Egg Noodles

A Chinese inspired recipe

An easy recipe for home-made noodles following an European style. It can take up to an hour to cook everything, but once you taste them, it will be all worth it.


  • 1 package of Egg noodles
  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 Small cabbage
  • 300 gr shrimps (frozen or fresh)
  • Soy sauce
  • Salt


  1. Start by washing all the vegetables. Cut the zucchini and carrots in thin long slices. This type of cut in the cooking world is called “julienne cut”. Put them in a pan and fry them for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, you can wash and then cut the cabbage leaves.
  2. After 10 minutes that the zucchini and carrots are cooking, add the cabbage and cook everything together for another 10 minutes.
  3. While the vegetables are cooking, put a pot full of water on the stove and let the shrimps boil. If they are frozen, it normally takes 5 minutes for them to be ready. If they are fresh it takes 10 min.
  4. Once the shrimps are ready, add them in the vegetables pan and turn off the stove.
  5. Now, let a pot of water boil and then cook the egg noodles for 3 minutes following the instructions written on the package.
  6. When the noodles are ready, add them to the pan with the vegetables and the shrimps. Add the soy sauce as a dressing, put as much as you like. I suggest you to taste it and add if necessary (Image 2).
  7. Switch on the stove for 3/5 minutes and then serve the noodles (Image 1).


  • If you do not like zucchini and carrots, you can replace them with other vegetables.


  • We suggest you to use a wok pan so that it will be easier to fry and stir the ingredients.
