Chiva-Soms’s Wok-fried Glass Noodles with Garden Vegetables

This is such a healthy & delicious dish that I learned at Chiva – Som. I love anything with glass noodles and this dish has the perfect combination of health and flavor. At Chiva-Som they do not use oil to cook with (they use vegetable stock instead) but they do use sesame oil to flavor this dish. You can choose to use a little oil if you would like to. If not , here is the recipe for the vegetable stock they make. You could even use a good quality , organic broth instead.
