Slurpy noodles in umami tomato sauce😋 – a quick lunch meal from my pantry & hope you’ll give it a try too☺️. Stay safe & well, friends🙏. Have a lovely, Friday🤗.⁣

Recipe (yields 3 servings)⁣
~ 3 servings noodles of your choice, prepared based on package’s instructions⁣
~ 1-2 cups bok choy, sliced thinly⁣
~ 3 tomatoes (use a mixture of Roma & Campari)⁣
~ 1 cup veggie stock⁣
~ 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari⁣
~ 1 tablespoon Sichuan chili or homemade chili oil with sediment (check highlights for recipe)⁣
~ 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil⁣
~ handful of chopped scallions⁣
~ oil, white pepper & salt to taste⁣

How to:⁣
✅Bring a pot with 4-5 cups of water & 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a rolling boil. Blanch sliced bok choy for about 30 seconds. Drain & quickly toss bok choy with a drizzle of oil. Set aside. (If your bok choy is larger in size, please extend cooking time to 1 min)⁣
✅To prepare the tomatoes, make a slit ‘X’ at the bottom of each fruit. Bring a pot of water to boil, then slowly place tomatoes into the boiling water. Cook until the tomato skin starts to peel off.⁣
✅Remove tomatoes using a slotted spoon & place them in the ice water bath. Then, peel off the tomatoes’ skin.
✅Place tomatoes in a blender & blend until smooth. Pour tomato mixture into a pan with veggie stock, soy sauce & toasted sesame oil.⁣
✅Bring mixture to a rolling boil & let it simmer over low-med heat until the sauce is reduced, about 3 mins. Season with white pepper & more salt if needed.⁣
✅To serve, toss noodles & veggies with sauce. Then, top noodles with chili oil with sediment, toasted sesame seeds & chopped scallions⁣. Enjoy immediately😊
