Caroline's Crunchy Vegetable Spicy Noodles
Memories of the flavours of New York: incredibly fragrant street food, vegetables, colours, spices and, above all, hot noodles to be sucked in while making a lot of noise, the complete opposite of what we were taught!
This recipe is very quick and easy to make, full of flavour but also full of vitamins as it is full of crunchy vegetables.
Instead of buying ready-made noodles, we invite you to make them yourself. This recipe, full of flavour and smell, will be a real pleasure to cook. Ideal for a romantic dinner by the fire or a Sunday evening TV dinner. One thing is certain, this recipe will awaken your senses!
And because it's always good to remember why vegetables are so good, here's some information: carrots have super antioxidant power. Broccoli is rich in vitamin C and fibre. Miso is a great source of vegetable protein. In short, these spicy noodles are a nutrient powerhouse to boost our metabolism.
What you need for 2 people:
- 2 blocks of classic noodles (make sure you get traditional ones that won't break during cooking: the pleasure of eating noodles also comes from those long, endless strands that dip from the broth into our mouths!)
- 2 carrots
- 4 button mushrooms
- 1/4 broccoli
- 1 sprig of lemongrass
- 1 vegetable stock
- 1/2 inch ginger
- 1 tablespoon miso paste
- 1 bunch of coriander
- 1 bunch of basil
- 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon of Sriracha sauce for the wild ones (be careful, it stings)
Start by preparing the stock: cut the lemongrass into large pieces and then in half lengthways to release as much of the flavour as possible. Peel the ginger and cut it into four pieces.
Steep the lemongrass, vegetable stock, miso paste and ginger in hot water for about 15 minutes.
For the more adventurous, you can also add a teaspoon of Sriracha sauce to spice things up.
In the meantime, chop all the vegetables: cut the carrots into thin strips using a vegetable peeler. Cut the mushrooms into large pieces and the broccoli into small florets. Chop the coriander and basil.
And to give you an eyeful:
You know that at Three Seven Paris, the container is as important as the content. That's why we created our Noodles bowls. Round, generous and with a high neck, they fit in the palm of your hands to enjoy a good broth without overflowing, even if we are overflowing with love for them.
Discover our Noodles patterns and Noodles Shades on our website.
Add the vegetables: when you are ready to eat, add the noodles to the hot broth. They cook very quickly. When one side of the block softens, turn it over. When they start to fall apart, add the carrots, broccoli and mushrooms. Stir so that the vegetables are well soaked and cook for 3-4 minutes to keep them crisp.
The round shape of our Noodles keeps the heat in. The broth, vegetables and noodles continue to cook slowly in your bowl.
Presentation: Pour the noodles into your bowl. Add the coriander and basil generously. Then add the lime.
And for the wild ones, you can add a few final touches of Sriracha sauce.
All you have to do is enjoy!
