This dish's ingredients are basically all frozen (sausage, edamame) or dried (noodles) or nonperishable (sauces) lol. Perfect for the random days between interviews when I have to come home then jet off the next day. I arrive home to limited food, but all the ingredients and this entire dish keeps excellently in the freezer. Enjoy!
Chinese Sausage and Edamame Noodles
6 links Chinese Sausage
~2 cups egg noodles, uncooked
1 cup frozen edamame
2 teaspoons hot chili oil
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
pepper, to taste
1 bunch cilantro
On a stove, boil the chinese sausage in water in a small pot for 10 minutes, then place sausages on a rack lined with foil (save the water). Bake at 400 F in oven/toaster oven for 10 min until the outside is crispy. Cut the sausage into 1/2 slices.
Boil the egg noodles in the reserved water (now flavored with the sausage) and cook according to package directions. Once cooked, drain the noodles.
Prepare the edamame according to package directions (boil, stir fry, or microwave). Combine the noodles, sausage, and edamame with the chili oil, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and pepper. Serve warm in a bowl and top with cilantro sprigs. Enjoy!
