Most evenings during the week are chaotic with after-school clubs and post-school activities. Despite the busyness, I’m adamant the kids should eat a wholesome meal (Hello, noodles without soy sauce, stuffed green peppers, creamy noodles with roasted vegetables, and more under 30-minute meals!) at home,
but with a time crunch most days,
I love making meals that tie everything together in a single dish.
Meals like my mixed fried rice without soy sauce,
and another family favorite-
stir fry noodles packed with veggies and two proteins!
How to Make Easy Stir Fry Noodles Without Soy Sauce
Over the years I’ve learned that there are hands-down winning dishes with the kids,
and yes, anything with noodles is always reciprocated with a big smile.
This noodles without soy sauce recipe is not something you should worry about.
I promise, stir fry noodles can still be packed with flavor minus the use of soy sauce!
While choosing the type of noodles, for a healthier version, I like using No Yolk egg noodles as it’s made from egg whites,
is minus the cholesterol, and
is low in fat and sodium.
This paired with veggies, a protein(s) of choice,
and no soy sauce is a win-win for this Mama.
Now usual stir fry noodle dishes call for the use of certain veggies
but my version is incredibly forgiving.
The more I can sneak in the better.
Everything from spinach, kale, peppers, carrots, peas,
corn, beans, spring onions,
and even zucchini works well together.
(Psst! You can even make a simple stir fry without soy sauce, using these ingredients, and following this recipe. Just omit the noodles!)
Sure soy sauce makes everything taste better but it’s anything but healthy, so to flavor my stir fry noodle dish I use lots of fresh garlic, freshly ground pepper, and salt.
This isn’t really a one-pot recipe as I prefer cooking the noodles separately while cooking the cubed chicken in my generously sized wok,
and later sauteing the veggies and scrambling the eggs.
Everything is ultimately added in the wok once cooked.
So yes, a good wok is something I consider essential when whipping up stir fry dishes and fried rice recipes!
You can always rely on a trusty cast iron wok for this.
Every mouthful is loaded with flavorful veggie, protein goodness!
Here’s a printable version of the recipe:
- 1 pack egg noodles (I use the broad ones for this recipe)
- 1/2 lb chicken cut into bite sized nuggets
- 3 eggs
- 1 bunch spring onions chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped garlic
- 1/2 red onion sliced
- 1 cup chopped spinach and kale
- 1 zucchini chopped into mini sticks
- 1 cup mixed veggies I use the organic frozen veggies
- 1/2 cup sliced peppers
- Olive oil to saute
- Salt- to season
- Fresh ground pepper- to season
- Optional Ketchup to add in the end for additional flavoring, hot sauce and/or 2 tbsps of homemade honey mustard sauce
In a pot, cook the noodles as per the instructions on the packet and strain when done.
While this is cooking in a wok, pour 1 tbsp of olive oil and saute the red onions and half the garlic. Once done add to this the chicken, season the same with pepper and salt, and saute till cooked.
When the chicken is cooked, remove the mix from the wok and place in a bowl for use later.
In the same wok, add a tablespoon of olive oil, add the remaining garlic and saute till golden brown. To this add the eggs, season with salt and pepper and scramble.
When the eggs are cooked, remove the egg mixture and place the same in the bowl with the chicken mixture.
Now back in the wok, add a tablespoon of olive oil, saute the zucchini, mixed veggies, peppers and spring onion. When semi-cooked, add the spinach and kale.
Saute for 2-3 minutes and saute the mix with salt and pepper again. (The more pepper the better.)
When done, switch off the stove, and add to the veggie mix, the eggs, chicken and mix well. Taste to see if further seasoning is required.
Finally, gently mix in the noodles and there you have it, a delicious stir-fry noodle dish.
(Optional) Mix in a little ketchup, honey mustard sauce or even hot sauce if preferred.
How easy is that?
This would make a great meal to serve at get-togethers as well.
