I got this recipe from Cuisine at Home  – it was a very fast, very quick dish that I served along marinated teriyaki grilled chicken … would be perfect for the summer, so quick and easy!

Cilantro Noodles
Adapted from Cuisine at Home

3 packages ramen noodles (3 ounces each)
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 cup chopped carrots

1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 Tablespoons minced shallots
2 Tablespoons low-sodium teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Blanch noodles in boiling water in a medium pot, 3 minutes.  Drain noodles and rinse under cold water.  Use a salad spinner to remove excess water.

Heat canola oil and sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high.  Add shallots and saute until softened, about 1-2 minutes (do not burn).

Deglaze skillet with soy sauce, then add noodles, tossing to combine.  Season noodles with salt; stir in cilantro right before serving.
