My Stir Fry

    Exciting times at Casa Ragu. I got home early and I decided to cook up a feast. But I'm all by myself :( Since I have no one to share it with, I am sharing it with all you.

    I included the following ingredients in my stir fry:
    Sliced garlic
    Sliced ginger root
    Crushed hot red pepper
    Red Korean hot sauce
    Soy Sauce
    Red peppers
    Snow peas
    Shitake mushrooms
    Regular sliced mushrooms
    Broccoli (a ton of it!)
    Cut baby corns
    Bamboo shoots
    Sliced water chestnuts
    Rice noodles (boil them while I am frying up the veggies, drain them and add them last. I leave them in just long enough to get coated)

    I stir fry in a wok and I the do ingredients in stages, depending on how quickly they cook. I add the seasoning (crushed red pepper, hot sauce, soy sauce) throughout.

    I made enough to feed an army. I'm eating it right now and it is pretty good. It's a little on the hot side, but I like it that way.

    I am open to suggestions on how I can make it better, including things I can add next time. I don't eat meat, so while I appreciate that most of you would add chicken/shrimp/beef/whatever, it isn't an option. Any other ideas?

    Nope. Then I'd have to scoop it into cardboard cartons and deliver it by bicycle to other people, along with a fortune cookie.

    Jeez. The sad thing is I have several friends who would use that one if they were clever enough to think it up.

    The stir sounds off the hook... seriously.

    You're scratching me right where I itch with the TON of broccoli ... no stir fry should be without it.

    The only thing I would add is bean sprouts, but put them in AFTER you're done cooking (last thing) because they stay crispy that way. Oh, and I use the low sodium soy sauce; I can't tell any difference.

    Drain the noodles when they're done.
    Heat the oven to 450
    Drop a handfull of noodles in each corner of a cookie sheet.
    Bake 8-12 minutes to make them crispy.
    Then either crumble the crispy noodles into the stir-fry, or place a noodle bundle on a plate and spread stir-fry on top.
    Then drizzle either with a warm soy-sauce/sugar/ginger/garlic puree.

    i like to use fish sauce or oyster sauce instead of soy sometimes.
    does that break the veggie rules?
