INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prep the veggies
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel the carrot and cut it in half lengthwise. Using a peeler, peel thin slices off the carrot, like noodles. Mince the garlic. Trim the snow peas and cut, on the diagonal, into 1 inch pieces.
2
Crisp the leeks
Cut the baby leeks in half lengthwise. Lay on a baking sheet and toss in 1 tbsp vegetable oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until browned in places and tender, about 15 minutes.
3
Build some flavor
Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Once hot, add carrots and cabbage and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Add garlic and snow peas and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add sweet soy, tamari, and ¼ cup water and reduce heat to medium. Cook until the vegetables are crisp tender and the sauce is slightly thickened, about 4 to 5 minutes.
4
Make the sauce
In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard powder, miso paste, rice wine vinegar, and 2 tbsp water.
5
Add the noodles
Add the noodles to the skillet with the vegetables, breaking them apart with tongs or a fork, and toss them well in the sauce. Let noodles simmer, stirring occasionally, to warm through, about 4 to 6 minutes. When the leeks are finished, remove from the oven, and use a spoon to coat with the miso mustard sauce.
6
Chow time
Divide the vegetable chow mein between your plates and serve with the miso mustard leeks. Serve any additional miso mustard sauce on the side. Enjoy!
