Simplest stir fry is can be prepared faster than you think. This adventure takes only 25 minutes. Driving back and fourth to pick up Asian-inspired fast food may take longer. Just do it yourself! Unbelievably delicious and satisfying. Unlike some Asian take-out foods, this one is not greasy, has less sodium and contains the best oils from your own kitchen.
I used Japanese soba (buckwheat) noodles which contains less gluten compared to wheat noodles. However, any stir fry noodles will be good. Ready-to-use Japanese udon noodles make an excellent choice. Many supermarkets bring udon as well as variety of stir fry noodles these days. Not a fan of Udon or stir fry noodles? Not a problem. Use a half of 1/3 of linguine.
Cook noodles following the instructions on the package.
While noodles are boiling, prepare a sauce and set aside.
In the meantime cut broccoli, carrots and mushrooms.
Drain the noodles well and set aside.
Stir fry vegetables for 4-5 minutes, add sauce and drained noodles.
Stir for 3 more minutes. Done!
