- Prepare noodles. Prepare the noodles according to package instructions, drain, rinse and set aside. Undercook the noodles slightly as they will cook more with the other veggies in the wok.
- Make your sauce. Add sesame oil, soy sauce, vegan oyster sauce, vegetable stock and coconut sugar to a measuring jug and whisk together until well mixed.
- Add sesame oil to a wok and heat it at medium high heat until hot.
- Add crushed garlic and minced ginger and sauté for a minute to lightly toast them.
- Then add spring onions, mushrooms, red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, carrot, baby broccoli florets and baby corn and sauté until the veggies are tender but still firm.
- Add the cooked noodles, pour over the sauce and add the chopped basil.
- Toss the veggies and noodles and sauce together and fry for a few minutes until the noodles are heated through and the sauce is well combined with the veggies and noodles.
- Serve in bowls and garnish with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds.

*Spring onions – are also known as green onions, salad onions or scallions.
*Storing and Freezing – Keep leftovers stored in a covered container in the fridge and enjoy within 3-4 days. It’s freezer friendly for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.
