Sweet and Sour Rice Noodles
I miss Asian food. Not as much as I missed Italian food when I was dairy free, but as you all know Asian is my second fave. I went to my food store the other day and looked through all of their pre-made sauces for ones that were soy free. Luckily I found a jar of sweet and sour sauce that was soy free so I happily grabbed it and headed home. I wasn't sure what I felt like making but I knew it needed to be quick. Enter this rice noodle dish. I love using rice noodles- I love the texture! When I made this there wasn't enough sauce, so I am going to double it for my directions below. Like any Asian dish it shouldn't be swimming in sauce, so add some, stir, and add more as needed.
