Here’s a quick and easy noodle bowl the kids will love! You could make it with any combo of any protein you like as well as meatless “for my sister and brother” vegans. So simple and almost gourmet, well I think so, what I mean is it tastes thee bomb! Fresh cilantro just gives it an extra kick in the mouth. *side note* Fennel is reported to assist in menstrual cramps and is deemed as a symbol of prosperity in Asian cultures. Yep, two things which are important to me! Try some!
6 oz. Chow Mein Noodles
Cooked Shrimp (optional; and seriously this dish is still great without it!)
Boil 2 Quarts of water.
Use a potato peeler and peel your carrot. Cut Fennel length wise. Cut green onion.
Add Sesame oil to a hot pan add carrot, fennel. Let the veggies brown and toss in oil. Add green onion.
Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, Chinese 5 spice. Whisk well.
At this point add pressed garlic clove to the pan and stir in with veggies good. Turn your heat to medium high and add your soy sauce mixture.
Let everything simmer and get well acquainted.
Drain you chow-mein noodles. Wash in cold water. Chow-mein noodle will get sticky if you skip this step.
Now add your noodle to the pan. If you want shrimp ad your cooked shrimp at this time and toss with noodle, sauce and veggies.
Cop some fresh cilantro and garnish. Enjoy!
