A bowl of noodles is always an amazing meal. This Asian-inspired pasta is packed with flavours and makes these noodles extra special.

This recipe uses a simple spring onion and thin pasta combo to make a dish. The spring onions are fried until they are crisp and just barely tender. The oil is infused with the subtle sweetness of their fresh taste. And the soy sauce with sugar just intensifies the flavour.

These spring onion noodles are made with only the cheapest ingredients, but they will fill you up and taste delicious.

Ingredients For Fried Spring Onion Noodles

  • Soy Sauce: Dark soy sauce is mainly for the coloring, which is less salty than normal soy sauce. If you don’t have it, you can substitute it with normal soy sauce for only half of the amount. The quality of the soy sauce is important for this recipe. I recommend Leekumkee soy sacue.
  • Oil: Olive oil is a healthy alternative to traditional peanut oil for most Chinese recipes. Other oils are also acceptable such as Canola Oil, Sunflower Oil or any other vegetable oil.
  • Noodles: The original Chinese recipe uses Chinese Yang-Chun noodles, but I found the texture of Angel hair pasta is equally good and they are easier to obtain.
  • Sugar: I personally don’t like the dish that is too sweet. Adjust the amount of sugar to your liking.

Recipe Notes

  • The sauce can store in the fridge for over a week and the noodles can be made quickly by just boiling them. The perfect quick meal for your busy days.
  • The white part of spring onions takes longer to cook through than the green part. I cook them separately to avoid overcooking.
