“Healthier than wok-fried noodles, these are microwaved and full of flavor. Very delicious and reminescent of the fried rice-noodle dish at our local Chinese restaruant. I used reduced-sodium soy sauce and it turned out really well. Designed to be a vegan recipe, but for non-vegans, a dash of worcestershire sauce is a nice touch. Also, if you are making this gluten-free, be sure the bottled sauces don't contain wheat products unless you know you can tolerate them.”
