Gluten and dairy free sweet & spicy noodles are the perfect combination of sweet and spice! Your tastebuds will awaken with utter delight! This is another quick throw together with a little help from ahead of time prep., pantry, and the freezer.
Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…
Sweet & Spicy Noodles
- PLACE 1 packet Thai kitchen brown rice noodles (without the packets that come with it) into a bowl.
- ADD hot water to cover noodles, and break it up with a fork.
- LET sit for 6-8 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
- PLACE 1 tbsp. coconut oil into small pan on medium high heat.
- ADD 1/2 small diced onion, a little chopped bell pepper, a little chopped carrots, and some sea salt; sauté until tender.
- STIR in about 1/3 cup of Thai sweet & sour sauce.
- ADD some cooked/chopped chicken.
- DEFROST some frozen broccoli, chop it, and add to mixture.
- DRAIN water from noodles.
- COMBINE mixture with noodle, add a little S/P, and add some diced green onions.
You can use whatever you love and have on hand for your sweet & spicy noodles. You can see I like the combination of broccoli and chicken because I use it a lot.
It’s simple to prep the chicken. I just pop the chicken breasts in a 350 degree oven with some dried oregano, garlic powder, lemon juice, and S/P. When it’s cooked, I chop it, and put it into the fridge for easy go to meals. If I notice I’m running low on cooked chicken, I just pop more in when I’m cooking something else in the oven. Although, you do need to keep on top of thawing it out from the freezer. I get the Costco organic chicken that comes in a 3 pack of 2 breasts each.
I like to use frozen organic vegetables because they are picked at their peak and frozen right away. That makes for the freshest and most nutritionally valued veg.! Another fab find at Costco.
Peas and shrimp would be a great combination for these sweet & spicy noodles. Mushrooms, green beans, lima beans, and etc. Use your imagination and get creating;)
