Chinese Potato Noodles

 

1 large potato

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 dried chili peppers (optional)

2 tbsp black (Chinese) vinegar

Pinch of salt

2 green onions

 

Wash and peel the potato.  Using a mandoline, spiralizer or knife, cut the potato into thin shreds, 2”-3” inches long.  Cover in cold water and soak for 3 minutes.  Rinse thoroughly to remove starch.

Heat oil and chili peppers (if desired) over high heat.  When the oil is hot, remove chilis and add potatoes, vinegar and salt.  Saute for 5 minutes and add green onions.

Serve hot or cold.  Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Hack:  Chop leftover green onions and freeze in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use. While they won’t retain the crispness that would make them suitable for salads or garnish, they will be fine for cooking.
