Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Put aside half of the scallions in a bowl. Cook the remaining scallions, garlic, and ginger until they turn golden and crispy, for about 6-8 minutes.
- Using a sieve, pour the mixture over the scallions in a bowl; set aside the crispy bits that didn’t filter through. Mix the scallions and oil; add the remaining ingredients (except for the sesame seeds), and set aside.
- Meanwhile, make the Noodelist with Garlic noodles. When the noodles are ready, garnish with the onion/oil mixture, followed by the crispy bits. Lastly, sprinkle the sesame seeds on top and enjoy!
