Meals for the homeless – simple stir fry noodles with bacon, leek and carrot

Posted on Updated on

Fried noodles is one of those ‘as you please’ dishes and you can add whatever ingredients you like.  For the weekly homeless feed, I like to compliment main dishes with a simple noodle dish.  Every week I change the ingredients to please our friends’ taste buds.

This week I made a noodle stir fry with bacon, leek and carrot.

Simple fried noodles with bacon, leek and carrot

Method is as follows:

Simple fried noodles with bacon, leek and carrot

Ingredients

  • fresh or dried noodles, quantity to your liking
  • leek, green or white part, sliced, quantity to your liking
  • rashers of bacon, sliced, quantity to your liking
  • carrot, skin peeled, julienne, quantity to your liking
  • a few splashes of dark soy sauce
  • salt, white pepper (optional)
  • sesame seeds, toasted
  • sesame oil
  • cooking oil

Method

  • Cook noodles per instruction on the package; add salt to the water if the noodles are not already salted; once the noodles are cooked, drain in a colander and run noodles under cold water until the noodles are completely cooled; use scissor to cut noodles to shorter length (so it is easier to stir fry); add a splash of dark soy sauce and a splash of sesame oil; mix well – so the noodles won’t stick together.
  • In a frying pan, bring some cooking oil to high heat; add bacon, saute briefly until the bacon is cooked; add leek, saute briefly, add carrot, saute briefly; add noodles, toss briefly; add another splash of dark soy sauce and white pepper. Dark soy sauce is not that salty and it is great for adding aroma and color.
  • Turn off heat; add sesame seeds and toss; ready to serve.
