Asian Greens with Brown Rice Noodles

You know those days where you are starring at the fridge and pantry, scratching your head wondering what on earth to make for dinner? Well, this recipe came about in one of those moments.

I was hungry, had only 30 minutes to make something and wanted an Asian inspired dish with lots of ginger and vegetables.

I had a look at my selection of vegetables, checked if I had Tamari in the fridge and if there were some noodles in the pantry. Check, check and check! I was all set to go.

As I’m a big organic nerd, I haven’t been buying rice noodles as I haven’t been able to find organic ones until now. I finally stumbled upon some Brown Rice Noodles in a health food store.

They are also perfect for recipes such as pad thai (my favourite Thai dish!) I will be sharing a recipe with you on my take of a pad thai soon šŸ™‚
