Tasty and mostly simple food for the whole family.
Tasty, healthy, simple, verstile, practical, seasonal, fun food for all to enjoy. I will endeavour to make things gluten-free, dairy-free (cow's milk only here, I'm not super-human), and low sugar as able. I hope others feel motivated to add their recipes to this collection so we can all try them. Thank you!

Rice Noodle Quick Stir-Fry
1lb Rice noodle sticks (linguini or fettucini shape- I love Trader Joe's brand)
1 clove garlic minced or grated
1-2T olive oil
2-4T Soy sauce or Tamari
2-3T Toasted sesame oil
Toasted black and/or golden sesame seeds for garnish
Bring large pot of salted water to boil and cook noodles as directed on package and drain. These give off a ton of starch, so lots of water is good, even if making a half batch.
Meanwhile, stir-fry the garlic in the olive oil in a large saute pan or wok. When the noodles are finished, toss them into the pan and coat throughout with garlic and oil. Drizzle the sesame oil and tamari/soy sauce liberally over the noodles and continue to cook for maybe 4-5 minutes longer. Feel free to add more tamari/soy sauce and sesame oil if it needs more as you taste it in the pan.
Note: On occasion, we have had a few noodles left and found that they do not hold up well as left-overs, so I stronorgly recommend just eating them all!
Another Note: to make this more of a main, add some chicken, tofu or other meat and veggies in and cook with the garlic before adding the noodles!
