I have to be honest, I am not the greatest at following recipes - almost all of the meals I make are simply based on whatever I have in the fridge! And, whatever I have in the fridge is usually based on things like, what's in season or what's on sale that week.
So, my advice to you in reading this is: don't feel the need to follow it too strictly! This is just what I happened to have in the fridge this week. BUT, if you're missing one or two ingredients, it's still going to be really good! And you can just substitute for something similar that you already have. No need to go to the store & buy 5 new sauces just to use them one time!
Ingredients for the Sauce:
1/4 c Rice vinegar - could use white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
2 tsp Liquid aminos (similar to soy sauce, but bonus is it's gluten free!)
3 tbsp Sesame oil - could just use regular olive or veggie oil
Sriracha to taste
1 tsp Agave
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Ginger powder
Just keep tasting and adjusting as you go!
Ingredients for the Noodles:
2 cups Bok Choy
1 cup Snap Peas
1 cup shredded Carrots
1 small handful of chopped Green Onions
Boil water & add the rice noodles. These should only take a few minutes so be careful not to overcook!
While that is cooking, wash & dry the Bok Choy - you can leave it whole if you like, or peel the leaves individually.
Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan or, if you have it, a wok.
Cook Bok Choy for 3-5 minutes, add the rest of your veggies (except green onion) and more oil as needed
The last step is to add it all together! I like to drain the noodles & put them back into the same pot. Then add the dressing and the cooked veggies, separate into bowls and garnish with the chopped green onion!
That's about it! Here are some optional suggestions if you want to spice it up a bit:
Cilantro as a garnish
Sautéed or baked tofu
Add a bit of peanut butter to the sauce and blend it all together
Zucchini or broccoli would be great, too!
