  2. Peel the ginger. You can scrape the skin off with a spoon, use a peeler or simply cut off the skin. Mince 1 tsp for the stir fry and store with the minced garlic. Chop the remaining ginger - about 1 inch of the root (the blender will do the rest).

  3. Into the food processor, put the garlic, scallion, red pepper, ginger, chili pepper flakes (optional), and the soy sauce. Pulse for 30 sec, scrape down the bowl and process 1 minute more, or until finely ground.

  5. I use a tablespoon to measure out the meat for each meatball. Roll meat into 24 balls each about 1.5 inches in diameter. TIP: score the meat in half, then each in half again, then again to give you 8 equal portions of meat. Then roll 3 balls from each of the 8 portions to give you 24 same-size balls.

Cook!

  1. Make the rice noodles by bring a large pot of water up to a boil. Add the rice noodles to the boiling water and push them down to submerge. Stir the noodles as they soften and cook for 5 minutes until the desired texture. Drain and rinse under hot water. Place back in the pot until ready to serve.

  3. While the meatballs cook, combine the Dijon Mustard with the Teriyaki Sauce and Sesame Oil.

  4. While the rice and the meatballs are cooking, make the veggie stir fry. Preheat a large skillet on high and add a tbsp of olive oil and the Carrots. Cook the carrots for about 5 minutes, then add the broccoli, garlic, and ginger. Stir so that they do not burn and cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to soften.
