This recipe serves 5
For the stir fry:
2 Tbs sesame oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbs ginger, minced
1 large head of broccoli, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
3 large carrots, chopped
1 can of baby corn (in water), drained
1 can sliced water chestnuts (in water), drained
1 oz bag of sprouts
1 package Hakubaku organic buckwheat soba noodles, cooked per package instructions ( I salted my cooking water)
1 package Shiitake Mushroom Sunshine Burgers, cooked or defrosted per package instructions
1 scant Tbs Bob’s Redmill cornstarch
4 Tbs water
For the Garnish:
Dry roasted peanuts
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl and whisk until well combined. Set aside.
Add one half of the garlic and all of the ginger into a wok with the sesame oil. Heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the carrot, celery, broccoli a pinch of salt and ½ of the sauce. Cook, stirring frequently until the broccoli is bright green and slightly tender. Add the corn, water chestnuts, and cook stirring frequently for 1 minute. Add the cooked noodles, sprouts, remaining sauce, and remaining garlic. Continue stirring until all of the sauce, noodles, and vegetables are well combined. I used a wooden spoon and tongs to really toss and turn the noodles. Combine the cornstarch and water in a small mixing bowl to form a slurry. Add the slurry to the noodle mixture. Continue to stir and scrape until the slurry is completely combined with the noodles. Turn off the heat and add the Sunshine Burger crumbles, stir again until Sunshine Burger is well combined. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste, then serve. Garnish with cilantro, peanuts and Siracha.
