Spicy Wonton, Veggie and Noodle Bowl

Ever get food cravings that you just can’t kick? I combined two of my cravings and created something delicious, a Spicy Wonton, Veggie and Noodle Bowl.

This recipe came about a few nights ago, when I was craving Din Tai Fung’s Spicy Wonton Soup and vegetables.┬áIt has been a month and a half since my last Din Tai Fung fix and I just couldn’t kick the craving, so I scoured the net and found a chili sauce recipe that claimed to taste pretty similar – Angel Wong’s Spicy Wontons in Chili Sauce.

I headed to the store and found all the ingredients for the sauce, some frozen dumplings (because I could not be bothered making them from scratch) and soba noodles. I had broccoli, green beans and snow peas in the fridge, so I prepared to stir fry them and throw them in the bowl with the noodles and the dumplings.

There are a few steps to this meal so I suggest making the sauce first and setting it aside while you soak the noodles, cook the dumplings and stir fry the veggies.

Warning: This is spicy and not for the faint-hearted. If you are looking for a little spice but more sauce, mix a tablespoon of the spicy mixture in with a few tablespoons of chicken broth.

Now tell me dear reader, what dish are you currently craving?
