In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Take the pan off the heat, add the rice noodles, and let sit until well softened, about 10 minutes. Drain. In a glass measuring cup, whisk together the coconut milk, 1 cup of water, and the tamari, lime juice, brown sugar, and chiligarlic sauce and set aside.
In a large (12-inch) nonstick stir-fry pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and ¼ teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are browned and shrunken, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil, the bok choy, and a big pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until the bok choy is wilted and a bit shrunken, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the ginger and garlic, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the peas and the coconut milk mixture, and stir well. Cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the chopped herbs. Distribute the rice noodles among three or four bowls. Ladle the veggies and sauce over each and garnish with the toasted coconut or bean sprouts (if using) and the herb sprigs and lime wedges.
