Tonight’s dinner was all about teamwork!
Take rice noodle’s chewy, slippery texture, add in some protein packed, pressed tofu, and round it all out with the tangy zip of miracle whip gingery, savory salad dressing to make…
Cold Sesame Peanut Noodles!
Cold Sesame Peanut Noodles
1 chopped green onion
1 cup broccoli slaw
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1 serving cooked rice noodles (100g dry)
1 cup chopped cucumbers (leftover from last night’s dinner delivery service!)
1/4 cup Sesame Soy Ginger Vinaigrette (or any other comparable sauce)
1/2 block pressed extra firm tofu mixed with 1 tablespoon of dressing
10 minutes, people. TEN MINUTES to make this dish! And there’s literally one direction…toss!
Chewy rice noodles, salty peanuts & crunchy slaw – this salad was FULL of amazing textures!
And flavors, too! My secret trick to make the dish POP? A sprinkle of sesame seeds and drizzle of sesame oil on top at the end. Makes ALL the difference!
Full confession – this week’s meal plan somehow dissolved into thin air and I found myself with nothing on the schedule to make tonight. This dish was created completely on the fly…
And it all just worked! Don’t you love it when life works out like that?
Tonight Ben, my parents and I are heading down to the capital to listen to a symphony concert, followed by a spectacular fireworks display!
We go every year (including last year - oh great, now I want strawberry shortcakes…) although it’s usually on the 3rd or 4th. The party’s comin’ early this year, apparently!
Full report on the events tomorrow – wheee!
What are some of your quick & easy 10 minute dinner ideas?
Do you meal plan, or whip up meals on the fly every night?
