I love Thai food but don’t go out to restaurants for it much anymore because it’s hard to avoid all the added fat. Here are some easy thai noodles I make about once a week. This one has the great flavor without the fuss or the fat.

From The Forks Over Knives Plan

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces brown rice noodles or other whole-grain noodles
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (12-ounce) package frozen Asian-style vegetables (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, white and light green parts chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped, roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Instructions

  1. Cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile in a large saucepan, combine the soy sauce, brown rice syrup, lime juice, garlic, and ¼ cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the Asian mixed vegetables and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cooked noodles and mung bean sprouts and toss to coat. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Garnish the noodles with the green onions, chopped peanuts, cilantro, and lime wedges. Serve.

Love this recipe! Made some changes to the sauce in subsequent re-makes:
• Reduced lime juice to 1/4 teaspoon or skip altogether sometimes
• Added 1 teaspoon of powdered ginger
• Added 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder & onion powder
• Substituted honey & maple syrup in place of brown rice syrup

Pairs great with udon noodles!

Oh! Also recommend 1/4 TSP of red pepper flakes for a little added heat! :]

I added lime zest, extra lime juice and sriracha to give it more flavor for serving, but overall, very good. Quick and easy recipe that is definitely healthier than takeout!

I tried this last night and it was really good! Based on a few comments, I added red onion (might try shallots next time) and extra soy sauce and garlic. I topped it with sriracha before serving, to give it a kick. This is a super easy and delicious recipe that’s definitely going in the rotation.

I’m a sucker for anything noodles! This picture also looked so enticing, so I had to make this dish. It was the best decision. I used a lot of garlic and added red onions. Super delicious!

Any recipe that lets me cut prep time by using frozen veggies is a weeknight winner in my book. YUM!

Bright and tasty – used a bit more soy than the recipe and lots of lime.
