When I first graduated from university, I bought a little cookbook called "Chinese Meatless Cooking." I have used it a ton of times and especially like this noodle recipe. It is called "Szechuan-spicy Noodles or Dan-Dan Mein." This has a good bite to it and the a nice full flavour. Be warned that once you start eating these noodles, it is really hard to stop.
This is my version of that recipe:
Szechuan-spicy Noodles or Dan-Dan Mein
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp of minced garlic...or more is good
1 tsp of sambal oelek or chili paste (I use either, depending what I have on hand)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 pkg of Chinese noodles - I use the ones that come 6 to a pack - use 3 squares
Combine all the ingredients, except the noodles, in a small bowl or measuring cup. Set aside.
Boil water. Add noodles for about 2 minutes max.
Drain and put into large bowl. Pour sauce on top and mix well.
Serve hot or cold. Delicious either way.
I have made this recipe for years. As long as you keep the proportions reasonably close it will be fine. I use either rice vinegar or plain white vinegar interchangeably and both are fine. The sesame oil is important to the flavour and I wouldn't leave it out.
