Summer is officially over. It’s actually starting to feel like fall. The cold weather is here. Don’t worry; here is the dish you can make in your dorm that will bring back the heat — dragon noodles. Dragon noodles are perfect for us college students because it is so affordable. Not only is it affordable, but it is also an easy dish that only takes about 15 minutes.
Ingredients: 4 oz. lo mein noodes 2 tbsp. of butter 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper 1 large egg 1 tbsp. brown sugar 1 tbsp. soy sauce 1 tbsp. sriracha 1 handful of fresh cilantro 1 sliced green onion
First, boil the noodles. If you don’t have lo mein noodles, you can substitute the lo mein noodles with linguine. Once the water comes to a boil, add the noodles for about five to seven minutes, until the noodles are ready. As you wait for the water to boil, in a small bowl, stir the brown sugar, soy sauce, and sriarcha together. Then, in a separate bowl, whisk the egg. Next, melt two tablespoons of butter over medium low heat in a pan. As the butter melts, add the crushed red peppers and the whisked egg and stir. Once the egg is done cooking, turn off the heat. Once the noodles are al dente, drain the water and add them into the pan with the cooked egg. Then, add the prepared sauce. Then, turn the heat on low and stir the noodles until everything is coated with the sauce. Finally, sprinkle sliced green onions and cilantro leaves on top.
Stay warm with dragon noodles this fall and winter. But before anything, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients. Bon appetit!
