Quick and Easy Stir-Fry Noodles

  • 1 12oz. package linguine
  • 1-2 Tbs. canola
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 2-1/2 Tbs. brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 Tbs. rice wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. sweet red chili sauce
  • 1 Tbs. dark sesame oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 2 Tbs. fresh ginger, minced or pressed
  • 1 large orange, red, or yellow bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 C fresh or frozen green sugar snap peas, snow peas, edamame, or green beans
  • 1 medium zucchini, julienned or chopped
  • Optional: Grilled chicken or steak, black sesame seeds, chopped cilantro, and lime wedges

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When it is boiling, add the noodles and cook al dente. When the noodles are done, drain them and toss in 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil.

Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, and dark sesame oil. Set aside.

While the noodles are cooking, heat a large skillet over high heat. When the oil is hot, add the sliced onions, garlic, and ginger. Stir fry 1-2 minutes or until fragrant, but the garlic isn’t burning. Add the peas (or beans or edamame) and stir fry for about 30 seconds. Add the zucchini and peppers and stir fry for another 30 seconds or until the veggies are crisp-tender. Add the noodles and stir fry until the noodles are well-combined with the vegetables. Give the sauce a quick whisk and then drizzle it evenly over the noodles and stir fry the entire mixture for about 30-60 seconds or until everything is well-coated in the sauce.

Serve immediately–if you want, you can garnish individual servings with chopped cilantro, lime wedges, and black sesame seeds.
