I love how simple and clean this meal is and to go vegan by just omitting the egg. For this lunch, I used spinach, avocado, radish, green onion and cilantro. Really you can use just about anything. I don't cook the fresh vegi's. Once the noodles and egg are done, I just add them to the bowl, push them down and wait maybe 2-5 minutes, depending on how hungry I am. If you wanted a little more protein, add some cooked chicken or tofu.
1 Packet Rice noodles of your choice
2 Green Onions
1 cup rough chopped Spinach
2 TBSP rough chopped Cilantro
1/4 cup small Cherry Tomatoes
2 TBSP GF Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
1/2 TBSP Sesame Oil
1/2 TBSP Chili Oil
1 1/2 cup Water
Pepper to taste
OR instead of the fresh use (everything else is the same)
1 Cup mixed Frozen Veggi's
Start by adding the water to a microwavable bowl.
Using the tine of a fork, firmly hold the egg in your hand but do not rest the egg on the hard surface, just in your hand. Gently poke a hole in the top of the egg. Not too small, about the width of the tine. Place in the water and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Take the bowl out, BE CAREFUL it will be hot.
Add the noodles and Frozen Vegi's (if you are using them)
Cook on high another 2 minutes
Using a large spoon, remove the egg and place into a glass of water
Cook noodles for another minute
Crack open egg and place in bowl
Add Hoisin, Sesame and Chili Oils and Soy sauce. You can also add garlic (minced) and ginger (minced) about a 1/4 teaspoon each. You can adjust the seasonings for your own taste.
*Word of caution: While it is easy to microwave the egg to hardboil it, you must poke a hole large enough to relieve pressure but not big enough for all the whites to seep out. Also, do not microwave for the 4 minutes straight, I find that it will still blow up. It seems to need the short stop in the middle.
