INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prep the vegetables

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Chop gai lan into 1 inch pieces. Thinly slice the Swiss chard. Peel and mince 2 tsp (4 tsp) ginger. Trim and thinly slice the mini sweet peppers. TIP: Save any remaining ginger for your own use.

2
Mix the sesame ginger sauce

Add the minced ginger, tamari, peanut butter, rice vinegar, just half the sesame oil, just half the chili garlic sauce, and ¼ cup (½ cup) hot water to a medium bowl and whisk the sesame ginger sauce. TIPS: The sauce will not be completely smooth. Keep any remaining chili garlic sauce for your own use.

3
Cook the noodles and toast the peanuts

Add ramen noodles to the boiling water and cook until al dente, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain noodles and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Heat the remaining sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add peanuts and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until nuts are toasted and fragrant, 1 to 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the toasted peanuts to a small bowl, leaving the oil in the skillet. TIP: When peanuts become fragrant, remove them from the skillet. They will continue to toast slightly while off the heat.

4
Stir fry the greens

Return the skillet with sesame oil to high heat. Add chopped gai lan, sliced chard, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the skillet. Cook until bright green and tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

5
Toss the noodles

Add cooked ramen noodles and sesame ginger sauce to the skillet with the greens. Cook, tossing frequently, until evenly coated and warmed through, 1 to 3 minutes. TIP: If you’re making the 4 serving meal, cook everything in a large pot instead of the skillet.

6
Serve

Divide the sesame ginger noodles with stir-fried greens between bowls. Top with sliced mini sweet peppers and toasted peanuts. If you want more spice, drizzle with remaining chile garlic sauce. Enjoy!
