Weeknight 7-ingredient stir-fry noodles

VEGETARIAN, VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE

With plenty of holiday eating and festivities, we always need comforting foods to keep us going the rest of the non-partying days. 😆 Here is a easy stir-fry with simple rice noodles. This dish has a total of 7 ingredients with the main taste factor being crunchy purple cabbage. 

Onions, jalapeño, purple cabbage, tofu, and roasted & crushed peanuts. One more secret ingredient – seasoning of choice; I love Penzey’s spices and used Bangkok seasoning to flavor-up the noodles. Another important flavor profile is cold pressed Sesame oil, which adds a simple yet powerful aroma to the dish. 

Easy peasy recipe, 

☝️ Cook noodles and keep it ready

✌️Crisp up tofu strips and set aside

🤟 In a large wok, start to stir-fry onions, jalapeños, and cabbage

Now, how easy is that? 🤗 This dish is super comforting and the perfect weeknight meal which still makes for a beautiful picture during the holidays. 

Note – Keep the purple cabbage crisp which means cooking time is practically only 5 minutes 🤷🏻‍♀️
