What's for Dinner Wednesday~Spicy Garlic Brown Rice Noodles

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Here's another simple, healthy, under 30 minute recipe for you.  I love that there are so many dietary options for this one.  Find the one that works for you.

Sticky Garlic Brown Rice Noodles



Ingredients:

8 oz of gluten-free noodles (brown rice, quinoa noodles, zucchini noodles, etc) *we chose brown rice
3 TBS butter (or ghee, or vegan butter spread) *we used Earth Balance vegan butter
1/2 C (plus a few extra TBS for garnish) green onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, diced *we used our stand by chopped out of the jar
2 TBS of coconut sugar (or brown sugar) *we chose brown sugar
2 TBS of tamari (or soy sauce) *we used coconut aminos
Optional: 1/2 tsp oyster sauce (we omitted)

Directions:

1. Boil noodles according to directions until al dente, drain, and set aside (add some butter so they don't stick together after draining).
2. Meanwhile in a saucepan over medium-high heat melt the better.
3. Add the green onions and garlic and stir for about 1 minute until fragrant.
4. Add the sugar and stir vigorously until it is completely dissolved.
5. Add tamari (or soy sauce), and mix in thoroughly.
6. Toss the noodles with the sauce, plate and garnish with fresh green onions.

Add-ins:
Grilled Chicken
Grilled Shrimp
Mixed Veggies

As most of you know, our youngest moved home just before Christmas.  When meal planning these days, we try to come up with recipes that will yield enough for leftovers for her to take for lunch the following day to work.  This fits the bill.  This recipe is easy to double.

Enjoy!

This looks delicious Lauren, as usual. And such a smart idea to think about leftovers when planning meals. I 'm sure that saves her a bunch of money! I have some many of your meals that I have a saved and plan to make. Hopefully I will do so soon!
