Vegetarian Fried Noodles

Ever so often we would have a vegetarian meal as it cleanses the palate and gives an overall sense of well being. My foodie friend Denise who has wonderful recipes and a flair for writing, reminded me of this dish in her post yesterday. Her warm roasted vegetable and pasta salad is mouth watering and I can’t wait to try it.

A good mix of vegetables gave this dish some vibrant colors. I also use tofu for protein and a satisfying bite. A tablespoon of spicy garlic sauce may be added to liven up things a little more.

Ro-Ri’s Vegetarian Fried Noodles
8 oz thin rice sticks
12 small deep fried tofu, sliced
1 medium carrot, julienned
¼ red cabbage (about 2 cups), sliced thinly
1 red chili, seeded and sliced
4 oz Chinese chives, trimmed and cut into 1½” pieces
8 oz bean sprouts
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup water
3 tbsp oil
1 tsp minced garlic

Soak rice sticks for 30 minutes. Drain.

Heat oil in pan. Sauté garlic until fragrant. Add sliced tofu, carrots, red cabbage, and chili. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Add noodles, soy sauce, and water. Stir to combine for about 5 minutes or so. Add Chinese chives and bean sprouts. Continue to stir for another 2 minutes.

Remove and serve hot.

Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day!

    My mum used to cook thin rice noodles with lots of veggies all the time, when I was growing up. She loves bean sprouts so much, there would always be almost as much sprouts as noodles LOL Your version looks so bright and fresh – love all the colours of the vegetables!

    Thanks Biren, for the mention. Wish you could see the silly grin that's been plastered on my face since I started reading your post. My face is beginning to hurt but I can't stop *GRIN* See? LOL

    denise@quickies on the dinner table – I like bean sprouts too and I trim mine. I know that's fastidous but it taste and look so much better with the trimming.

    You are most welcomed Denise. Love your recipes and your write-ups. Will be trying your pasta dish this weekend :)
