Recipe: Stir-fried noodles with nira

Pasta with aromatic herbs
April 19, 2009

NiraLast year I sowed some chives garlic or Nira (Allium tuberosum). It's similar to chives, but more flavorful and with larger leaves.
After a short winter dormancy, the plants are producing new, bigger leaves. I'm harvesting them and using them in many recipes.

Stir-fried spaghetti ingredientsA tip: when cooking oriental-like recipes, you shoud cut the ingredients in a concordant and harmonious way. To match noodles shape, cut them into thin stripes when possible. Using rice, you shoud cut the ingredients into small cubes and so on.
