Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles, and a teaspoon of salt. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes until they are tender. Blanch them in cold water, set aside.

Grate fresh ginger; soak it in a  cup of rice wine. Set aside for 10 minutes. Warm up a large stove top griddle or wok on high. Add in sesame oil; As it smokes, add in the soaked ginger, reserving the wine for later. After a few seconds, add in broccoli, carrots and peas. Saute for a minute.

After a minute, lower the heat to medium. Add the cooked noodles and saute until they are all well combined. Turn off the heat; cover and let it rest for a few minutes, allowing the noodles to soak in the flavors of the ginger and wine. Serve hot. Enjoy!
