Chow Mien (Stir Fried Chinese Yellow Noodle 炒面) for Toddler

“Get a child to get oyster mushrooms in this simple vegetarian Chow Mien? How about having it better by adding the super food, Quinoa, as well as liquid aminos, into his meals?”

My son loves the Chinese yellow noodle (Chinese alkaline noodle), usually being prepared in soup as fish balls noodle soup selling at most of the hawker centers, food courts and coffee shops in Singapore and other parts of Asia.

This thin yellow noodle would also commonly be cooked in fried noodle (Chinese Chow Mien) or the Mee Goreng (Indian fried noodle) style which easily found selling outside. Having that said, these fried noodles selling at the stores are usually over seasoned or spicy.

Mushrooms & Pea Sprouts Stir-Fry

“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”

In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.

If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish.

Homemade Satay and Peanut Sauce Recipe

“Simple ingredients, for a good enough hawker treat at home.”

Satay, barbecued chicken on-stick, is one of the famous Singapore/ Malaysia hawker food that everybody loves!

I have always wanted to cook satay at home, but the extended peeling & chopping, blending and long simmering preparation put me off. Only until today, my satays are finally served on the dining table. It was simply for my son. He loved satay, but I was a little skeptical to let my 2.5yo son have much of the stall bought satays. No choice, hubby pressed me to cook it for son. I have to do it. :)
