    • ½ lb Fresh Ramen Noodles (Previously Frozen)
    • 3 Tbsps Soy Glaze
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 10 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 2 Tbsps Tahini
    • 3 Tbsps East Asian-Style Sautéed Aromatics

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. In a bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy glaze, ponzu sauce, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    2 Cook the vegetables

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms and diced pepper. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the sautéed aromatics (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), chopped garlic, and chopped bok choy. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Return to the pot; add the sesame oil and stir to thoroughly coat.
