Simple Noodles with vegetables

The other day a friend of mine asked me as to why I have not been posting Kids’ recipes often. She said it is helpful for moms like her with picky eaters to get some ideas for lunch boxes or otherwise. Well, I agreed and told her that I have not been posting as I intended, which was once a month but it is just not happening.

 It is not that I don’t try some new stuff on the kiddo, but it is just the lack of time to post the recipes. Juggling between work, kiddos activities, his homework, household stuff sometimes I feel there is just not enough time. Thankfully it is not the lack of enthusiasm to post or cook so I am pretty sure that once I find time I will be posting often.

Noodles are an all time favorite of the kids and so I prepare it often. I don’t add any type of sauce in this; it is just noodles tossed with toasted garlic and vegetables. You can add or subtract vegetables of your choice

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups noodles (cooked, it is hard to give this measurement, so this is approximate)
  • ½ cup broccoli + ½ cup capsicum (any veggies of choice)
  • 2-3 spring onion finely chopped (top and white part discarded)
  • 1 small onion (chopped lengthwise)
  • 2 tsp ginger + garlic paste
  • A pinch of red chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp Crushed black pepper/pepper powder
  • 1 Tbsp Oil
  • salt to taste

Method: 

  • Boil the noodles (as per the instructions on the package) along with salt. Add 1-2 drops of oil while boiling.
  • Toward the end I add the broccoli florets and let it cook for a minute. Drain the water and keep aside.
  •  Take a big heavy bottom pan, and add oil on medium to high heat, put in the ginger garlic paste and cook until brown.
  • Start adding the vegetables, onion first sauté and then add the chopped capsicum and cook.
  •  Add the cooked noodles (along with broccoli) and mix well with the vegetables. Drizzle little oil if necessary.
  • Add the chopped spring onion. Finally add the crushed/freshly milled white or black pepper and red chilli flakes.

    What a coincidence – this is exactly what the kids are having for dinner today :) I added a bit of soy sauce + hot and sweet sauce and skipped the chilli flakes. Love that bowl.
