Here's something simple to try the next time you have a craving for noodles or just don't want to cook. It's a really simple recipe, and it comes from the Momofuku cookbook, and it makes enough to store in the fridge for later. Basically, it's ginger and scallions. Here is a link to the recipe.
It's a lot of ginger. It looks like it's going to be overwhelming, but it's not, don't worry.
David Chang recommends serving with a quick salted pickle. This is basically a sliced cucumber mixed with salt and sugar and let to sit for a few minutes. I added water chestnuts from a can because we had them in the pantry, or you could try roasted cauliflower. His suggestion that a dash of hoisin sauce over the top is the perfect finish sounds spot on, but I will have to save it for next time.
