Since Dan spent some time on the missions field with him family in Indonesia, he's always been a big fan of Asian foods. As a result, we become more of Asian food eaters during our marriage and I was excited to see this recipe on BHG.com. And, from what I've had in oriental restaurants, this is actually pretty close to "authentic" as compared to some of the mexican foods on there (I have been SORELY disappointed with the Latino food recipes I've found thus far!).
You'll have to look specifically for the bok choy (Chinese cabbage), five-spice mix (a mixture of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, etc.), and the somen noodles. Somen is a simple wheat noodle from Japan, so a bit of a mix of Asian country heritage. The bok choy was surprisingly yummy...the stalky part kept a bit of it's crunch and reminded me of a cross between spinach and water chestnuts. Very nice.
This was a SUPER easy recipe, easy clean-up, and was definitely a hit. It's going on our "master list" of recipes for sure!
