B’s Vegetarian Chinese Crispy Noodles

Hello all!  Today we felt like having noodles – okay when I say we I actually mean more my husband than me.  I rather make something that would be appreciated to be eaten.  The chef needs to be appreciated.  When the eater goes hmmmm – it makes the chef feel good about the hard work that went into it 🙂  Ok – I have absolutely no idea why I’m calling myself a chef and speaking in third person today! I’m going to stop. LOL 🙂

Chinese Crispy noodles involve deep-frying and I didn’t feel like something so unhealthy so I made the exact gravy and had it with boiled noodles.  However – for those of you who want to try it crispy – you can deep fry it or acti-fry it (less oil and same result).

I loved the way it looked.

Hubby’s Chow Mein (it just looked more colourful than mine.  I DO NOT EAT CHILLI. I am Japanese at heart. Mild food = good food):

ImageDoesn’t that just look great?

Here’s a pic of all the veggies while cooking:

And a pic of my noodles, slightly less colourful in comparison but more delectable:
