Chile-Lime Glass Noodles


 I was in the mood for noodles and veggies last night, but wanted to try a new recipe.  This one was definitely a winner and let me experiment with some new veggie pairings.  We will definitely have it again.  I would recommend adding more hoisin sauce or chili-garlic sauce than recommended if you want bigger flavor. 

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

Who says you need a wok to make an Asian stir-fry? Here, a skillet sears tempeh and veggies to perfection.

  • 4 oz. glass (cellophane) noodles
  • 3 ½ Tbs. hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbs. lime juice
  • ½ tsp. chile-garlic sauce, such as Huy Fong
  • 1 ½ Tbs. toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. plain tempeh, diced
  • 1 12-oz. pkg. button mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 lb. baby bok choy, thinly sliced on diagonal
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced (1 cup)
  • 2 ½ Tbs. minced fresh ginger
  • ½ cup chopped basil
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

1. Soak noodles in large bowl of hot water 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

2. Whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, and chile-
garlic sauce.

3. Heat 1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil in skillet over high heat. Add tempeh, and stir-fry 4 minutes, or until golden 
on all sides. Add 1/4 cup water, and cook 2 minutes, Transfer tempeh 
to bowl.

4. Add remaining 1 Tbs. sesame oil to skillet. Add mushrooms and bok choy; stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in noodles and bean sprouts, and cook 2 minutes. Stir in hoisin mixture, green onions, ginger, and tempeh; stir-fry 1 minute. Serve topped with basil and peanuts.
