Spicy Asian vegetables with Red rice noodles- by Tanya Goyette

Spicy Asian vegetables with Red rice noodles- by Tanya Goyette

I made this recipe the other night for dinner as I was craving a spicy asian dish with coconut milk and peanut sauce.  I found some Red Rice Noodles that come in very small serving sizes, which is perfect when you are watching your carbohydrates coming from grains.  It was super simple to whip up and was ready in about 30 minute from start to the first bite.  I simply chopped up the vegetables I had on hand, which happened to be zucchini,  carrots, mushrooms, green onions, and parsley.  I added some coconut milk, peanut butter, garlic, red pepper flakes, and Braggs liquid aminos.  After cooking the noodles, I added them  to the veggies and it was simply perfect, in fact, there were no leftovers of this one! Try the recipe below!

Spicy Asian vegetables with Red rice noodles- by Tanya Goyette

4 oz Red Rice noodles (or you can sub any type of Asian rice noodles)

1-2 Tbsp Extra virgin coconut oil

2 julienne zucchinis

1 large carrot, shaved with a peeler

3-4 chopped green onions,

2 cups sliced mushrooms

1 handful of parsley, chopped

1 Tbsp garlic, minced

Braggs liquid aminos

1 cup coconut milk ( I used full fat, canned, but you can use home made or light)

2 Tbsp plain, unsalted peanut butter

1 Tbsp sesame seeds

1/2 -1 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste

Directions: Start water to boil noodles.  While you wait, chop up the vegetables and add to a preheated skillet on medium high with coconut oil.  add zucchinis first, then chop the mushrooms and add them, then add the remaining vegetables and garlic, saute vegetables until tender and put on low. Add coconut milk, peanut butter, and red pepper flakes until its blended through vegetables. While you are cooking the vegetables add the noodles to boiling water and set timer.  after the noodles are done and you have mixed the coconut milk and peanut butter mixture to pan, add the cooked and strained noodles and mix well. I had to cut some of the noodles while in the pan to make it mix together better. Add Braggs liquid aminos to your preference after serving.  Enjoy!
