Replace honey with brown sugar and butter with olive oil to make it vegan.I used egg noodles but you can select from a variety of noodles such as rice noodles, udon noodles, soba noodles, ramen noodles, linguine, etc.Just cook them 1 minute less than the package instructions. Make sure to not overcook the noodles otherwise they will turn mushy.To make a non-vegetarian version of this recipe, add stir-fried chicken, shrimp, bacon, etc. You can also scramble eggs and add them to the noodles.
