Every now and then my kids floor me. They taste something I think they will never like and end up loving it! Rose recently tasted an Asian noodle salad that I bought in the prepared food section at Whole Foods. She loved it! I try really hard not to give the girls store bought prepared foods. I really like knowing exactly what is in the food we are eating. I even go as far as making my own fish sticks and chicken nuggets because unfortunately that is what the girls eat.
I decided to create my own Asian Noodles for Rose’s lunch box. They came out sooooo yummy that I want to share the recipe! It is really easy. All of the dressing ingredients go into a jar. Shake and mix!
Rose’s Favorite Asian Noodles
|My Rasp! I love my Rasp!|
1lb box dry Linguini, cooked al dente
1/4 cup tamari (soy sauce)
1/8 cup sesame oil
1/8 cup grape seed oil (or other light oil-canola)
Juice of 1 lime (1/8 cup)
2 tablespoons of grated fresh ginger (I used my rasp)
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic (I used my rasp, again!)
3/4 teaspoon crush red pepper flakes
(leave out if making for kids-unless they like spice!)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 bunch broccolini, blanched
1 cup shredded carrots
1. Put all ingredients in glass jar with lid. Shake. Done!
2. You can add anything you want. Vegetables (snow peas, asparagus, red pepper strips)
Nuts (peanuts, cashews) Meat (stir fried chicken, beef, pork) Sesame Seeds would be great!
Cilantro! Go Wild!!!
