Our weekend was in symbol of simple cooking – no more than 5 ingredients. Actually, I has been idea of my husband. As I tend to go to the gym few times a week in the evening I do not usually cook afterwards (or at least nothing difficult and fancy) and most of the time we have sandwich or quesadilla. So, my husband ordered a cookbook with 5 main ingredients recipes. It is actually very interesting and I wanted to prepare pasta with 5 ingredients and then I saw the recipe and “I am missing 4 of them” 😀 Well… so improvisation has started and here we go with noodles.
What do you need:
750 g noodles (which ever you prefer – I have gone for rice noodles)
350 g spinach
150 g ham or bacon
250 g mushrooms
seasoning – curry powder, turmeric, salt and pepper
Easy, tasty, quick… those are words for this dish and busy mummies. Firstly, take a big pan (for example Wok) and add oil, spinach, ham or bacon together with sliced mushrooms. Heat it up and fry it approximately 10 – 15 minutes. When are mushrooms ready, take everything out, so just a bit of oil stays in the pan. If you do not have enough of oil, add slightly more together with curry and turmeric powder (1 tea spoon of each). Fry 2 minutes and add 3 eggs. Fry until done. Afterwards, add spinach and everything what was previously fried in the pan and do not forget to put noodles as well. I have chosen this time rice noodles which were not necessary to boil. However always double check with recommendations on the package as you may cook them before adding them into the pan. So then, I fried everything together for 7 minutes and at the end add 2 left eggs and stir everything together, However, do not fry too long as you want to have nicely creamy noodles.
And then… just eat and who needs, you can season is with salt and pepper at the end and maybe top with parsley? 🙂
