Long Life Noodles with shiitakes, ginger & scallions
Also called Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year celebrates the beginning of the new year on the traditional Chinese calendar. And along with the celebration comes food that carries a lot of symbolism. Long Life Noodles are long, uncut noodles that are said to bring longevity when eaten during the Lunar New Year celebration, or on a birthday — not that you need an excuse to enjoy this simple and satisfying dish.
What Type of Noodles To Buy
Look for noodles labeled yi mein, or e fu, for Long Life Noodles. But if you can't find them, any long wheat and egg-based noodle will work... just don't break them.
Combine soy sauce, sweet soy, wine, oyster sauce, sugar, and white pepper for the sauce.
Cook noodles according to package directions, then drain and toss with 1 Tbsp. sesame oil.
Toss together shiitakes, ginger, scallions, and pepper flakes.
