- 12ounces dried Chinese egg noodles (called Yee Mei) or linguine or fettucine noodles
- 2teaspoon cornstarch or arrowroot
- 2tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
- 1/3cup vegetable or chicken broth
- 1tablespoon sesame oil
- 1tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 bok choy, stems trimmed, coarsely chopped
- ground black or white pepper, to taste
- 2 callions, trimmed and chopped
You can add in other vegetables such as matchstick carrots, julienne snow peas, and/or shiitake mushrooms. You would add them in at the same time as the bok choy.
For a meat version, you can add in uncooked chicken breast or thighs cut into bite sized pieces at the same time as the garlic and onions.
The Chinese say be careful not to break any of the noodles, as this will bring bad luck.
Although longevity noodles typically use wheat-based noodles you can substitute rice noodles if you are trying to stay gluten-free. I love the Tinkyada line of rice-based pastas.
