Ingredients

  • 4 ounces brown rice noodles
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 small zucchini chopped
  • 1 10.5 ounce bag stir fry vegetables of your choice {I used one that had broccoli cabbage, bok choy and snap peas}
  • ¼ cup creamy almond butter
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon {or more} sriracha
  • 2-4 tablespoons water
  • ¼ cup sliced scallions/green onions
  • Optional: Crushed almonds for garnish

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat, then remove from heat and add the brown rice noodles. Let them soak for about 5 minutes or according to package instructions until softened. Drain liquid before using.
  • Meanwhile, heat sesame oil in a wok or a large skillet over high heat. Add zucchini and cook for about 2 minutes or until starting to soften.
  • Add stir fry vegetables of your choice and cook, stirring often for about 5-7 minutes or until the vegetables become tender-crisp.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the almond butter, soy sauce and sriracha and stir to evenly distribute and coat the vegetables.
  • Add the cooked brown rice noodles to the pan and stir into the vegetable mixture, tossing to coat the noodles in the sauce. Depending on the desired consistency, add 2-4 tablespoons of water {one tablespoon at a time} to loosen the sauce which will thicken a bit.
  • Cook for another minute just to heat through, then serve with scallions and crushed almonds sprinkled over the top if desired.

Notes

Variations:
  • Swap out your veggies! Experiment with your favorites or vegetables you don't eat often.
  • Use peanut butter or cashew butter instead of almond butter. (You may also use sun butter if you have nut allergies.)
  • Make it spicier! Try adding a sprinkle of cayenne or a little gochujang.
  • Try other types of noodles such as udon or ramen noodles.
