a few squirts of hot chili sauce
1/4 cup chopped green onion
leftover chicken (about 1 cup) or other protein (optional)
- Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the noodles and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the carrot, edamame beans and celery and cook for another minute or two. Drain into a colander and set aside Cover the colander with the lid from the pot to keep it warm.
