When it comes to quick and delicious weeknight dinners, noodle bowls are definitely at the top of my list. There are endless combinations of ingredients and flavours- you can make a completely new dish every time! The best part is that you can usually whip these up with ingredients you probably already have on hand, AND this recipe is ready in only 20 minutes. It’ll be on the table in less time than ordering takeout!
I always keep a few cans of coconut milk in my pantry for fast stir-fry meals. It adds a little extra layer of flavour to so many dishes, and is always a crowd pleaser!
This recipe features bell peppers, bok choy, and onions, but feel free to get creative and use up whatever ingredients you have in the fridge! These type of meals are great for the end of the week when you’ve got a little of this and a little of that left to use up. Greens like kale or spinach, and other veggies like carrots would be fantastic in here as well!
I often use rice noodles vs rice because they cook much faster. Just a few minutes in boiling water and they’re ready, vs spending 20-30 minutes cooking rice!
