Beef Noodle Bowl

Here's another tasty, filling and easy Asian dish to try. As usual you can play around with the veggies and use what  you have on hand and enjoy eating! I love international flavors and one dish wonders and it makes clean up a snap!
  • 1 package Gardein Beefless Tips, (defrosted)
  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil , divided
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 8 ounces fettuccine, cooked according to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup edamame peas, I used frozen and just sat aside til needed
  • 1 can water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 can baby corn, drained
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 large carrots, sliced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced - I used baby bellas
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth 
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup agave
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 
  • 3 scallions, diced for garnish

Slice each piece of Gardein in half and put in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon sesame oil, cornstrach and 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce. Toss well and set aside.

Start your water to cook the pasta. Cook according 1 minute less than the package directions indicate, drain, add 1 tablespoon sesame oil and toss well. This will keep the pasta from sticking together.

Heat a large wok or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon sesame oil and shake to coat. Add ginger and garlic; cook for 30 seconds.

Add all of the veggies and stir fry until they are tender but still crisp. Remove vegetables and set aside.

Add 1 tablespoon sesame oil to the pan, coat the bottom. Add the Gardein and marinade and stir fry for about 4 minutes. You want it nice brown on the outside. Remove the Gardein and place over the veggies that are setting aside.
I had already removed most of the Gardein when I remembered to take a pic!
Add broth, vinegar, agave, remaining soy sauce, and red pepper to the skillet.

Stir in your noodles and increase the heat slightly. Toss and cook for no more than 2 minutes.

Now, stir in the Gardein and vegetables. Cook for around 1 minute.

Sprinkle with the scallions and enjoy!
