Sesame Ramen Noodles
|4|| ||3-oz packages ramen noodles|
|2|| cups ||frozen mixed vegetables|
| ||water for boiling|
|3|| ||beaten eggs, optional|
|10|| tsp ||sesame oil|
| 1/4|| tsp ||crushed red pepper|
|8|| tsp ||soy sauce|
|4|| tsp ||sugar|
|2|| ||ramen flavor packets|
| ||vegetable oil for frying|
Bring some water to boil in a large pot. Add frozen vegetables and return water to the boil. Add noodles and cook for a little less time than suggested on the package. Drain the noodle/vegetable mixture.|
In a wok or large frying pan, heat a little vegetable oil over medium heat. If using eggs, add them and fry, stirring and breaking up large pieces as they form until lightly cooked. Add noodles/vegetables, sesame oil and red pepper. Fry for a few minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and continue frying and stirring a few more minutes. Serve hot.
Notes: Remaining ramen flavoring packets may be saved for other purposes. Fresh vegetables may be substituted for the frozen ones. I usually use frozen just because it's quick and easy.
