This recipe all started out with an epic trip to Costco. I mean, let’s be real, what trip to Costco isn’t epic?? But this trip was especially epic because of all the new goodies I found!
I’m one of those people that hits Costco in the morning as soon as they open their gate— mostly so I don’t have to deal with the crazy crowds and ridiculously long check out lines. Also, it gives me maximum perusing time, rolling aisle by aisle with my massive cart, checking out all their new goods that I would have never imagined they’d have at Costco. And today’s magical product: Brown Rice and Millet RAMEN!!
Have you ever seen this brand before (ps they’re much cheaper at Costco, like $8 for a huge bag)?? Words can’t describe how hooked I’ve been since I found them.
So, you guys already know about my obsession with ramen from my previous recipes and crazy amount of Instagram posts. Seriously slurp-able soup packed with noodles and toppings, on toppings, on toppings— I’m always in. But now that I found gluten free, whole grain, utterly delicious ramen noodle brand for, honestly, pretty darn cheap, you bet I was trying out lots of fun, noodleicious recipes (yes, I did just invent a word), some even that don’t involve soup (it was tough, but I did it).
My favorite one thus far is this super simple vegetable ramen stir fry. Maybe it’s my favorite because it takes only 15 minutes to make. Maybe it’s my favorite because it’s jam-packed with lots of green veggies. Maybe it’s my favorite because it’s smothered in the most delicious salty-spicy-stir fry sauce. Or maybe it’s my favorite just because it involves these noodles!
Or all of the above 😉
If you read my post on Monday, you already know that this month I’ll be sharing a variety of gluten-free recipes with you— yep, all March long! I’ve been striving to create a “gluten-balance” in my diet, not by cutting gluten out, but by eating it in moderation (just like most other things). I’m hoping these recipes will give you some alternatives and easy substitutions for typical gluten-laden dishes. I’ll be introducing you to some new ingredients that I’ve been loving (like today), sharing lots of new dishes for all meals of the day, and offering some easy substitutions to create that balance in your life.
