1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

Fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water. Cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise, separating the leaves and stems. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, worcestershire sauce, black bean-chile sauce, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of water.

Cook the vegetables
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 carrots and sliced onion in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the sliced bok choy stems; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Meanwhile, to the pot of boiling water, add the noodles, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 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.
