If I could eat Chinese food every day for the rest of my life, I’d die fat and happy.
Sadly, Chinese food isn’t exactly considered healthy… but it sure makes my taste buds dance!
I’m on a vegetable kick lately as we are going to Miami in a couple of months and the very thought of being on a beach with Miami girls makes me feel insecure. So, here is a healthy version of noodle-y, veggie, chow mein goodness that is bikini butt friendly!
BIKINI BUTT FRIENDLY NOODLE VEGETABLE CHOW MEIN
- 1 large daikon radish spiraled into noodles (can also use a veggie peeler, a knife, or a mandolin, but I use my veggie spiral slicer which I LOVE)
- 1 carton of shiitake mushrooms thinly sliced (stems removed)
- 2 baby bok choys chopped up
- 1 bell pepper sliced
- 1 sweet onion chopped
- 1/2 cup of grated carrot
- 1 heaping cup of snap peas
- 1 handful of spinach
- 1 garlic glove smashed and chopped (or grated)
- 1 tbsp of grated fresh ginger
- 4 tbsp of soy sauce
- 4 tbsp of sesame oil
- 2 tbsp of honey
- 1 tsp of EVOO
- 1 splash of red wine vinegar
- To make the sauce, combine ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, EVOO & red wine vinegar in a bowl and stir well.
- In a wok, sauté EVOO with the onion and garlic until starts to become tender
- Add mushrooms to the wok and sauté until mushrooms begin to become tender
- Add the bell pepper, bok choy and snap peas to the wok until the peas become bright green
- Add in the carrots and spinach
- Once spinach starts to wilt, add in the sauce and combine everything evenly
- Lastly toss in those daikon noodles to the party, sauté everything for about 5 minutes until the noodles start to become slightly cooked
- Serve with sesame seeds and chopped green onions on topTwirl those noodles round and round, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised how hearty, filling and delicious this dish truly is!
Could easily add baby corn and/or brocolli to the dish as well.
Or chicken, shrimp, ribs… whatever floats your boat.
Would love to hear what you lovelies think of this butt friendly dish! This one was also husband approved… as long as the noodles are twirly, I have a happy hubby!
