Spicy Veggie Rice Noodle Stir Fry

Asian food is definitely my favorite type of food. I love stir fry, lettuce wraps, asian soups, sushi, and asian-inspired salads. The Asian foods I usually eat are very healthy because there are loads of veggies in them! Not only are these foods healthy- they are also super easy to make. It is pretty difficult to mess up a stir fry- all you need is to add loads of veggies, a protein source (if desired), a starch, and a delicious sauce! You can even use healthy, store-bought sauces to make cooking even easier.

For this recipe, I used brown rice noodles and a combination of fresh and frozen veggies. In the summer I use a lot more fresh veggies, but I did not have any fresh broccoli on hand, so I used frozen (because broccoli is a must in stir fry IMO). It only took me about 20 minutes from start to finish making it perfect for a quick & healthy week night meal.

So here’s what you will need to make this recipe:

1/2 a small red onion

1 large carrot, grated

1 medium red bell pepper

2 cups frozen broccoli

1 serving brown rice noodles (about 52 grams)

Spicy Sauce:

2 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tbsp chili garlic sauce

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp black pepper

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tsp fresh minced ginger

Optional: pinch of coconut sugar


All you need to do to make this is to slice/ chop the veggies & saute them up in a nonstick pan. Cook the noodles according to the directions. Mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce & add it to the veggies when they are just about done. Then add the brown rice noodles to the pan with the veggies & sauce. Give everything one more good mix & then its ready to eat! So fast, fresh, and full of nutrients!

Since I usually just cook for myself, the serving size here is just for one- but if you want to make it for a larger group, just double, triple, quadruple, etc. the recipe!
