Lucky Chinese Noodles

(1 Votes)
20 Min

In China, long noodles are eaten during the New Year to symbolize a wish for a long life. Whether or not you celebrate, we think everyone could agree on living a long, happy, and healthy life, which is why we've come up with our own way of making Lucky Chinese Noodles!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled, cut in half, and thinly sliced diagonally
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup sliced scallions
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti to desired doneness; drain and set aside.
  2. Add oil to the pot and saute carrots and garlic over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, or until tender. Add remaining ingredients except spaghetti, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through. Return spaghetti to the pot, gently toss until evenly coated, heat 1 to 2 more minutes or until hot, then serve. 

Other symbolic and commonly eaten Chinese New Year foods include: whole fish, spring rolls, and pot stickers!

After mixing all the ingredients, I would str fry a few minutes to let the flavors meld together.

Maybe try sesame oil with light soya sauce.
