A simple dish to prepare, I want to share it with Bon Teavant friends. The traditional dish consists of rice noodles or wheat noodles, tea oil and scallions, with a pinch of salt and pepper. I like eating this as a whole meal, so I like to add a bit of asparagus and red bell pepper. Fried tofu, meat or shrimp would also go well with this dish if you need protein in a meal.
Here is the recipe:
4 cups cooked wheat noodles or rice noodles
1/4 cup tea oil
scallions, chopped (use both white & green part)
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
5-6 stalks asparagus, cut in 2" pieces
salt or soy sauce
red pepper flakes
In a saute pan, add 1 tbs tea oil. When hot, add white parts of scallions and red pepper flakes, stirring for a minute. Add red bell pepper and asparagus, stir for another two minutes and remove from heat. Add noodles and remaining tea oil, stirring to combine. Add salt and pepper or soy sauce to taste and top with the remaining green parts of the scallions.
Note: We use Arette Organic Tea Seed Oil.
Note2: Use only tea seed oil, and never use tea tree oil, which is an essential oil and should not be ingested in any quantity.
