Noodly Dinner

This recipe has evolved in our family over the years and is affectionately known as the Noodly Dinner.  It is perfect for adding veges to your childrens diet and introducing some Asian style flavours.

Noodly Dinner

Serves six people


1kg of egg noodles
4 eggs
a handful of meat (chicken, beef, today I used leftover ham)
1 large carrot grated
1 green capsicum cut into bite size pieces
1 cup of of frozen peas
2.5 cm of freshly grated ginger (I store my ginger in the freezer)
2 Tbs of soya sauce
2 tsp of sesame oil


  • Pre cook the noodles as per package
  • Wisk the eggs in a bowl until well beaten.  Heat a fry pan with a spray of oil.  Cook the eggs like an omlette.  Remove from pan when cook and when cooler to touch cut into bite size pieces.
  • Cook meat through then remove from the heat.
  • Put all the veges and grated ginger in the fry pan which has been sprayed with oil.  Cook until meets your taste, we like it just a little crunchy but you might like it really soft.
  • Finally mixed all the veges, egg, meat, soya sauce and sesame oil together in a large bowl. 
  • Serve and enjoy.
