Fried Noodles [yeah, im making legit mee goreng]

OK I lied, its not THAT legit. It’s more of a cross between packet mee goreng, and real mee goreng
But before I continue, I’M SO SORRY about my unplanned gigantic hiatus… moving was more hectic than I expected, and for the first couple of weeks of Dunedin I lived off takeaways and two minute noodles [like one of those stereotypical poor students. It really does happen, guys.] So anyway, I was hoping to get a baking recipe in when I got back, but that kinda failed. Hopefully I’ll be in a sweet routine once uni starts up again and I can gift you with lots of delish treats 🙂 But in the meantime, hope you like this simple one!

PS: Photos might be a bit strange because I thought I would experiment with my phone this time 😀

Ingredients
half an onion, diced
3-5 cloves of garlic [this time I used garlic paste.. about a tablespoon]
2 cups frozen vegetables [my fav is the asian mix because it has capsicum in it!]
Flavouring sauce, stock, or some kind of chilli-based stir fry paste… [that sounds a bit confusing, but this recipe is so versatile that you can really use anything you want to flavour it. I used a packet Nasi Goreng paste, which is actually used for Fried Rice, but I thought i’d try it with noodles just for funsies.]
Packet noodles of any kind [most supermarkets stock packets of noodles that you can just chuck in boiling water for a bit and use]
Salt and pepper to taste

You can also meat to this recipe if you like, as long as its pre-cooked. As I said, very versatile. And I will probably show you fried rice sometime, but its basically the same method, but swapping the noodles for cooked rice. We will take pictures of that sometime 🙂

Nurul.
