Boy, it’s been a busy day.
Today, I was awoken at 5:00 by my four (yes, FOUR) Siberian Huskies who were quite hungry. After I fed them, I did that thing where I layed in bed for a few hours and convinced myself that “yeah, I’ll fall asleep!” Needless to say, that didn’t happen. So, around 6:30, I went for a run (I don’t run, so I don’t know what came over me), and then… drove to Whole Foods.
It wasn’t even 7:30 when I got there, but hey- I like productivity. Then, around 9:00, I went to a two hour tennis lesson that was followed by a tennis clinic. Let’s just say I can’t feel my legs.
BUT, I survived, and I rewarded myself with this dish. If you couldn’t tell, I’ve been experimenting with different dishes recently. When experimenting, you must try new sauces and seasonings, which is how I came upon this 365 Everyday Value Soy Ginger Sauce from Whole Foods Market Del Mar. I was VERY skeptical of this at first (I think it was the fact that I bought it at 7:20 in the morning and I hadn’t had coffee yet), but boy am I glad I bought this. The ginger flavor is very light, but it adds a lot to the dish. I got mine from Whole Foods Market Del Mar for $2.49, which is amazing because this stuff will last me about a month. HELLO SAVINGS!
Pad thai is the PERFECT lazy girl dish. Once you make this dish, you’ll have dinner (or lunch) for a week. I love the flavors that the vegetables bring out, and anything with noodles calls my name. This was the first time I tried rice noodles, and it DEFIANTLY won’t be the last. Alright, let’s dig in!
- 1 orange carrot, peeled
- ½ bell pepper, peeled
- ½ head cabbage, chopped
- 2 scallions, chopped
- ½ head broccoli
- ½ box Rice Noodles
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp Ginger Soy Sauce*
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- Sesame seeds
- Pre-heat a pan to a medium heat, and melt the sesame oil on it. Swirl around so it coats evenly.
- Chop and peel your veggies. Place the scallions on the sesame oil, and swirl them around until the are turning brown.
- Next, add on your carrots and cook until soft. Then, add on the rest of the vegetables and cook until soften.
- Once cooked, throw into your cooked noodles, add the sauce, and enjoy!
- Cook the pasta according to the box directions.
- Once cooked, drain the water and keep the noodles in the pot. Add the vegetables into the pot with the pasta, add the sauce, and devour.
