4 Quick Dinner Ideas Using Hokkien Noodles
Hokkien noodles are a type of Chinese wheat noodles. They are often served in soups, but can also be stir-fried with vegetables or fried until crispy. This article contains four quick dinner ideas for using Hokkien noodles.
Hokkien noodles are from the Fujian province in China. They are popular in Southeast Asian cuisine and can be found in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.
Hokkien noodles are made from wheat flour and water. The dough is then stretched and cut into strips to form noodles of different widths.
This week, we share some easy to cook recipes that don't require a ton of work. If you don't have all of the ingredient essentials noted in the recipes, don't worry, as we'll give some suggestions for swapping these out for something similar!
1. Spicy Beef Hokkien Noodles
by Recipe Tin Eats
A lovely simple recipe with one pot has 5-star reviews and takes 20 minutes to make. If you wanted to make this recipe even quicker, you could use a frozen stir-fry medley of veggies to mix with the beef.
Also, if homemade Chinese sauce feels a bit labour intensive (we get it, the easier, the better sometimes). Try some soy sauce, oyster sauce or a mix of the two.

2 Sesame-Tofu Hokkien Noodles
by Marley Spoon
I love the way Marley Spoon layout their online recipes. Very visual and with clear step by step picture-rich instructions.
This vegan recipe also should take under 30 minutes once ingredients are organised. If you don't have everything on hand, see if there are any suitable ingredient swaps in the pantry or omit anything that feels non-essential.
Marley Spoon also supply the measured ingredients for this recipe as part of their meal kits to make it nice and easy you'd like to give it a try.

3. Kylie Kwong's chicken, chilli and Hokkien noodle soup
at Good Food
Another delicious Hokkien noodle recipe that takes less than 30 mins to make.
Kylie's recipe uses a homemade stock which can take some time, so think about replacing this with some regular chicken stock. Don't worry any recipe of Kylie Kwong's it will be delicious!

4 Hoisin Pork and Noodle Stir-fry
Hoisin is one of my favourite tasting sauces; whenever we buy a jar, it gets used up pretty quickly!
If you don't have hoisin, try swapping it out with black bean sauce, teriyaki sauce or a mix of oyster sauce might suffice, too— but try to pick up a bottle when you're next at the supermarket.
