Noodles and Vegetables with Chilli Bean Sauce

The other night I made a couple of Chinese dishes, sweet and sour pork, egg fried rice and a large bowl of noodles with vegetables in chilli bean sauce topped with pea shoots. The sauce gave it a nice sweet and spicy heat.

Noodles in Chilli Bean Sauce

Now, the noodles I must say turned out rather nice indeedy. I had a jar of chilli bean sauce and a pack of prepared stir fry vegetables which consisted of Chinese cabbage, beansprouts, sliced red onion, sliced red pepper, carrot, bamboo shoots. I also had a few pea shoots.

There's no real recipe as it's so easy and quick to make.

In a wok heat up about a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Then add the vegetables along with a little soy sauce and stir fry for about 30 seconds.

Now add the ready cooked noodles along with about 2 teaspoons of the chilli bean sauce. This sauce is hot so even I only used a small amount.

Give it all a good stir to heat through, then add the pea shoots seconds before it's all done and serve immediately. Job done!
