Stir Fry

  • 14 oz rice noodles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 bell pepper red, yellow, or orange; thinly sliced
  • 5 cups tri-color coleslaw
  • 5 green onions for garnish sliced (optional)
  • ½ cup unsalted peanuts for garnish chopped, roasted (optional)
  • sesame seeds for garnish (optional)

Stir Fry Sauce

  • ¾ cup low-sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1-2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (depending on spice level)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  • Bring a 5 quart pot of salted water to a boil. Cook rice noodles according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, mix together all the ingredients for the stir fry sauce in a mixing bowl. Allow to sit so flavors can meld together.
  • Mince garlic. Thinly slice bell peppers into strips.
  • To a skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Turn stove to medium high, and allow olive oil to heat up for 1-2 minutes. Once oil is hot, add garlic, bell peppers, and cabbage. Cook until the vegetables are wilted (and have reduced in volume).
  • Add noodles and sauce to the skillet with the vegetables. Allow to cook for an additional 2-3 minutes on medium low heat.
  • In a dry pan, toast the unsalted peanuts on low heat for 5-8 minutes, while constantly moving the peanuts. Once done, the peanuts will become fragrant and darker brown in color.
  • Top the stir fry with peanuts, green onion (sliced along the bias), and sesame seeds.


This recipe has a salty bite to it. Be sure you use reduced sodium soy sauce to keep the salt content lower.
