Stir-Fried Vegetables & Bacon on Rice Noodles

Sometimes I wish my food looked at good as it tasted. While the photo above almost looks like a bunch of slop on some noodles, it is so yummy, and one of my constant ‘go to’ easy meals.

Rice Noodles

I absolutely love rice noodles! They are a great alternative to pasta, because gluten free pasta can be expensive, and you can get large packs of rice vermicelli noodles really cheaply. They make a great meal base and should be a staple food in any gluten free household.

Anyway, I cooked up a stir-friend vegetables with bacon on rice noodles – and here is the recipe:

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 150 grams of Diced Bacon
  • 10 Brown Mushrooms
  • 1 Green Zucchini
  • Half a Capsicum
  • A Handful of Brussel Sprouts
  • 2 Diced Tomatoes
  • 125 grams of Rice Vermicelli
  • 2 Tbs of Gluten Free Flour
  • Herbs to Taste

Method:

- Cook diced bacon on medium-high heat in frying pan.

- Dice all vegetables into large cubes (just halve the brussel sprouts).

- Once bacon is cooked, lower fry pan heat to medium and add vegetables. (I left bacon in, but you could also remove bacon and add it when plating your food).

* You may wish to leave the tomatoes out until you have browned the other vegetables.

- Add herbs and seasoning to taste. ( I added oregano, italian herbs, garlic powder an salt)

- Submerge rice vermicelli in boiling water until soft.

- Continue to stir-fly until vegetables are soft and the tomatoes have turned into  your sauce.

- Drain water from noodles. (drain well as these noodles seem to hold water better than most pastas)

- Serve your finished meal.

 

Obviously other vegetables can easily be added or substituted.

The best thing about this meal is that it is quick. All preparation can be done while the bacon is cooking, which means that it makes the perfect meal for a busy gluten free family.

NOTE: We sometimes remove the tomatoes and instead add a couple of spoons of soy sauce. It makes for a great alternative, but not all soy sauce is gluten free – so make sure you check the labels.
