Rice Bowl Recipe

On game days when I know the family will be running around and there’s not a moment to spare I like to prepare meals ahead of time that are quick, easy, and healthy. This rice noodle bowl is the perfect example of all that, it’s especially time-saving if you prep the ingredients the night before.

I found this recipe on Pinterest, (I included the link below) which I must admit I have an unhealthy addiction to, but we can save that for another day. The recipe is great as is ,but I have tweaked it a bit  to suit my own personal taste. Feel free to experiment, that’s what I love about cooking.

I followed the recipe exactly as it states but made the following changes to the sauce; I doubled the amount of maple syrup, and also added an equal amount of agave. Also, I added 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, I must admit I love garlic in most dishes; but especially in my Cuban, Italian and Asian food. And last but not least, I added the zest of one small lime and it’s juice.

If you plan on taking the dish with you I recommend not adding the sauce until you’re ready to eat. This will keep the noodles and vegetables from becoming soggy. Keeping everything in the cooler should keep it all fresh and ready for you and your family. Also, for a different take on this recipe I stirfried the noodles and veggies, and served the dish warm, we enjoyed the noodle bowl both as a cold or hot dish.
