  1. Noodles - Prep according to packaged instructions. I typically put them into a rectangular baking dish and then soak with boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. They should be tender but not so soft that they break.
  2. Garlic / Onion / Zucchini / Red Pepper - Prep as directed
  3. Sauce - Mix together soy sauce, fish sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, and corn starch with water.

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add 1 tbs. (14.8ml)cooking oil and then garlic to heated oil. Once you can smell the garlic, add in the onions with a dash of salt. Stir-fry until they start to soften up, ~3 minutes. Add in zucchini and red peppers. Stir-fry for another ~2 minutes. Add in seitan and then noodles.
  2. Make a donut in the middle of your wok, and pour in your stir-fry sauce. When it starts to bubble and thicken, toss everything together. Add in a squeeze of lime juice and basil leaves. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and hot sauce and serve warm. For more stir-fry help, check out this video.
