These, highly customizable, asian style noodles are one of best things you can make for a quick, healthy and exciting lunch or dinner. You can easily throw in almost anything you have on hand, I used carrot, radish, red pepper and scallions but bok choy, greens, broccoli, sautéed onions, mushrooms, brussels sprouts, asparagus, green beans, etc. would taste great too. For those nights after a busy day, when you're exhausted and ravenous but have no idea what to make, keep this one in mind! 

Recipe for 2 servings.

 

Ingredients:

For the noodles:

  • 2 portions of noodles (use any noodle, wheat angel hair pasta is pictured) (rice, soba, shirataki would be great)

  • Chopped peanuts, a good handful
  • A couple sliced radish
  • 2 carrots, peeled with a peeler
  • Red pepper, sliced
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • Serrano chili (spicy!) thinly sliced
  • Toasted sesame seeds

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup low sodium Tamari
  • 2 small cloves of garlic, minced fine
  • A bunch of cilantro, chopped
  • The juice of a lime (start with half and taste to see if it needs more, lime juiciness varies)

Directions: 

  1. Combine all dressing ingredients together and stir.
  2. Cook noodles as per cooking instructions.
  3. Toss cooked noodles with dressing.
  4. Then add all other ingredients, as you choose!
