Lemon Stir Fry Noodles

Would it be to much to ask that someone open a noodle bowl shop in Greenwood?  I don't think so. 

But I also don't think it would be to much to ask for homemade chocolate chip cookies to be 0 WW points.  Or for someone to take me on a week long trip back to Carmel.  Maybe I don't make the most reasonable requests.  

Moving on. 

Here's a quick little something when you want some noodles but don't want to make a big deal out of things.  Chances are, you've got lots of this stuff up in  your cabinets.  And chances are, your taste buds will say "score!" when you taste them.  Or they might say "holy yum!" just depends on your outlook in life.

Or your taste buds might say "liar!!" because if we were doing honest then we'd realize that this is, in fact, not a stir fry.      
Lemon Stir Fry Noodles

1/4 lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1 tbl soy sauce
2 tbl sugar
16 oz frozen stir fry vegetables
3 cloves garlic
1 tbl vegetable oil
6 oz stir fry noodles (I used chuka soba brand)

Cook the noodles according to the package direction, set them aside. 

Combine the lemon juice, zest, broth, soy sauce and sugar to make your sauce.  Set this aside as well.  

In a large pan, heat the oil.  Add the garlic and the vegetables and cook until they are cooked through.  Add the noodles and the sauce to the pan and toss to combine.  

Serving size 1 cup (makes four)

  1. FYI - if you plan to visit NOLA soon there's a new place that just opened Uptown called Noodle and Pie. They serve asian noodles and, wait for it....PIE. Haven't been yet but it's supposed to be good.
