Method: 

Soak rice noodles in boiling water for 4 to 6 minutes, or until al dente; drain well and set aside. Meanwhile, whisk together broth, garlic, ginger, wasabi, sesame oil, sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar and cornstarch in a small bowl to make a sauce; set aside.

Heat wok over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the canola oil and pepper flakes and stir-fry for 5 seconds. Stir in drained rice noodles and fry, stirring often, for 3 minutes. Pour one-third of the reserved sauce over noodles and toss for 1 minute. Transfer noodles to a platter and keep warm.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining canola oil in wok. Stir in green onions, carrots and bell peppers and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Pour half of the remaining sauce over vegetables and toss for 1 minute. Transfer vegetables to platter, arranging them over the warm noodles.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in wok. Add edamame and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir in remaining sauce and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Spoon edamame over vegetables and noodles, garnish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
