Maintenance – Garlicky noodles with Broccoli

This is a quick and easy (not to mention delicious) dinner when you are in a time crunch and need something FAST.

1 8oz box Udon Noodles  (a thick wheat pasta)

1 head of broccoli, cut into florets

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the noodles.  Set a timer and when there is only 3 minutes left of cooking, add the broccoli right to the pot of boiling water.  This is a quick and efficient way to cook the broccoli (without having to use a separate pot).  Drain the noodles and the broccoli and add to the sauce below.

While the pasta is boiling, make the garlic sauce:

4 teaspoons minced garlic
1 TBS sugar
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 tsp chili garlic paste
2 teaspoons canola oil
3/4 cup cold water
2 teaspoons sherry
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 TBS cornstarch

Combine all the ingredients into a saucepan.  Make sure the cornstarch is dissolved well and then put over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Once it is boiling, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 5 minutes.  When the pasta and broccoli is cooked and drained, pour over the sauce and serve immediately.  Optional toppings of cilantro and green onions.
