I used bean starch noodles, also referred to as cellophane or glass noodles. There are other varieties made with potatoes or starches. You can find them in the Asian food aisle at the grocery store. They are normally packaged in three bundles of dried noodles. I normally use one bundle at a time. The package says it has three servings, but once you add in vegetables that one serving goes a long way. Jay has always been creeped out by them and this time was no different. If you don't like glass noodles you can use any other type of Asian noodle.
1 bundle bean starch (or other Asian) noodles
1 medium sweet potato
4 oz mushrooms
1 small onion
1 clove garlic
1 bunch cooking greens (kale, chard, mustard greens, collards, etc.)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
2 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoon sambaal oleek or sriracha or red pepper flakes (optional)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Cook the noodles to package directions.
While the noodles are cooking, chop up all your vegetables in the order you'll cook them - garlic, onion, carrot, sweet potato, apple, mushrooms, greens. I like to start cooking the heavier vegetables while I chop the rest. Heat the garlic and onion over medium heat until the onions begin to turn translucent. Add the carrots and sweet potato and cook for about 5 minutes, then add the apples, mushrooms, and seitan. Finally, add the greens and let them wilt.
To make the sauce combine all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk them together. This makes enough sauce for a light coating, so if you want more you can increase the portion size of each ingredient. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and stir to evenly coat the dish.
I generally find that cellophane noodles tend to be very long, so after I drain them I like to put the whole pile on my cutting board and slice them once or twice. Combine the vegetables with the noddles. Serve and top with cashews. Enjoy!
