Really delicious and exotic recipe, with lots of ginger, that we enjoyed so much. I had bean thread noodles instead of the rice noodles and they worked ok. Next time I'll make a trip to get the rice noodles, though. I also added a few shitaki mushrooms to the vegetable mixture, which we enjoyed. The preparation and the cooking was a breeze, Sharon, thanks to your good instructions.

Rule#1. . .do not leave out the chilis. Rule#2. . .do not omit the chili oil. My DH doesn't care for hot stuff, so I left them out and the meal was very bland. That being said, I added some soy sauce and that cured it for me. I used a 6.5 oz bag of noodles and decided we would still like more veggies. . .so I threw in some additional broccoli slaw (which was a great addition). Tomorrow I plan to add some broccoli florets to the leftovers and have it for lunch. I will photo then. THANKS! Made for VEG*N tag.

Very tasty and simple to make. I had no hot chili oil so I used tabasco sauce and it worked just fine. I'll be making this again.
