Mise en place
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Peel and mince the ginger. Mince the garlic. Peel and thinly slice the carrots into rounds (if the carrots are large, halve lengthwise and cut into half-moons). Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the yu choy stems; roughly chop the leaves and stems. Zest and juice the lime. Core and thinly slice the sweet pepper. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

Boil the noodles
Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 5 to 7 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the noodles; drizzle with oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Prepare the spiced peanuts
In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add ½ the garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Reduce the heat to low and add the peanuts. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the peanuts are coated in oil. Add as much of the lime zest as you’d like; season with up to ½ the spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Wipe out and reserve the pan.
