Today I wanted to share a couple Asian style dishes that can be a base or addition to all sorts of meals

Recipe – Shanghai Noodles


  • udon noodles
  • 2T hoisin sauce
  • 2T soy sauce
  • 1/2T sesame oil
  • 1/2t white sugar

Step 1

In a small bowl mix together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and sugar

Step 2

Boil your noodles for 3-5 minutes or add them to a stir fry (be sure to follow directions on packaging)

Step 3

Top noodles with sauce and serve

Recipe – Bok Choy


  • baby bok choy
  • vegetable oil
  • 2t sesame oil
  • 2T water

Step 1

Wash bok choy and cut length wise

Step 2

Heat oil in your frying pan or wok

Step 3

Add book choy to pan, let it sear for a couple minutes, then add 2T water and cover to steam

Step 4

Remove lid, drizzle with sesame oil and serve


Next Steps

Now that you know how to cook these 2 dishes you can do any number of things with them.

Cook shanghai noodles as noted above and serve as a side dish or first cook chicken, pork, beef or shrimp and add noodles and veggies to make a stir-fry.

Bok choy can be served as above for a side dish, or added to a stir-fry as well.  I love serving shanghai noodles and bok choy together.
