You already know about the superspeedy stir-fry, but curried peanut noodles are another quick Chinese meal you can throw together faster than most restaurants can deliver. Mung bean sprouts and carrot add plenty of crunch, and you can also add water chestnuts and chopped red peppers. Red curry paste adds a nice kick. If you prefer spicier, use green; milder, use yellow.
