Ever been in the produce section of the grocery store, and while picking up a package of your favorite salad blend you notice that container of broccoli shreds? You know, it resembles the bag of shredded cabbage and carrots for a make-quick coleslaw, but it's green?
Well I've grabbed a bag here and there, usually when it's warmer out though. I'll mix it with a zesty garlic dressing and toss in some grilled shrimp for a light and delicious quick summer dinner. But what else could I use it for? I mean it's broccoli for crying out loud! Accompanied with nutrient rich carrots and purple cabbage. It's a package full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber goodness and mercy! What else would make it sing as a side or a main?
Enter Broccoli Slaw & Rice Noodle Stir-fry!
What an absolute genius way to make this convenient crisp and crunchy veggie mix sing! I mean, in 15 minutes or less this light and healthy dish comes together with great texture and Asian flare! Kicking it up a notch and stepping outside-of-the box, I opt for the rice 'noodle' as opposed to the more traditional long or short rice grain. Add your choice of grilled, baked, or broiled protein such as chicken, tofu, and/or seafood, and you're set for a one pan experience! However, my preference is having it alone as a noodle bowl with the addition of only a splash of sriracha.
I say an 'additional' splash of sriracha because the recipe calls for my ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce to be mixed in the dish which includes the spicy condiment. Now, feel free to use your favorite store bought sauce, I just love this sauce because I know exactly what's in it and don't have to worry about the extra ingredients I don't need.
ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce
It's simple, just mix together:
This sauce brings the dish together in such a delicious way, it's no wonder I chose to devour it all by itself!
How would you serve this dish? Are you solo, or would you top it?
