Rice Noodle Stir Fry

Chewy rice noodles scandalously loaded with crisp tender vegetables, a flavourful garlic and ginger sauce, and eggs make up our divine Rice Noodle Stir Fry. Serve it as a side dish for any number of Asian inspired dishes or as a great, stand-alone vegetarian main dish.

This naturally gluten-free* recipe is crazy easy and comes together at the speed of light. It’s as fast as ordering take-out and even tastier! Don’t let the long-ish ingredient list scare you!

*To keep this recipe gluten free, be sure to use tamari sauce or gluten-free soy sauce. To make it vegetarian, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

I love that this rice noodle stir fry is positively bursting with crisp-tender bell peppers, carrots, suga… Read More

Black Friday Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I ate way too much.

I’m not a big Black Friday shopper. I haven’t been out at the stores in years. However, I caught an online sale that is really great. The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is having a big Black Friday sale on Amazon! IT’S $69!!!! It’s 47% off. Dude. I bought mine in early October for $120.

I’ve only had it for a month but it is the coolest! I made a pot roast in an hour. Yesterday, I grabbed the turkey carcass, threw in some carrots, onions and leftover herbs and in less than 2 hours I had crazy good broth. My friends just made pork chili with tomatillos in 30 minutes. I’m still exploring (read: watching lots of YouTube videos…really like FloLum’s video series).

I like the electric pressure cooker because it’s a s… Read More
