Veggie noodle bowls

    45 min

    Try serving the rice noodles, crisp vegetables and fresh herbs in separate bowls and let each person assemble his or her own noodle bowl. I highly recommend that each person combines the soy sauce and wasabi individually, too - everyone knows how much wasabi they can handle!

    I have been searching for a recipe similar to what we enjoy in a local Vietnamese restaurant. I liked the idea of letting everyone top their noodles as they preferred, so I set out bowls of shredded veggies (carrots, cabbage, green onions, etc) coarsely crushed peanuts, fresh chopped cilantro, diced cooked meat (beef, chicken or shrimp,etc) and a bottle of sriracha sauce for extra flavor and heat. This is a fun meal to serve! Also, I have served the noodles in a spicy broth, with same toppings. Either way, it’s wonderful.  -  11 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is delicious! It's kinda like a fresh spring roll without the roll. I added shrimp and pork to make it a little more filling. I think it could have been improved with a different sauce that was thicker and richer than soy sauce -like some sort of teriyaki, stir fry or peanut sauce-, but as is, this is really really good.  -  12 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
