Having just spent a week in Hong Kong sampling all the wonderful sights and sounds of such a vibrant city and sampling some really excellent food one of the best meals I had was a simple noodle soup served after a Chinese New Year celebration meal at the home of a Hong Kong family. It was simple yet full of flavour so I tried to recreate it upon my return.
1 ltr Chicken stock - fresh homemade would be better, but I used a stock cube
1 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1 Star Anise
200g fresh egg noodles
Half a chinese leaf cabbage, sliced into chunks
3 Spring onions, sliced
Heat a little oil in a large pan and fry gently the spring onions. Add the spice and star anise, then pour over the stock. Heat through for a few minutes then add the noodles and cabbage, simmer for 3 minutes so the cabbage retains a little bite and serve.
Welcome to my cooking diary. I am a fairly good cook willing to try most things, I hope to continue to expand my repertoire and cook healthy (ish) dishes. I use this blog as a aide memoire so I don't forget what I have cooked!
