Spring onion noodles are the perfect store cupboard meal. I make these at least once a week for a quick lunch or a small snack. They can also make the most amazing foundation for a more extravagant meal - in the picture below I've topped the noodles with some amazing home made char siu Chinese pork (recipe also on my Food Talk page - search for 'char siu pork') and some homemade pan-fried and steamed dumplings.

The sauce is simple but effective- the oil is flavoured with the beautiful spring onion and carries all the flavour. Simply delicious!
