*Note: This is a very versatile dish that can be a side or a main course. Can substitute whole wheat noodles for nuttier texture or rice noodles for smoother texture. Add or substitute snow peas, bean sprouts, shredded cabbage and/or broccoli for the vegetables. Can also add cooked chicken or tofu, if desired. This dish can also be made ahead and served cold, reserving garnishes until serving time.
