Meatless, Effortless Noodles

I’m all for express food. Express food that tastes good, of course! I have to admit that vegetables are ideal for quick-quick-step-on-it meals. This meatless wonder took approximately 10 minutes to prepare from pot to plate, without an ounce of compromise on taste. Be prepared for a play on your tastebuds with the sweetness of the mushroom and corn and the tanginess of the soy sauce and spices. Enjoy, Duchesses!
