1 TB olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 an onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
small tin of water chestnuts, sliced "matchstick-style"
2 c fresh mushrooms, sliced as above
2 TB soya sauce
2 TB black bean sauce
1 TB butter chicken curry paste
2 green onions, chopped
2 c fine egg noodles (or any noodles; why not?)
chopped lettuce (about 2 c or to taste)
Saute, in olive oil, the next 5 ingredients for 5 or 10 minutes: first the garlic, onion and pepper, and last the water chestnuts and mushrooms. Then add the soya sauce, black bean sauce and butter chicken curry paste and warm over low heat. Boil and drain noodles. Toss all with chopped lettuce and green onions.

I didn't have all the ingredients called for in the original so used what I had on hand instead.
