This is from Vegetarian Times. May 2005. I would be tempted to add some tofu to this dish.
- 1⁄4 cup hoisin sauce
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch, stirred into 1 tbs. water
- 8 ounces wheat-based Asian noodles, such as somen or 8 ounces whole wheat fettuccine
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 8 ounces extra firm tofu, pressed dry and diced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced lengthwise
- 4 cups packed shredded bok choy
- 4 scallions, minced
- 1 (4 ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained (optional)
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
