Here is a tasty quick and easy vegetarian noodle recipe that’s very straightforward to make no fuss no muss! The secret is in the delicious garlic tomato egg sauce made with your basic pantry ingredients. The sweet and sourness of the ripe tomatoes, creamy eggs, and addictive garlicky aroma is a true flavor bomb hit! Paired with fresh chewy wheat noodles this dish is the definition of comfort food. Like me, you’ll be making again and again at home when you’re craving for a warm bowl of goodness.
I first had a dish like this when I went out to a local Chinese restaurant called King’s Bistro. To be honest, the dish seemed deceivingly simple…maybe a little too simple as I first thought until I took my first bite. I was like WOW, this is surprisingly tasty! I knew at that point I had to replicate it in my kitchen, hence, this recipe for you guys!
You need to get yourself a pack of fresh wheat noodles for this dish, which you can find at your local Asian grocery. The ones I used look more like udon. The other trick is to make sure you use fresh ripe tomatoes for maximum flavor. Any tomato variety should be fine but I like to use juicy and not too fleshy ones like Roma tomatoes as you need the liquid for the sauce.
This is a great simple lunch or dinner meal for any night of the week because it takes only 15 min to make. Give it a try and let me know!
