Make the sauce: Mix all the sauce ingredients together.
Cook the noodles: Cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain them and coat in a little sesame oil or other oil for them to unstick from each other. Set aside.
Prep the vegetables: Cut them as you like or as I described in the ingredients list.
Cook the vegetables: In a large skillet, on medium high heat, pour a little neutral oil in. Add in garlic and ginger and sauté until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add all the other vegetables - except for the green parts of the green onion - and cook until tender. Around 6 minutes, depending a little on the size you chose. Sprinkle with pepper. You may also wait with the cabbage until the last minute of sautéing to have more crunch.
Deglaze and mix: Add mirin or white wine to the pan to deglaze it (to get the flavorful brown bits from the pan into the sauce). Add in the cooked noodles and the sauce and give it a mix, to make sure the noodles are warm before serving.
Serve: Serve warm and sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.
