Comforting Noodles

Cooking with Ayurvedic principles in mind does not mean cooking Indian tasting food :) Here is a delicious noodle dish that will leave you nourished and balanced.


Ingredients


(for 2 servings):

- rice noodles

- 2 carrots

- 2 baby bok choy, or 1 normal size

- 1 tablespoon sesame oil or ghee

optional: wakame, rehydrated in cold water


for the sauce:

- 1 tablespoon soy sauce

- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar or lemon/ lime juice

- 1 teaspoon sesame oil

- 1 teaspoon maple syrup

- 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger

- 1 tablespoon white miso paste

- 2 to 3 tablespoons water to create a more liquid, silky sauce


toppings:

sesame seeds, nori sheets, cilantro or other herb, a squeeze of lime or lemon


Instructions


Cook noodles according to package instructions. Grate the carrots and roughly chop the bok choy, leaving the chopped leaves aside.

Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.


Heat sesame oil or ghee in saute pan, add the white parts of bok choy and saute on medium heat. After a few minutes, add carrots and bok choy leaves. Saute until cooked, then lower the heat to low and add the noodles, wakame and sauce. Heat to warm, mixing, then turn the heat off (don't let the sauce boil as it would kill the probiotics from the miso). Serve, add desired toppings and enjoy :)
