Thai Fried Rice Noodles


This delicious dish is my creative twist on Pad Thai.  You will love how good this meal makes you feel with all the romaine lettuce, red cabbage, carrots, green onions, garlic, paprika and the yummy rice noodles. Only one tablespoon of olive oil for the entire recipe, so it is very heart friendly.  Add a squeeze of fresh lemon and ground walnuts to finish off your dish. Makes two very large dinner size portions - you won't need anything else to go with this meal unless serving more than two people.

Serves 2
1 tsp. extra virgin olive Oil
1 clove garlic minced
2 green onions (use entire stalk) Slice at an angle
1/4 cup water
4 carrots (Use a Julienne Slicer) See photo above.  This tool creates long thin slices

3.) Add carrots and continue to stir-fry 30 seconds.
4.) Add drained rice sticks. Add 1/4 cup water and continue to stir-fry until noodles are  translucent. 
5.) When rice sticks start to stick together and stick to pan, add soy sauce, agave and paprika. Stir and cook 1 minute.
6.) Add romaine and cabbage. Turn off heat and stir until mixed well.
7)  Serve topped with ground walnuts and a lemon wedge.  Squeeze lemon wedge  over noodles and enjoy:)

  10. I saw these Phad Thai rice sticks in my local Krogers Saturday and almost bought them, but didn't. I will have to go back and get them now, because this sounds delish!
