(Note: This is actually a post from March that I saved as a draft and never posted. Since I came across it today, I thought I'd go ahead and publish it.)
Life has been incredibly hectic lately. Life is normally hectic, but the last few weeks have been abnormal. With vacation, visiting Boyfriend in Houston, and an unexpected trip home, I've been flying about twice a week. I haven't had much time to cook, and many of the dishes I've made lately have been sadly uninspired. BUT tonight I finally made a stir fry worth posting! This is one perfectly spicy stir fry- just spicy enough to make my nose run a bit and my lips swell slightly. It would probably make my mom cry, though, so be careful if you're not a fan of the heat and cut back on the sriracha.
Spicy Noodles with Cabbage and Edamame
Makes 2 servings
• 2 cups sliced red cabbage
• 1 cup frozen edamame
• 2 servings cooked soba noodles
• 2 tsp Asian chili oil
• 2 tbsp soy sauce
• 2 tbsp rice vinegar
• 2 tsp sriracha
• 2 tsp minced ginger
In a nonstick pan, stir-fry the cabbage and edamame in the chili oil over medium-high heat, letting the edamame and cabbage brown just slightly. Mix the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sriracha, and ginger in a small bowl. Add the sauce and the cooked soba noodles to the cabbage and edamame, and heat the noodles until they absorb the sauce.
