How to make Teriyaki Noodles
Firstly, I combined all the teriyaki sauce ingredients in a bowl. Then, I stirred it nicely and kept it aside.
Secondly, I heated oil in a nonstick wok and sautéed broccoli florets in it.
Next, I sauteed bell peppers in it and added some vegetable broth and let it cook at medium flame.
Thereafter, I poured in the sauce and gave it a nice stir. I let it cook for few minutes.
Afterwards, I tossed in noodles along with salt and mixed it well.
Then, I let it cook and rest at low flame until all the liquid was absorbed.
Lastly, I turned it off and mixed it again and garnished with sesame seeds.
We instantly fell in love with this dish and totally went gaga over it.
We enjoyed it for our lunch. Now, often I make it in mid-week which gives us a kick to happily work through the rest of the week.
- Make sure to toss the veggies at high flame. It is important to cook all the liquids in medium flame though.
- After tossing the noodles, make sure to let it rest so that noodles are well soaked and absorbed in the sauce flavor.
This tastes best when served immediately. However, refrigerate the leftovers to be used the next day. Warm it up nicely in the microwave.
I have used healthier noodles. However, the sauce does consist of sugar quite which is the only extra calories. We can also make it oil free and save on some calories.
Simply pour ½ cup vegetable broth in a warm nonstick wok and sauté veggies in it. Then pour the sauce followed by other ingredients. Let them cook and absorb. Garnish and serve.
