Veg Hakka Noodles
Hakka noddles is that popular Indo-Chinese stirfried noodle dish with a spicy kick. I maake it often enough when I have most of the ingredients. You can be relatively flexible with the combination of veggies but you almost definitely need cabbage, scallions, bok choy and .. yes, mushrooms!! It comes out real easy and only takes a few minutes to prepare. You can easily substitute angel hair pasta if you don't have the actual hakka noodles.
Spice mixture for the sauce: Soy sauce, grated ginger and garlic, rice wine vinegar, tomato paste, black pepper, sesame oil, chilli flakes. In a pinch you could add Sriracha sauce and leave out the chilli and garlic individual ingredients.
I don't have exact measurements, I sort of winged it that day. :) Sautee all the vegetables on medium-high heat and then add sauce mixture and toss with cooked noodles. Top with fresh sprouts if you have them on hand.
