Remake :: Ginger Scallion Noodles with Chicken

ginger scallion noodles with chicken

Ginger scallion noodles will always be an all-time fave of mine (evident here, here, here, and here). I love these noodles for its simplicity and versatility. It pairs so well with anything and everything from crispy fish to fresh-baked veggies, and even by itself. I love eating ginger scallion noodles as is, but this time I paired it with some juicy pan seared chicken breasts.

UPDATE: lunch time!!

oven roasted broccoli with ginger scallion noodles

Remember Monday’s lunch? Roasting veggies and adding it to the ginger scallion noodles makes a great lunch that’s very light, refreshing, and healthy.

Growing up, my mom would always boil our veggies which of course, were very bland and unappetizing which resulted in me never wanting to eat veggies (she still does it btw). Since I started cooking (almost a year ago now), I found how amazing veggies can taste when their roasted in the oven… I haven’t tried roasting too many veggies (that’s the noob in me :), but some of my favorite vegetables to roast are carrots, asparagus, potatoes, and broccoli.

Now that it’s Autumn, I find myself wanting to peruse the grocery aisles in search for the perfect seasonal veggies for roasting.  I’ve been wanting to make oven roasted sweet potatoes! Any recommendations for me as to which veggies are perfect for oven roasting? I would love to venture out of my norm and try new things!

Below is my recipe on my how I like to roast my broccoli and here is the recipe for ginger scallion noodles (since I talk about it so much)…

Oven Roasted Broccoli

  • broccoli florets
  • olive oil
  • dried oregano
  • salt/pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Rinse broccoli, and pat dry.
  3. In a bowl, drizzle broccoli with olive oil. Season with dried oregano, salt/pepper to taste. Toss well.
  4. Place broccoli on sheet pan (don’t overcrowd it, make a single layer).
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Serve.
NOTE: for carrots, I will usually bake them for 20 minutes.
How do you bake your veggies? Do you like to incorporate other herbs and spices like pepper flakes or do you sprinkle them with cheese? I would love to know how you eat them! I am so weird like that… :)

Yum, yum, yum!!! I have never been to Momofuku Noodle Bar or New York for that matter, but I am declaring Momofuku my favorite noodle place. In fact, I want to go to New York just for the sake of eating delicious noodles! I spent a good half hour going through every pic on their Yelp page, and after a quick Google search (NSFW FOOD PORN hehe :), I am sold on Ginger Scallion Noodles! Ahhh! Me. Want. So. Bad. Don’t judge me!! I am just another girl experiencing her insane noodle cravings…

Have any of you been lucky enough to go to Momofuku? Please share so that I may gain another 5 pounds just daydreaming of all the yummy food from Momofuku that I am deprived of.
