MoFo'n Carrot and Rice Noodles in Sriracha Tahini Sauce for 1 in 10 Minutes or Less

Quick, easy and delicious. 

That's exactly what this dish is.

Hey we all know what busy looks like and we all have different ideas of what busy means. If you're like me, you keep busy with only things you love, because nobody has time to be busy doing stuff they don't like, right?!

You can probs guess I keep busy being an all the time mom, spouse, bff, daughter, etc. Those things are enough in itself to keep a gal busy but did you know that I'm also keeping myself busy with: a full time job doing 'important legal stuff' at law firm; 'noise glittering,' touring, recording with my band; creating and implementing social marketing campaigns pro bono for organizations that I support; and being an 'overall radass' vegan chef and caterer? - Yeah I stay pretty busy, which is why I only fill my time with things, people, etc., that I love.

Like this quick, easy, and delicious coodle-noodle hybrid that is ready in 10 minutes or less. It's my go-to meal because sometimes I only have 10 minutes to make din din. If you ever find yourself in a similar time crunch, consider this your lifesaver. It's perfect for when you need to whip up a single serving meal that's comforting, healthy, and will fill you up, but not weigh you down, in 10 minutes or less.

Seriously.
No fooling.
Carrot and Rice Noodles got your back.

Tip: the rice noodles need to soak in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, so while they're soaking, I spiralize the carrot, make the sauce, and chop some cilantro. When I'm done usually the noodles are too and it's time to throw down. 

(p.s. if you're interested in checking out the music I make you can listen here: Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud)




2 oz Thai rice noodles
1 carrot, spiralized into noodles or cut into thin strips
1 tbsp tahini
1/2 tbsp liquid aminos
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 tbsp sriracha - or less if you're not into the spice
1/2 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp sesame seeds, for serving
fresh cilantro, for serving
  1. Cook rice noodles according to package. Drain, rinse, and toss with carrot noodles in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together the tahini, liquid aminos, or soy sauce, lime juice, sriracha, and maple syrup to make the sauce.
  3. Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and cilantro.

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!)  InstagramTwitterFacebook, & Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

  2. I'll have to look into getting a spiralizer, but in the meantime, I think I'll just try this with carrot slices mixed in! :)

    1. You could do that or use a peeler to make flat wide carrot noodles. If you feel comfy with sending me your addy, I'll mail you my extra spiralizer.

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeños, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
