This is dinner in a pinch. Ready in twenty minutes. One pot. Easy. Veggie stuffed. What more?
Seriously, this is a quick dinner from scratch. Cut up some veggies, sauté, add noodles, cook, serve, enjoy!
I always adored Korean chap chae. With tofu. Here, I switched things up a bit and used squash, eggplant, and zucchini, which are abundant right now. The noodles are golden bihon, but you can use any kind of noodles, or even angelhair pasta. Depending on what type of noodles you use, you may have to adjust the amount of liquid needed. Start with less and add more as it is absorbed. When the stir fry is ready, just season it as needed and serve it immediately while it is still warm.
This squash noodle stir fry goes perfectly with a slice of bread or some seaweed chips. Simple and good!
