Veggies:

In this recipe, we use bell peppers, carrots, and bean sprouts to give us a vibrant and texturally diverse dish. However, there are a number of different veggies that will work well with this recipe. Mushrooms, water chestnuts, and snow peas are all excellent additions to this dish.

Tips

  • Parboil the noodles for a couple of minutes less than the recommended cooking time on the package. This helps prevent the noodles from becoming mushy when stir-fried later.
  • Stir-frying is a fast cooking method, so it's essential to have all your ingredients chopped, measured, and organized before you start cooking.
  • Optional: At the end of cooking, drizzle a small amount of sesame oil over the noodles to enhance the aroma and add a delightful flavor.
  • Adjust the sauce ingredients to suit your taste preferences.
  • Experiment with different proteins and vegetables for a unique twist.
