Have you ever been in situation where you have leftovers and not knowing what to do with it? I am pretty sure you do if you cook enough in the kitchen, especially if you are like me who can’t bear to part with leftovers and unused ingredients. For me, this time round I had 2 pieces of KFC (that was because my other half had cravings for it but end up couldn’t finishing it) and a slab of spam aka luncheon meat. Coincidentally, I had 1 bunch of choysum and half a brocolli from whatever that I was cooking throughout the week. With all these ingredients, it is easy enough for me to cook a good wok of stir fry rice vermicelli.
- 150g dried rice vermicelli/bee hoon
- 1 clove of garlic, chopped
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 medium carrot, finely shredded
- 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce, to taste
- Dash of pepper
- 1 red chilli, for garnishing
- 2 pieces of KFC. Removed fleshs from the bones and shred the meat
- 50g of spam, sliced into thin 1 cm slices
- 1 bunch of choysum, chopped into 2 cm length
- Half a brocolli, stalk removed and sliced
- Soak the dried noodles with cold water till soften. Drain with colander and shake to release the water. Set aside.
- Place a wok on the cooking stove. When hot, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil.
- When the oil is hot, add in the egg spread it evenly to form a thin omelette. Brown on one side, flip over and break the omelette into small bitesize. Remove and set aside.
- Stir in the leftovers meat till they are all cooked and fragrant.
- Add in the leftovers vegetables and carrot, stir till vegetables are soften. At this point, add in a little water to create steam to cook the vegetables.
- Now, add the noodles. Stir and toss with chopsticks, to loosen and stir fry till noodles are hot. Drizzle on some light soy while stirring to evenly mix soy with noodles. Stir till noodles are cooked through.
- Add in omelette and stir to combine well. Add ground pepper and add in more light soya sauce if required.
- Turn off heat. Tease and toss the noodles, so the noodles are loosen and mix evenly with the vegetables, meat and egg.
Yum! I love the leftover meat as they adds so much flavor to the rice vermicelli.
