Broccoli for One
My 6 little broccoli plants produced enough sprouts just for me for dinner today :-) I made soba noodles, and used the broccoli instead of snow peas. The sauce is easy to make, just add it to the noodles. The broccoli can be added to the noodles while they're cooking, just at the end. This recipe is from Eat, Drink, and be Vegan, by Dreena Burton. Sesame Lime Soba Noodles with Shiitake Mushrooms & Snow Peas ( or Broccoli, as in my recipe) Sauce ingredients: 1 Tb. Hoisin sauce 3 1/2 Tb. tamari 1 and 1/2 Tb. fresh ginger chopped 2 garlic cloves 3 Tb. fresh lime juice 2 Tb. apple cidre vinegar 2 1/2 Tb. toasted sesame oil 3 Tb. agave nectar (or honey) pour this over the noodles and add sauteed mushrooms, 1 cup sliced green onions, slivers of red pepper, 2 Tb. toasted sesame seeds, and 1/2 cup cilantro. Top with a bit more sesame oil. This recipe is good for lunch the next day, too.
