For noodles: there are lots of choices, I like Spaghettini noodles , medium wide rice noodles, or soba noodles. Use you favourite!😊

For veggies: to save time buy coleslaw mix, but it doesn’t taste as good in my opinion, but good in a pinch!

Ginger: I peel my ginger and keep it in the freezer and grate it frozen. It’s awesome!
