Fried Angel Hair


My daughter loves noodle. For example, she likes rice flour noodle (mee suah) and vermicelli (bee hoon). I try to discover more kids recipes to please her palate. This fried Angel Hair is whipped up for that purpose. Not only the kids need a healthy diet, the adults gain the benefits too. She likes the noodle. But she eats pretty slow since she is learning to chew her food. Her teething is still in progress. 

I just wonder if kids have problem to digest the angel hair since it is made of Durum wheat? 
By the way, this recipe is modified from the Fried Noodle with Minced Pork and Fungus

Fried Angel Hair with Minced Pork and Fungus 碎肉木耳炒面
Serves 4

Ingredients:
4 servings of angel hair, cooked per the instruction on the packaging (remark: salt is added to the hot boiling water)
200g minced pork 5 stalks of chives, cut into 1.5” length
a few florets of black fungus, soaked, drained and cut into strips
5 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 onion, peeled and chopped
3 Shiitake mushroom, soaked, drained and cut into strips
cooking oil
water (retained from the angel hair boiling process)

Seasonings (Mix-up):
1.5 tbsp of dark soy sauce
1 tbsp of oyster sauce light soy sauce to taste
dashes of white pepper powder
150ml water

Steps:
1. Heat up oil in a wok.
2. Add minced pork and leave it to fry for a while before stirring. Fry and get the minced pork separated.
3. Add onion sauté for a few minutes, stir in garlic to sauté till fragrant.

Good question. I am also not sure if kids have problems digesting pasta of durum wheat. Maybe just cannot make it al-dente and have to cook it longer? My niece who is 4-5yrs old loves loves loves pasta esp macaroni.
