  Asparagus 1 Pound, preferably pencil thin, tough ends snapped off, cut on the diagonal into 1 inch pieces
  Chicken broth/Canned broth 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Peanut butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Red wine vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Soy sauce 2 Tablespoon (Preferably Dark)
  Oriental sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Dry sherry 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 2 Teaspoon
  Chinese chili sauce 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Minced scallions 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Finely minced fresh ginger 2 Tablespoon
  Garlic clove 1 Large, minced
  Bean sprouts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Thinly sliced mushrooms/Separated enoki mushrooms 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Button / Shiitake Variety)
  Red bell pepper 1 Large, cut into thin julienne strips
  Minced chives 2 Tablespoon
Directions

1. In a small dry skillet, toast the sesame seeds over moderately high heat, tossing, until fragrant and golden brown, about 1 minute. Set aside.
2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the noodles, separating them with a fork, until tender but still firm, about 2 1/2 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water, drain well and toss with the vegetable oil.
3. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli and cook until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water and chill until cold, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the asparagus, cooking for only 1 to 2 minutes.
4. In a small saucepan, bring the stock to a boil over moderately high heat; remove from the heat. Stir in the peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, sugar, chili sauce, scallions, ginger, garlic and toasted sesame seeds.
5. In a large bowl, toss together the noodles, broccoli, asparagus, bean sprouts, mushrooms and red pepper. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle the chives over the top just before serving.
