Tonight’s dish gets its inspiration from “japchae,” a Korean stir-fry featuring plenty of crunchy vegetables and springy “glass” noodles made from the starch of sweet potatoes. Our stir-fry uses baby bok choy, sweet tinkerbell peppers and thin slices of carrot (yours may be orange or purple). A delectable, savory black bean-based sauce ties it all together, imparting subtle heat from a touch of sambal oelek.
