Amino Noodles


I was ready to make spaghetti for dinner because it's easy and fast, and my kids love it. Since I make it with brown rice noodles is also detox friendly. BUT THEN... I saw it...behind the organic tomato sauce...the LIQUID AMINOS!!! So my cooking brain lit up. Instead of adding the tomato sauce I was gonna add to the easy italian dish,  I would add the same vegetables, plus a few more ingredients, and let our tastebuds travel to a different place.

Ingredientes

1 lb of organic ground turkey
4 Tbsps of liquid aminos
2 Tbsps of sesame oil
1 tsp of ground ginger
2 tsps of minced garlic
2 large portabella mushrooms (sliced)
1 red yellow bell pepper (sliced)
1 green bell pepper (sliced)
1 yellow bell pepper (sliced)
2 cups of broccoli
1/2 cup of chopped green onions
1 tsps of chili flakes (optional)
Sesame seeds
Brown rice noodles


Paso a paso:

1) Cook ground turkey with liquid aminos, the sesame oil, ground ginger and garlic. Make sure to cook thoroughly.


 2) On a separate pan heat up the olive oil, and add the mushrooms, bell peppers and broccoli, and sauté for about 5 mins. Add vegetables to cooked turkey and mix altogether with the green onions and optional chili flakes if you like spicy food. Set aside.


3) For this particular dinner, I used brown rice angel hair noodles, but you can use  your favorite detox friendly noodles and cook according to the instructions on the package.


4) When noodles are cooked, mix in with turkey and vegetables. Serve and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Eat with chopsticks if you'd like.
