    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice lengthwise. In a bowl, combine the soy-miso sauce, 1/2 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.
