Over the summer I was at a Pot Luck Party. I saw that someone brought some rice noodles with veggies. It was so delicious and I kept on eating it; probably about 3 helpings worth…..Shhhh don’t tell anyone. 😄. I’ve periodically seen and bought rice
noodles at the deli counter, but now I’m thinking how hard would it be to make my own? Let me tell you it’s not hard at all.
Sesame Rice Noodles with Veggies
- 1 pkg rice noodles
- thinly sliced green onion (amount to your liking)
- broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces (amount to your liking)
- sweet red pepper, chopped (amount to your liking)
- 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 tsp ground ginger (more/less depending on your taste)
- 4 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 4 tbsp organic maple syrup
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp crushed red chillies
- In a small bowl, mix your sauce ingredients together and set aside.
- Boil your rice noodles according to package directions until soft.
- Blanch broccoli and red pepper 2-3 minutes
- In a saucepan on medium heat, pour your sauce in and allow to cook, 3-4 minutes.
- Reduce heat to low and add in your rice noodles and veggies.
- Ready to serve!
As far as the veggies go, use whatever veggies you like. I just happened to have broccoli and red pepper when I made this for the first time. Carrots, zucchini and mushrooms would also go well with rice noodles. The reason I put “to your liking” for the amount of veggies is that everyone has different taste when it comes to the amount of something in a recipe. I always look at recipes and think to myself: How would I change it for my liking? Experiment and have fun. That’s what healthy cooking is all about.
