Quick and healthy stir fry

When you want a fast meatless dinner, its very easy to do a stir fry. Some of the ingredients can include diced firm tofu, precooked Asian noodles and all of your favorite vegetables. Just have everything pre-cut and ready to go into the pan. First heat a large wok or non stick pan over high heat, add a dash of vegetable oil, when its smoking hot start slowly adding the ingredients and gently stir with out crushing or breaking up the ingredients. You can add flavorings such as chopped garlic and ginger, a dash of light soy sauce or your favorite pre-made sauce like hoisin or black bean. In only a few minutes everything will be cooked, arrange onto a plate and top with sliced green onions. Enjoy

Can you tell me where to get Asian noodles? Is it like pasta or is it special?

In the San Francisco bay area, china town is the best place because of the quality and freshness. Other stores like Safeway will have them fresh in the chilled produce section, if not,ask for them. The noodles are a form of pasta, sometimes made with rice flour and without eggs.
