Step:

  1. If using "Veggiemade," prep first by soaking in water, then drain.

  2. Boil the noodles. This time, I used healthy ashitaba konnyaku noodles from Taiwan. They're very low in calories, but are chewy.

  3. You could also substitute with yakisoba or somen noodles.

  4. Stir-fry the minced veggie meat in a frying pan with the olive oil, garlic, and salt.

  5. When the noodles from Step 3 have boiled to the colour shown in the photograph in Step 3, add the Shaoxing wine (or cooking sake) and soy sauce to the frying pan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and add the spring onion.
