This Chinese noodle soup recipe is super easy and quick. It is an excellent idea for a quick dinner in a busy night or for a late-night snack. No need to stir fry or saute, only one-pot to cook the noodles. Additionally, it doesn't need complex ingredients. Only those ones that you can easily find in your pantry.

- Light soy sauce
- Sesame oil
- Dry thin noodles
- Fined chopped Chinese green onion/scallion
- Chili oil (optional)
Bring a pot of water to boil and add the noodles to the pot.
Take a bowl, add soy sauce and sesame oil.
Take a big soup spoon of the boiling water to the bowl, taste, and adjust with either soy sauce or water to your liking.
Once the noodles are cooked, scoop up the noodles from the water or drain the noodles in a drainer. Carefully add the noodles to the soup. Sprinkle the finely chopped green onion on top of the noodles.
Add chili source if you like. I use Lao Gan Ma chili crisp.
This recipe is very versatile, you can vary based on your liking: spicy, non-spicy, you can add some vegetable if you happen to have some in your pantry; you can poach an egg while boiling the noodle; you can add sea weeds if you prefer. You can be as creative as your imagination goes...
