Spicy Udon Noodles Prep time: 10 minutes
You'll need
  • 1 orange zest and juice
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili paste
  • 11/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 11/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 11/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 11/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 6 cups mixed cut raw stir-fry vegetables (broccoli, bok choy, zucchini, onion, scallion, red bell peppers, carrots)
