Our new favorite noodle. Not exactly a noodle I suppose, but kind of? These thick oval discs come in a vacuum sealed package in the fresh noodle section of Asian markets and are simply scrumptious when stir fried with veggies and a rich soy saucy sauce. We used broccoli, carrots, mushrooms and cabbage, but you could use whatever you have around!
3 tablespoons light soy sauce (preferably a Chinese brand such as Pearl River)
1 tablespoon Chinese dark soy sauce or mushroom dark soy sauce (this isn’t sweet like the Thai kind, it’s just rich and actually less salty than Chinese light soy sauce, gives great color)
2 tablespoons Shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon mushroom “oyster” sauce
1 tablespoon Chinese chili oil (there are lots of good recipes out there including this one on Woks of Life)
1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
2-3 garlic cloves minced
1 piece of ginger minced
Good pinch of white pepper
1 cup of water
Rice Cake Stir Fry 1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 head of broccoli cut into florets
2 carrots peeled and sliced diagonally
8 ounces mushrooms cut into 4ths
1/2 cabbage sliced
1 pound fresh rice cakes
Green onions sliced
Mix together sauce ingredients.
Heat a wok and add sesame oil. Throw in the broccoli and carrots and spread out over the surface of the wok. Then leave them to char a little. Stir and add the mushrooms. After a few minutes, add the cabbage and continue to cook until slightly wilted.
Add the rice cakes and sauce and bring to a boil. Once the rice cakes are tender chewy, they are done. Top with green onions and enjoy!
Oh my gosh, this Thai Curry soup is bowl drinking good! Look at our kid lapping it up. I was inspired by this yummy recipe on Budget Bytes. We used shirataki noodles which are these weird almost no calorie noodle, but are … Continue reading →

When I saw this recipe for Sweet Korean Lentils on Sweet Korean Lentils I was intrigued, but I wasn’t sure lentils would work in this kind of dish. I was so happy because they totally worked! They are sweet, soy saucy, just lightly … Continue reading →
This tofu curry I found on LA Fuji Mama is from Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. It isn’t Indian or Thai or really any specific cuisine. It is just coconut milk flavored with curry powder, green onions and cilantro. Simple, nice and … Continue reading →
I have a confession. I’m really loving The Organic Gourmet Vegetable Bouillon cubes lately! The ingredient list doesn’t seem too bad, but it definitely has that salty msg taste. Anyways, they are easy when you don’t have any vegetable stock on hand and I … Continue reading →
These teriyaki bowls with avocado and spicy mayo kind of remind me of caterpillar rolls: the teriyaki sauce is similar to eel sauce, and the creaminess of the avocado and spicy mayo really hits the spot! I haven’t ventured into … Continue reading →

I forgot to add the egg before taking a picture! Oh well, the egg was really good, but this picture will have to do. I loved this ramen I think mostly because of the sesame garlic tare. I had never heard … Continue reading →
