Ingredients


227 gm Rice noodles, dry (or soba noodles, whole wheat spaghetti)
3 cup Bok choy (or spinach, broccoli)
1 cup Edamame (soybeans), cooked
2 stalk(s) Green onion, scallion, ramp (thinly sliced)
2 clove(s) Garlic (finely chopped)
2 tbsp minced Ginger root
3 tbsp Soy sauce, low sodium
2 tsp Sesame oil
2 tbsp Maple syrup, pure
1 1/2 tsp Red pepper flakes (less or more for desired level of spice)
1 tbsp Sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)

Instructions


Chop the bok choy into halves or quarters, slice the green onions, and set aside.

In a bowl, mix together all of the sauce ingredients (garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, maple syrup, red pepper flakes), and set aside.

Cook your noodles according to package directions.

Heat a saucepan to medium heat and add the sauce, cooking for 2-3 minutes.

Add in the bok choy, edamame and green onions, and mix well, cooking for another 1-2 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low and add in the noodles, tossing everything together.  Serve immediately, top with sesame seeds (if desired) and enjoy!

Notes:

This recipe is for two servings, but can easily be doubled or tripled for more servings.

If you don't have bok choy, or you prefer other vegetables, try using broccoli, spinach or kale.  Add cooked chicken, turkey or tofu for added protein.
