Spicy Ginger Stir Fry with Shirataki Tofu Noodles:
Yield: 2-3 servings
Preparation and cook time: 45 minutes
- 1 Rapunzel Vegetable Bouillon (no added salt) dissolved in a little over 1/2 cup water
- 3 tablespoons Coconut Aminos
- 1 tablespoons xylitol
- 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
- 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated or minced ginger
- 2 cloves finely grated garlic
- 1/2 – 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (depending on how hot you want it)
- 2 cups of frozen vegetable medley (broccoli, carrots, squash…. whatever your heart desires!)
- 1 cup cooked and shredded chicken
- 2 packages Spaghetti Shirataki Tofu Noodles
- 1 tablespoons coconut oil
- Grab a colander and drain both packages of Shirataki Noodles. Rinse them VERY well and let all the liquid drain out.
- While the noodles are draining grab a skillet and melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil.
- Take your Shirataki Noodles in the skillet and dry fry them. This will take about 25 minutes. You want them to look like the thin Chow Mein Noodles and have a tan coloring. (You can do away with this step if you don’t mind the tofu texture. I like this texture better for the stir fry.)
- Take a pair of tongs and keep moving the noodles around every few minutes. You want to leave it on a medium- medium high setting.
- In a medium-sized pot boil a little over 1/2 cup of water and dissolve the vegetable bouillon in it.
- Remove the pot from the heat and add ingredients #2-10.
- Steam your veggies as directed on the package, drain and add them to the sauce.
- Add your cooked, chopped chicken and dry fried noodles.
- Make sure the sauce is completely covering everything and serve!
