Singapore Noodles. Make this take out favourite at home!

One of my favourite take-out Chinese food meals is also one that we now sometimes make at home. Don’t worry though to the staff at Magic Wok, we still will have yours regularly!

You can add or modify the vegetables and meats to your own tastes. If you don’t like shrimp don’t add them.

Shrimp can be omitted for preference or allergy issues.

Substitute chopped broccoli for the green onions if you like. The recipe will be good no matter how you modify the ingredients which also goes for the chili pepper, add a little or a lot depending on your heat preference.

This delicious dish has quickly become a go-to quick meal at our house and one we all really enjoy.

Looking forward to trying this recipe, but by the amount of chopping, mincing and julienning, the prep time is likely closer to an hour than 20 minutes! We mere mortals can't move THAT fast!! :)
