   florets. Peel skin if too tough.  Discard the leaves.
   Blend together all the SEASONINGS.
   Heat 1/4 c oil in a wok over high heat.  Add drained noodles & thick
   soy sauce (use regular if you can't get the thick stuff).  Stir-fry
   for 3 minutes.  Remove to individual serving plates & keep warm.
   Slightly reduce heat & add remaining oil.  Add garlic & stir-fry til
   lit is golden.  Add the broccoli & SEASONINGS mixture plus 2 1/2 c
   boiling water.  Cook for 3 minutes until the sauce thickens.  Divide
   the sauce evenly over the noodles.
