Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup celery sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups carrot julienned (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 2 1/2 cups onion thinly sliced (about 1 medium onion)
  • 2 lb Yakisoba noodles
  • 1 medium cabbage chopped
  • 14 oz fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large 14-inch wok over medium-high heat. Add 3 cloves of minced garlic and 2 1/2 cups chopped onions, and sauté them until they become translucent.
  • Toss in 2 1/2 cups julienned carrots & 3/4 cup chopped celery and stir until softened. Then add in the 1 medium chopped cabbage, 1 sliced bell pepper, and 14 oz broccoli Florets and stir for about 4 minutes. The pan will be very full, but don't worry, the veggies get smaller as they cook. Also, I found it helpful to mix everything together with 2 wooden spoons.
  • Pour in 2 tbsp rice vinegar and 3/4 cup low sodium soy sauce and sprinkle 3 tbsp sugar. You may want to add a little more soy sauce depending on how salty you prefer your food.
  • Add in 2 lb Yakisoba noodles. The noodles might seem like they won't want to come apart but once they sit in the hot wok for a few minutes they will begin to separate.
  • Stir the noodles for about another 3-5 minutes or until they've all separated. Remove from heat and serve warm.
