long life noodles

10 Jun

there is nothing more satisfying to us on a hot summer day than a bowl of noodles. eli found this recipe in the back of a book we had borrowed from the library and wanted to try it. the book was called ‘the story of noodles‘, a story about three boys from china who invent noodles. we love noodles so this book was a big hit and the kids couldn’t wait to try the different methods of eating noodles, cutting the grass, sucking the worm and eating a drumstick. the recipe in the book was pretty good but, next time i will thin the sauce a little more. the best part is that you don’t have to cook anything other than the noodles!

long life noodles

brown rice vermicelli (or pasta of choice) cooked according to package directions
-sauce-
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/2 cup of peanut butter (or almond)
1/2 cup coconut milk, or more to thin
1 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs soy sauce, gf

place all ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth, set aside.

-garnish-
the book recommends roasted nuts and dried cranberries, i had neither at home so here is what we used.
shredded cabbage
shredded carrots
shredded collard greens (from our garden, YAY!)
cilantro (also from garden)
sliced green onions
and eli wanted raisins

mix noodles with the sauce and serve. let everyone garnish their own bowl of noodles.
