My husband and I got home after a very long day and needed some comfort food that wouldn't stretch out our bellies too far.
I've been experimenting in the kitchen with plant based protein and vegan dishes and I have to really sell it to my animal protein loving hub. This dish did the trick.
Let's get to it, there's no time to waste. Oh and these are rough measurements, because I didn't measure anything. I played.
VEGAN PAD THAI WITH PROTEIN RECIPE
Serves 4 or 2 with large appetites
- 1 package of gluten free rice noodles (soak in cool water for 10 minutes and drain).
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 white onion
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- 1-2 long organic carrots, chopped
- Tamari Soy Sauce
- Your fave hot sauce (I like cholula)
- Vegetable Broth
- 6 tbsp hemp hearts
Drizzle olive oil in a heated pan and add 1 white onion. Let it turn translucent (about 5 minutes). Then add 3 minced garlic cloves. Saute for another few minutes. Peel an organic carrot, chop it up and add to pan. Let it cook a few more minutes. Then add your rice noodles and turn the heat to medium high. Add Tamari soy sauce (gluten free soy sauce), your favorite hot sauce and salt and stir fry it around. Add a few handfuls of spinach. Sprinkle a little more salt. Saute a few more minutes. Add 6 tbsp hemp hearts. Continue to saute for a few more minutes, until the noodles are almost crispy. Then add around one cup of vegetable broth. Let the dish come together and serve. VOILA!
