Ginger-Soy Noodles

Sometimes you have a craving that just won’t go away. Mine is usually for noodles. Chow fun, lo mein, pad thai — I love them all.

This recipe is cheap, fast, and totally satisfying. The ginger provides the flavor, and the spinach keeps it healthy. To be honest, these noodles make me wonder why I ever order in, as they take the same amount of time to make as delivery from my local Chinese joint. With this recipe, you'll get enough to feed a small army, or just two really hungry folks.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
