How to serve

We love a simple garnish of fresh chopped green onions and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Chopped peanuts or siracha would be other yummy additions you could try!

I ate a big bowl of these for lunch on recipe testing today and they were so yummy as is!

This one is definitely a keeper.

I discovered when I created my homemade stir fry sauce that sesame oil and soy sauce are the essential ingredients that you need when making takeout style dishes at home.

Fresh minced garlic takes this dish to the next level!
