Add noodles to a pot and prepare this enticing idea

Print this recipe
Fried garlic makes everything better, but when you already have two pots on the stove, it can be difficult to keep everything going at once, without anything burning. Plus, who wants to wash three pans? No one. That’s why this recipe fries the garlic in the microwave, meaning any small bowl or ramekin will work. This way the fried garlic taste infuses with every step of the cooking process.
The key to pre-frying your garlic is to take it out and drain the excess oil just as it turns lightly golden brown, because it will continue to cook in the wok later on. Plus, if you save the leftover garlic-infused oil, it makes a great addition to salad dressings, sauces, or really any other dish.
