-This is a classic takeaway dish and a classic Chinese snack – Chow mein in Mandarin Chinese is pronounced ‘Chao meean and it means ’stir-noodle’, i.e. stir-fried noodle.
I love this simple dish with plenty of fresh crunchy vegetables and the usual Chinese condiments of light soy sauce and toasted sesame oil – but the trick to getting a good-quality chow mein is in the quality of the noodle used. I use shi wheat flour noodles – ‘shi’ means ‘thin’ and whether yellow shi or white – they are easy to cook, 3 minutes in boiling water. Then all the ingredients go into a wok – couldn’t be easier or healthier!

You might need to buy:
  • dried yellow Shi wheat flour noodles* or medium egg noodles
  • dark soy sauce
  • five-spice powder
  • cornstarch
  • bean sprouts
  • light soy sauce
  • *Can be found at specialty Asian markets.

Tips: 3 cups leftover cooked Thanksgiving side vegetables can be used in place of the fresh vegetables. Recipe provided by Chef Michael Chiarello – June 2010.

You might need to buy:
  • olive oil
  • bay leaf
  • diced cooked dark turkey meat
Belongs to kylerhea Egg Fried Rice 

This light vegetarian rice can accompany any strongly flavored dishes. The inspiration behind it comes from the famous ‘egg flower’ drop soup. I thought I would adapt the ingredients to fried rice instead of soup. In fact, in Beijing the combination of egg and tomato is quite popular, such as in the dish ‘Xihongsi chao jidan’ – ‘Xihong’ means ‘Western red’, ‘Chao’ means ‘stir-fry’, and ‘Jidan’ is ‘egg’, which means ‘Western red (i.e. tomato) stir-fry with egg’. I hope you enjoy!
