  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Cook the noodles until tender and drain well.  Heat the sesame oil in a no-stick skillet or wok, then add the scallions, garlic and ginger and stir fry 1 minute, until tender-crisp.
