Long Life Noodles

The long life noodles dish is as symbolic for the Chinese New Year. The trick is to follow the ancient Chinese custom by not breaking the noodles as you eat. We promise lots of laughter and hopefully not too much of a mess!

1 tablespoon canola oil

2 tablespoons dark sesame oil

2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper

1/4 cup minced fresh ginger

3 tablespoons tamari

1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

2 teaspoons rice vinegar
