Vegetable Hakka Noodles

Serves: 1 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins | Total Time: 25 mins


  • Individual Pack of Noodles
  • 2 tbsp Spring Onions, White and Green separated
  • 1 Carrot, chopped small or julienne
  • 2-3 Beans, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2-4 tbsp. Cabbage, finely shredded (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. Mushrooms, chopped (optional)
  • ¼ cup Capsicum, chopped or julienne
  • ½ – ¾ tbsp. Soya Sauce
  • 1 tsp. White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Chili Sauce
  • ⅛ Pepper Powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • ¾ tbsp. Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic, finely Chopped


  1. Bring water to a boil on the stove (roughly 3 to 4 cups), and add noodles. Cook until al dente, and make sure not to overcook to avoid them turning soggy.
  2. While the noodles cook, chop all of the vegetables (onions, carrots, beans, cabbage, mushrooms and capsicum) and garlic. Place them to the side for later.
  3. Mix together soya sauce, chili sauce and vinegar in a bowl. Put this to the side for later.
  4. Strain the noodles of water and rinse them using cold water in order to remove any remaining excess starch. A good trick, to keep the noodles from sticking, is to stir in a dash of oil.
  5. With the flame on high, add olive oil to the wok. Once hot, add your chopped garlic and fry until golden brown. Make sure to stir constantly to avoid burning.
  6. Add white spring onions, chopped carrots, beans and mushrooms. Fry together, until lightly done.
  7. Add capsicum and cabbage, sauté until half-cooked. They should retain some of their crunch. You don’t want to overcook and have soft soggy vegetables.
  8. Pour in your mixed bowl of sauces.
  9. Once the sauces begin to bubble, add in your strained noodles, green spring onions and pepper powder.
  10. Sauté in sauces for approximately two minutes, tossing and mixing the entire time to avoid burning.
  11. Serve and Enjoy!
