Ingredients

  • 10 oz (300 g) dried Asian egg noodles
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground pork
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 fresh red chili, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 lb (250 g) shiitake mushrooms (or white mushrooms), woody stems discarded, thinly sliced
  • 1 package (1 L) Compliments Organic Baby Spinach
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) hoisin sauce
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) Asian chili oil
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) Compliments Unsalted Dry Roasted Peanuts, chopped

Method

  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook ground pork, garlic and chili 3 to 5 min., breaking up pork, until the meat starts to brown. 
  2. Stir in mushrooms and spinach. Cook 2 to 3 min., or until greens are tender. Mix in noodles, soy sauce, hoisin, chili oil, sesame oil and rice vinegar. Cook, stirring, 3 to 5 min. until noodles have absorbed the sauces and oils. 
  3. Sprinkle with green onions and peanuts to serve.

Tips:
The dried Asian egg noodles are sold in cellophane-wrapped packs of square "nests". Or substitute the egg noodles with angel hair pasta.
Use other boxed greens such as baby kale or arugula. Or add chopped full size greens such as chard or bok choy.
