What you need to do

  • Whisk together the gochujang, hoisin sauce, lime juice, zest, one clove of minced garlic, sesame oil and water. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the carrots and white part of the bok choy and cook for 5 minutes until tender. Add in the udon noodles, remaining garlic clove, sauce, and green parts of the bok choy and toss, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes until the bok choy has wilted.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions, and serve immediately.
