Sweet and Spicy Rice Noodles with vegetables

on

Sweet and spicy Rice noodles  Now that I am on a gluten free diet, I try to cook interesting recipes. And so rice noodles came to the rescue this week! Rice noodles taste wonderful and are so much more healthier than regular noodles made from white flour.  I usually pick my rice noodles from the Asian supermarket. They have so many different varieties of rice noodles that it can actually be challenging to decide which one to pick 🙂 But I have tried different brands and noodles of different thickness and they all usually taste great. The only thing you need to pay attention to is to follow the instructions on the package. And that reminds me, make sure you pick a package that has labeling in english!

Asian style rice noodlesThese noodles tasted especially delicious because of all the different veggies I added. For the sauce, I just used my instincts and added ingredients for sweetness, sourness and and for spicy hot. This is an easy recipe – cook the noodles, stir fry the veggies, mix the noodles with the veggies, add the sauce and slurp away to glory 🙂

Bringing this sweet and spicy noodle dish to Throwback Thursday. Also Linking to Fiesta Friday this week where  Mollie @ The Frugal Hausfrau and Scarlett @ Unwed Housewife are co-hosts this week.
