Don't let the longer ingredient list scare you off, it's mostly quick-to-measure items like vinegar, oil, and fish sauce that require no prep. In fact, the noodle bowl comes together in about 30 minutes.
For dressing: In a screw-top jar combine fish sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic, finely chopped ginger, jalapeno, green onion, and chopped basil.
Bring a pot of water to boiling. Remove from heat. Add noodles. Let stand 5 minutes or according to package directions until softened. Drain; rinse under cold water and drain again.
Heat a wok or large heavy skillet over medium-high 1 minute. Add oil; heat 10 seconds. Add chopped ginger; cook and stir 10 seconds. Add vegetables; cook and stir 2 minutes or until crisp-tender.
Divide noodles, vegetables, and romaine among six bowls. Drizzle with dressing. Top with herb leaves. Serve with peanuts and lime wedges. Makes 6 servings.
To make ahead, soak noodles and store up to one day, covered, in 1/4 cup cold water to keep noodles from sticking. Drain and prepare as directed.
