Ingredients

Teriyaki Sauce

The Rest

  • 8 ounce Asian stir fry noodles (see Notes for options) *I used ramen stir fry noodles, seasoning packets discarded
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • sesame seeds + hot sauce, for serving
  • Optional: Marinated Tofu *optional for added protein

Instructions

  • Make the Teriyaki sauce: In a small pot, whisk together the soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic and ginger together over medium-high heat until it starts to bubble. Mix the cornstarch and 1/4 cup water together in a small bowl, and then add to the pot, whisking until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Cook the noodles: Boil the noodles according to package instructions, this will vary depending on the kind of noodle you use. Drain and set aside.
  • Cook the vegetables: In the same pot you used to boil the noodles, add the broccoli, carrot and 1/2 cup of water. Turn the heat to high and cover, steaming for 3-4 minutes, until the vegetables have softened and most of the water is gone.
  • Turn off the heat and add the noodles and sauce to the pot with the vegetables. Stir to coat everything well. Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds, chopped green onions and hot sauce, as desired. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. Gluten free: To ensure this recipe is gluten free, use gluten free noodles and tamari instead of soy sauce. 
  2. Lower the sodium: If you need to consume less salt, add just a few tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce, and replace the rest with water. You can always add a splash of soy sauce to your bowl as well.
  3. Noodles: I used Asian ramen type stir fry noodles from packages I found at my local grocery store, and discarded the flavor packets. You could also use rice noodles, vermicelli, soba noodles or buckwheat.
  4. Mix it up: Use any variety of vegetables you like, such as asparagus, cauliflower, green beans, bell peppers or even a frozen vegetable mix. Or add marinated tofu or tempeh.
