⅓ cup bean sprouts, julienned
⅓ cup jumbo carrot, julienned
⅓ cup Spanish onion, julienned
⅓ cup shiitake mushrooms, julienned
⅓ cup leek, julienned
⅓ cup celery, julienned
soya bean cake (available in Asian grocery stores)
6 oz pearl noodles (available in Asian grocery stores)
2 eggs, scrambled
1 Tbsp XO sauce
1 ½ Tbsp oyster sauce
2 tsp soya sauce
½ tsp sugar
coriander leaves, for garnish
1 red chile, deseeded and sliced into rounds, for garnish
1. Julienne all vegetables and blanch together. Set aside.
2. Make sauce by mixing XO sauce, oyster sauce, soya sauce and sugar together. Set aside.
3. Heat 1 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil in a thick non-stick pan or wok and scramble eggs with noodles (sautéeing noodles and eggs together helps avoid the noodles sticking to the wok).
