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.
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
- Cook rice noodles according to package. Drain, rinse, and toss with carrot noodles in a bowl.
- In a separate bowl, stir together the tahini, liquid aminos, or soy sauce, lime juice, sriracha, and maple syrup to make the sauce.

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, & 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.
