Asian “No Mein” Bowl

Chinese food was my favorite food when I was pregnant. Udon noodles, big fat, gluten chewy noodles. And don’t forget the salty sodium filled – Soy sauce, oh yum.

Up until a few months ago, I didn’t know that Tamari was legal. I can’t tell you how excited I was. I read that it is legal because the Soy is fermented. Just use it sparingly and “test” your body.

The “noodles” in this bowl are so good, you really don’t have a clue that you are eating anything “different”. I did use my Spiral Slicer which makes this task MUCH easier. You can use your peeler if you don’t have one, just try to make really thin strips.

It all comes together so well. I love the spiciness, just to give it that known Asian great flavor. Of course, you can omit that if you wish. This bowl really is so delicious and really hits that Asian craving, pregnant or not.

Ingredients

  • 1/2lb Organic Chicken or Thin sliced Beef (Cut in chunks)
  • 1 Large Zucchini or Summer Squash (Peeled and spiral sliced)
  • 6oz Fresh Spinach
  • 4oz Shiitaki Mushrooms (Sliced)
  • 3 Green Onions (Scallion) (Chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Tamari ((Coconut aminos can be substituted for Paleo))

  • 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Coarse ground Black Pepper

Optional

  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper (Chopped)
  • 1 Organic large egg
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper

Directions

1. Start by cooking the Egg, breaking the yolk and breaking up the pieces in a Wok or frying pan. Set Egg aside when done. Then start warming the Sesame oil in a Wok or frying pan over medium heat.
2. Start dicing your Chicken or Beef and add to pan. Add the Ginger, Crushed Red Pepper, Black Pepper and 1/2 the Tamari to the pan. Let simmer.
3.
Peel your Zucchini and slice thin "noodles" or use your Spiral slicer. Get "noodles" into a pot half filled with water. Turn on medium heat.

4. Add the Mushrooms to the pan. Start chopping the Bell Pepper and Green Onion. Add to the pan and increase heat to medium-high.
5. Toss your "noodles" and see how they are doing, they will reduce is size quite a bit. When that happens they are done and need to be drained in a colander.
6.
Add in the Spinach and toss gently. Add the Egg back into the pan and the remainder of the Tamari.
