Broccoli & Sweet Potato Glass Noodle Bowl

Updated: Dec 21, 2019

I changed quite a bit on this one, so if you want the original, use the links. The biggest change I made was using sweet potato glass noodles instead of rice noodles. Several benefits, I think:


  • They're only 90 calories per serving, as compared to 190 cal in rice noodles

  • The have half the carbs of rice noodles

  • Only drawbacks: no iron and no protein, but I'm not super interested in that much protein anyway

Ingredients

2 tbsp garlic infused EVO

1 small head of #broccoli, florets only

1/4-1/2 cup of hot veggie broth

1 14-oz can of #chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/4 tsp salt

2 servings of Chung Jung One sweet potato glass noodles

1 cup of so of cherry #tomatoes, halved

Coconut aminos, to taste

Black pepper

Cashew sour cream (Oh She Glows recipe linked above)


Instructions

I made the cashew cream ahead of time. Keep in mind, it only takes a minute of activity to prepare it, but the cashews do need to soak in hot water for at least 20 minutes.


Then I put a pot on to get it boiling. The glass noodles will only take 6 minutes once the water is ready. Drain the pot and set aside if these finish before your broccoli.


While waiting for the pot come to a boil, heat up a thick-bottomed saucepan with EVO and add florets. Cook for a minute and then add hot broth. Cover the pan with a lid and let the broccoli simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the chickpeas and salt. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove the heat.


Assemble the bowls: noodles, broccoli-chickpea mix, tomatoes and cashew sour cream. Enjoy!
