Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French. Sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek. Soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good. Cite Arrow

Raw Chinese Comfort Home Noodles

More kelp noodle recipes. I figure if you add enough ginger, garlic, sesame, and shoyu, you can make almost anything palatable. ;-) I don’t know what kind of chile pepper is intended, so experiment to see what you like.

From Gone Raw.

i was craving some noodles since its chinese new year at the moment. its a tradition in my family to have stir fryed glass noodles on a sunday. they are so aromatic, one whiff, and a gallon of drool comes out. its quite a clean flavour though, so do adjust to your liking. im kinda glad there are so many asian recipes that make you feel light and clean! i kinda altered it to make it authentic…hmm. if you cant find kaffir lime ( asian store), then quarter lemon mixed with half lime will do.


1 packet opf kelp noodles, soak in warm water for 20 mins
1 clove garlic, minced, chop fine
1 knob of ginger, minced, chop fine
1 knob of ginger, minced, chop fine
1 large chilli, deseeded, chop fine
small red onion, chopped roughly
cilantro, chopped roughly
flax oil
salt and pepper, to season
kaffir lime, to squeeze


drain the noodles

put in all the flavas: chilli, onion, ginger, chopped cilantro.

drizzle flax oil, or sesame oil can be a subsitute. a bit of raw honey can go in if you like the sweet sour tang.

mix it up.

season to your liking

squeeze in kaffir lime to your taste. cos everybodys unique. i put in lots, but go easy if its your first time. the peel is also fantastic.

happy chinese new year.
