This recipe for sugar-free pad thai with brown rice noodles is made with 15 ingredients and four steps. First, you must cook the brown rice pasta as directed by the package. Allow the noodles to cook for about two minutes. After cooking the pasta, saute the carrots and onions in 2 Tbsp olive oil. Allow the vegetables to cook for about a minute to release their natural sugars. After a minute, add minced garlic.
Cook the brown rice noodles according to the package directions
When cooking the noodles, it is important to follow the cooking instructions on the package. However, you can do a few things to ensure that they are ready to eat as soon as possible. For instance, soaking the noodles in lukewarm water for a few minutes will give you chewier noodles. Make sure to rinse the noodles thoroughly after they are soaked and dry them thoroughly.
To begin, boil enough water to cover the noodles. Drain and rinse them under cold water. You can use them immediately or store them in a sealed container. Ensure they are not too wet, and avoid putting them in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. When you are ready to cook the noodles, you can either boil the water or use it as a stock. The instructions will usually say how long to cook the noodles.
Toss with a gluten-free brown sauce
There are two basic ways to cook rice noodles – regular and brown. Regular rice noodles are made from white rice flour and water, while brown rice noodles are made from brown, not white, rice. Both varieties are gluten-free. When preparing a brown rice noodle dish, follow the recipe’s directions to the letter. Once the noodle is cooked, add it to the skillet and stir-fry until coated with the sauce.
Fresh rice noodles are easy to find in Asian grocery stores and available in mainstream grocery stores. If you use fresh noodles, double the recipe’s ingredients. You will also need Chinese broccoli, also called gai lan in Asian grocery stores. It has a similar stem and wide, flat leaves to broccoli and small florets like broccoli. To make the sauce, you will need about 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 cup of brown sugar, and one tablespoon of vegetable oil.
Top with a balsamic reduction glaze
Drizzled over pasta or vegetables, a balsamic glaze can be a delicious, healthy, and easy topping for any dish. This delicious glaze pairs well with vegetables, grilled meat, and fruit. Brown rice noodles are especially versatile because they can be topped with just about any topping you can think of. Here are some ways to use it on your favorite dishes:
First, prepare the balsamic reduction glaze. In a medium saucepan, mix the vinegar and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until the vinegar is reduced by half and thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add the remaining honey and a pinch of salt and stir until combined. Drizzle the glaze over the chicken and garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
Top with a grilled skirt steak
This spicy and flavorful bowl features char-grilled skirt steak, crisp vegetables, and a piquant Vietnamese dressing. This dish pairs beautifully with California Rose or Chardonnay. To prepare this dish, start by marinating the steak for 2 hours. Once marinated, grill the steak until medium rare. Place the cooked skirt steak on top of the brown rice noodles to serve. If desired, serve with a side of Quick Pickled Asian Slaw.
To enhance the flavor and aroma of this dish, you can grill the steak and add some garlic scapes and scallions. The grill’s heat softens the alliums, which gives this dish its deep green color. The seasonings in this recipe can be adjusted to taste, and you may also add more or less brown sugar or pepper. The herb can be complemented with other spices, like cayenne or gochujang.
I’m Dan, and I love food.
No, really – I love food. I’m passionate about it in an inexplicable, bordering-on-obsessive way. Bacon makes me beam with happiness; chocolate sends me into fits of joyous celebration. But I don’t just love unhealthy junk food – I also adore vegetables. Kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts? Bring them on! In fact, I’ve even made a website teaching people how to enjoy green things. (We’ve come a long way from loathing veggies!)
Why do we love food so much? It’s simple: good food brings people together. Whether you’re sharing a meal with your family or friends, or bonding over a delicious piece of bacon, food is the ultimate connector. That’s why at Turtle Tree Seeds, we’re dedicated to bringing people together through good food.
