Brown rice noodles…THAIriffic!

I absolutely love Thai, Japanese, and Chinese food but I could never get my homemade dishes to come out the way it does as the restaurant, until…

Now, with Thai Kitchen’s brown rice noodles, you can easily make a healthy vegan and vegetarian friendly dish. It comes with 4 individually wrapped noodles per box so you can always make 1 or 2 packs per serving or make them all for family style stir-fry dish.  I decided to make the whole package (I still have leftovers and I have a family of 4) and throw in some frozen veggies broccoli, corn, cauliflower, snow peas, and used Kikkoman’s Stir Fry Sauce and soy sauce for a little extra flavoring.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 bag of frozen veggies
  • 1 box of Thai Brown Rice Noodles
  • 1 jar of Kokkoman’s Stir Fry Sauce
  • 1 jar of Low Sodium Soy Sauce

 

DIRECTIONS:

I’ll break it down for you. First, boil a pot of water and add a pinch of salt (it helps so that the noodles won’t stick together). Then, you can add your noodles, stir continuously until tender for about 3-5 minutes. Be careful because nobody likes overcooked noodles!

As you’re waiting for that, get your veggies ready. I decided to use a frozen bag of assorted veggies including broccoli, snow peas, carrots, and let them defrost while I waited for my noodles to cook. I had leftover corn and sliced that up to throw in as well.

Once the noodles are fully cooked, drain them thoroughly until all the water is out. Set the noodles aside in a bowl. Then, add 1/2 cup water or less to your skillet, Kikkoman’s stir fry seasoning (you can decide how much you need), and soy sauce to your preference. Wait until it starts to bubble slightly.

This is my favorite part. Throw them veggies in and get mixing. You can also add salt or any other seasonings that pair well. I stuck to the traditional route.

Cover and let cook until tender 5-7 minutes. You can test it by putting the fork through the veggies to see if they’re done. Keep mixing and once the veggies are ready add the noodles in. Now here comes the easy part, mix for a minute or two, and add more stir-fry sauce if needed. Cool a few minutes and get ready to EAT! Oh yeah, don’t forget to sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
