This is a good, quick, healthy weekday meal that had a good amount of flavor, especially considering the short list of ingredients. I was also able to obtain all the ingredients at my store despite the recent shortages. My husband enjoyed the variety of textures and the fresh vegetables. We also took note of how moist the meatballs were and how the ginger really came through.
I would recommend adjusting the quantities for a full 4 servings. I thought 8 ounces of noodles gave us an amount of noodles appropriate for the amount of thinly shaved vegetables I had.
Otherwise, you really only have enough for 2 servings. Because the sauce is fantastic, I would also double the glaze. I would also add a second teaspoon of rice vinegar to the shaved vegetables as one teaspoon did not seem to be enough for the amount I had. Making these tweaks would definitely make this dish a winner.
This was a really delicious recipe. The meatballs were flavorful and moist and the dish was really filling while staying light. I loved the shaved vegetables as they added a great crunch and freshness.
My only critique was the dish could use some more seasoning along the way. I would season the water for the noodles heavily with salt, up the vinegar to a tablespoon, and season the veggies with salt and pepper. The amount of scallion was also too much for the dish, one shaved scallion would be perfect.
