Asian inspired sesame noodles with vegetables


I am home again. I was literally everywhere last week, went back and forth in Hungary. Since I love traveling, whether it means traveling locally or abroad, I loved every second of it! But being on a vacation or on the go also means that my lifestyle is changing also. So no working out, very very minimal amount of vegetables and even a smaller amount of fruits. Sleeping time turned up side down - so eating and drinking during the night. Pretty much the worst one can do to their body! And well...being back I noticed all the consequences...A few pounds sticked to my middle and thighs and face is totally puffed up. Not to mention my lack of energy, therefore lack of motivation to workout, too! So what to do what to do...
I am trying really hard to get back to my usual schedule and being a little extra strict to myself :) So what to eat when it's not only me I am cooking for? I would have been happy (okay, semi happy) with just a salad but my family would have been not quite as satisfied with it so I thought I'd make some Asian noodles with vegetables. Can't go wrong with Asian food...It is filling, satisfyingly yummy and pretty healthy, too!

Asian inspired sesame noodles with vegetables

1 package of Asian noodles - whatever you have at home, my favorite is rice noodles
2 carrots
1 red bell pepper
1 onion
garlic
cilantro
bamboo shoot
lemongrass
sesame seeds

for the sauce:
1/4 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup light soy sauce

Add onions, carrots and bell pepper to the wok and cook for about 8 minutes. Add the lemongrass.

Stir the ingredients for the sauce together. Add a few spoons to the vegetables. Add the bamboo shoots and cook for 1 more minute and add the noodles and the remaining sauce. Stir together and sprinkle it with the sesame seeds and the cilantro.

  1. Here's my personal recipe of pancakes. Ingredients:

    Eggs - 125 grams (2 whole eggs and 1 egg white)
    sugar - 50 grams
    starch - 60 grams
    Wheat flour - 200 grams (but you should look anyway at the consistency of the dough)
    salt - a pinch
    sunflower oil - 2 tablespoons
    milk - 500 grams
    vanilla - 2 grams

    How to cook: mixing sugar + vanilla + salt, then add some starch. Now pour the warm milk and stir the flour, bring the liquid to the desired consistency and pour sunflower oil. After each pancake, it is desirable to mix the dough because the starch will settle on the bottom of the vessel.

    All tasty and easy!

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Pad Thai

I feel so bad about not posting anything for weeks. I have my excuses. But who likes hearing about excuses? Not me! So probably no one else, either.  Although I'd like to share that I have finished writing my thesis! I wrote about the crises' of South Asia. It was such a drag...I had a serious writer's block going on and I procrastinated so much that in the end I had 2 weeks left to write the whole thing. I basically did nothing besides writing, eating and sleeping. Exciting life, huh? Now that it's over, I've got even more scholar stuffs to do than before! But I'll be graduating in 2 months, if all goes well...So that's worth all the hard work, right? :)
But enough about me and let's talk about these noodles! I do not think there's one person who wouldn't like pad thai! Even those who swear not to eat any weird looking asian food, like my Grandma, will like this meal after having one bite! It is an authentic thai recipe, due to my Mom went to a Th…
