I made two recipes from the most recent issue of Cooking Light tonight -- Char Kway Teow (Stir-Fried Noodles with Green Onions and Eggs,) and Rojak (Bright Fruit and Vegetable Salad.) The article focused on Malaysian food, which is essentially super-Asian-fusion. Tonight's dinner:
Both recipes were relatively easy to prepare, although the salad did require a bit of chopping. (Plus, jicama's just a bit tricky to peel, in my opinion.) The noodles were good -- not spectacular, but good. I definitely prefer Pad Thai over these noodles -- the Char Kway Teow is just lacking the complexity I'm used to enjoying when I eat Asian stir-fried noodles. The salad, however . . . SPECTACULAR! Spicy, sweet, crunchy, and just plain DELICIOUS! And I'm just now realizing I forgot the cucumber . . . sheesh. Oh well. I also couldn't find any fresh green beans at the store this week, so I substituted fresh snow peas -- yum!
Hm. Should I go back in and add the cucumber? I think I will! Silly Catherine.
