Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice Noodles

This recipe for Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice Noodles has been inspired by two (2) dishes.  Lenny’s love of good Pad Thai, and a recipe I saw over at Food 52 for a Pad Thai Redux.  I enjoy a really good Pad Thai, but find that the ones being served at most restaurants is not up to par.  Unless I make it, we never have it.

Vegetable Stir Fry with Rice Noodles

After playing with the recipe I found at Food 52, it was confirmed that I could not call it Pad Thai.  The Pad Thai police would have been hunting me down … and it really wasn’t Pad Thai.  A pretty darn close second but still not the real thing.  Nevertheless, we loved the recipe, so I tweaked it a few more times and finally we had a recipe we were doing flips over.

We both enjoy a lot of flavor with subtle spice;  this recipe has it.  I used a combination of lime juice, soy, ginger syrup (Morris Kitchen – our fave) and spicy sriracha to season the veggies and noodles.  One thing that I really loved about the redux recipe was the use of watercress.  Big fan of zesty watercress, and it adds a wonderful zip to this finished dish.  This is definitely a recipe that you can use lots of Spring and Summer time veggies in.  When I recently made it I used lots of baby bok choy and sugar snap peas.  Just load it up with your favorite spring time greens, and enjoy the spicy noodles!!  I promise you will not only enjoy this on Meatless Mondays but also on Tuesday, Wednesday or even Saturday!

Happy Monday!
