As a bachelorette most nights are meals for one ... this recipe makes me feel like i'm eating out ... but i'm still at home :D The sauce and filling vary with what i have on hand ... but its super simple and exotic at the same time! You can get the rice noodles at any asian store ... i think trader joes caries them too :D The seitan can be replaced with beefless strips from trader joes or your favorite seafood/meat. —amreen
Dice the seitan. Heat chili oil in saute pan. Add the juice of the lime and half of the cilantro. Saute for a few minutes.
Boil water in a soup pot. Add the noodles and let simmer for 5 minutes.
While the noodles are boiling make the sauce by combining all the liquid ingredients.
Remove the noodles from the hot water and wash them with cool water to stop the cooking.
Place the noodles in a bowl. Top them with the seitan mixture, diced red bell pepper and remaining cilantro. Pour the sauce over the bowl and dig in! A glass of sake or Tsingtao makes the meal complete!
I am one of the rare northern Cali girls who hearts LA. My family hails from India via Kenya and being a good little south asian i spent many of my young years in the kitchen. Surrounded by good food from birth (thanks mom!) i have always loved cooking, eating and learning about food. In recent years i have developed an interest in the history of food and its cultural connection particularly in how imperialism and colonization has had an influence on cuisines of the world. This blog is my way of exploring the amazing web of nourishment that sustains us.
