Scallion oil noodles, also known as Cong You Ban Mian, are a popular Chinese dish that features springy noodles tossed in a fragrant scallion-infused oil. Here's a recipe to make scallion oil noodles:
- 8 ounces of noodles (such as wheat noodles, udon noodles, or ramen noodles)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sliced scallions (green onions)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (for color, optional)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- Optional toppings: sliced cucumbers, bean sprouts, sesame seeds
- Cook the noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking.
- Add the sliced scallions and minced garlic to the saucepan, and cook for about 2-3 minutes until the scallions turn slightly golden and crispy.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the scallion oil cool for a few minutes.
- In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, dark soy sauce (if using), sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
