500g meat of your choice, flash fried in a little coconut oil (free-range chicken strips, grass-fed steak – thinly sliced or shrimp) or omit for vegetarian option
1 package organic rice noodles or Zoodles
1 red pepper
½ a yellow onion
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup green or purple cabbage, thinly shaved
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 egg, beaten
½ cup cashews or almonds, chopped
¼ cup sesame seeds
½ cup fresh herbs like coriander, green onions, and basil, chopped
For the Sauce:
3 tablespoons fish sauce or vegan fish sauce substitute
Sweetener of your choice, to taste (honey, xylitol, erythritol)
3 tablespoons gut healing bone broth or vegetable stock
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
1 teaspoon chilli paste (Optional)
- Place the uncooked noodles in a bowl of cold water to soak (if using).
- Spiralize the zucchini, red pepper, and onion into noodle-like shapes or thinly slice them julienne style. Cut the carrots into very small pieces.
- Shake up the sauce ingredients in a jar.
- Heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add the veggies and prefer flash fried meat and stir-fry with tongs until the veggies are tender-crisp. Be careful not to overcook them they’ll get soggy and limp. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
- Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan. Drain the rice noodles they should be softened by now (if using). Add the rice or zucchini noodles to the hot pan and stir-fry for a minute or two, using tongs to toss until they are the texture you like. Add the sauce and stir-fry for another minute or two, until the sauce is starting to thicken and stick to the noodles. Push the noodles aside to make a little room for the egg, pour the beaten egg into the pan and let it sit for 30 seconds or so. Toss everything around with the tongs. The egg mixture will stick to the noodles and everything will start getting sticky.
- Now add in the vegetables and meat, toss together, and remove from heat. Stir in the nuts and herbs and serve immediately.
P.S. this recipe also works really well without meat, so, it can be enjoyed as a vegetarian option.
