Shanghai Noodles (Vegetarian)

There are various types of Asian noodles, between the different made, texture, color, size and taste. Which you prefer depends on the dish you want to make, but really, there is no hard and soft rules (Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon). I on the other hand have my own preference (Fried Mee), then again it also depends on what is available at the supermarket. In fact, for this noodle dish (Mee Rojak Vegetarian), thick yellow noodles (Vegetarian Noodle Soup) should be the one, but like they say -"what you want if not what you get", so, I settled for thin yellow noodles (Mee Rebus Vegetarian & Vegetarian Chinese Style Fried Mee Hoon) and fried it up with garlic, ginger, eggs, and seasoned with sesame oil and vegetable granules.

1/2 packet (300g) thin yellow noodles - rinsed
1/2 ginger - sliced thinly
5 garlic - sliced thinly
1/4 (150g) lettuce - sliced 
1/2 red capsicum - sliced
1/2 green capsicum - sliced
2 eggs (if you want to add)
2 sprigs of coriander leaves - sliced thinly
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp vegetable broth powder - mix with 1/4 cup of water
Oil as needed
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste

Heat 2-3 tbsp oil and when heated, break in eggs.
Season with pepper and salt.
Fry or scramble, remove and keep aside. 
Into the same wok, pour 2 tbsp of oil.
Saute ginger and garlic.
Add yellow noodles and stir for about 2-3 mins.
Pour in vegetable broth and let the noodles be cooked.
Add the rest of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper
Stir over high heat for a couple of time and dish out. 
(Optional: Serve with slices of cucumber).
