Organic Brown Rice Noodles Pad Thai with Chicken and Tofu

Why not add the benefits of increased fiber and whole grain goodness to your next Pad Thai experience?  My friends at Explore Asian sell these naturally gluten-free noodles that are made from wholesome organic non-GMO brown rice, organic tapioca flour, and water  – authentically grown and processed in Thailand.

I use these Organic Brown Rice Noodles in my bold Pad Thai recipe – which includes eggs, chicken, and tofu plus a super-flavorful sauce and a high ratio of veggies, chilis, and peanuts. It is one protein-packed, very satisfying meal – colorful, spicy, and anything but dull!

Red Rice Pad Thai Noodles with Stir-Fried Tempeh and Savory Peanut Sauce {Vegan}
Red Rice Noodles
Stir-Fried Tempeh and Savory Peanut Sauce

Cucumber, Radish, Scallion, Cilantro, Peanut, Serrano Chile

Bursting with flavor. And color. And texture. And heat. May I say that this vegan dish has it all. Super satisfying organic red rice noodles are tossed with a savory peanut sauce that gets a hint of sweetness from agave nectar. Stir-fried tempeh cubes add substance and protein, radish adds a zingy crunch, while serranos bring fire which is balanced by cooling cucumber and herbaceous cilantro.

These Organic Red Rice Noodles from my friends at Explore Asian are a product of Thailand. Red rice called Kow Mun Pboo ข้าวมันปู in Thai, is a non-glutinous long grain rice that is reddish brown in color with a nutty flavor and a high nutritional value, as the germ of the rice is left intact. The noodles are made from organic rice, organic tapioca flour, and water only.

Shrimp Pad Thai & The Shrimp Plant

Justicia brandegeeana (Mexican Shrimp Plant or Shrimp Plant

Home renovations continue here at Chez Lori Lynn. The Brazilian granite counter is installed. Painting the walls and final electrical are all that are left of this project.

Rather than let those lovely branches go to waste, I saved them for arrangements. To my surprise they make striking centerpieces, which will definitely show up at parties in the future. And then the night’s dinner was inspired by those plants…
