Happy New Year Everyone!
I know, it seems like it has been forever since I have posted a new recipe. For that I sincerely apologize. Some life got in the way and I just had to put the blog, and recipes, on hold. But never fear, the foodie inside of me has still had recipe creation on the brain and sooner than later I will be pumping out new recipes that will please just about everyone. So, until then I want to give you a recipe that I created last year, but never got around to posting.
This recipe is so simple that you will want to put it on repeat. And the noodles…. They are in a class all their own. I was lucky enough to try these chia noodles from Perfect Earth Foods when they sent me a box full of love to try out. I was sent several of their pastas, but I fell in love with their organic, gluten free, chia pasta. When it comes to pasta, I am all about the texture of the pasta. These noodles kept a nice firm texture that didn’t leave you feeling like you had missed out on something. Not only do their noodles hold their amazing texture, but they have superior ingredients and flavor. And for anyone who have food allergies never fear. all of their noodles are 100% allergy free! They are peanut free, tree nut free, soy free, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free!
Now that we have reached a new year everyone is clamoring for simplicity and clean eats. Whether you are going straight clean, or just looking for a nice balance between all your foods, you will not be disappointed when you try these noodles. They will help you keep your new year’s goals and resolutions and enjoy doing it. And make sure to keep your options open. I used their Red Rice Noodles in a soup made of beef broth and corn with a side veggie chicken sandwich. It was one of the most satisfying lunches I have ever had, and it only took about 15 minutes.
As always, I won’t keep you much longer because I have more recipes to create, and you have more recipes to try. Feel free to leave a comment about your favorite Perfect Earth noodles. And be sure to swing back around and let me know what you thought of this easy stir fry after you have tried it out.
What are your food goals for 2019?
Chia Noodle and Veggie Stir Fry
By Indulge Your Inner Foodie
1 package Perfect Earth Organic Chia Pad Thai Rice Noodles
12 ounce package of frozen Mexican style veggies (Cauliflower, broccoli, onions, and red peppers) Thawed
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon McCormick Montreal Steak Grill Mates
1 medium pieces of dried candied mango cut into match sticks
Optional: 16 ounces grilled chicken
Cook the Chia pasta according to the package directions for 6 minutes and rinse in cold water immediately
*You want the pasta al dente and rinsing it quickly will stop the cooking process
Drain the pasta and turn out on a lint free dish towel to dry a bit
In a medium skillet melt the coconut oil over medium heat, toss the thawed veggies in the coconut oil and allow to cook through
When the veggies have started to slightly brown and are tender (about 10 minutes) toss in the cooled noodles and cook another 3-5 minutes until the noodles are heated through and are slightly browned
Remove from the heat and stir in the Montreal Steak seasoning
If you want to add the chicken, you can fold it in now
Top each serving with the candied mango matchsticks
