Semi-Homemade Thai Noodle SaladPosted: December 8, 2010
Remember the commercials for the fingertip toothbrushes a few years ago? Somebody tell me I wasn’t the only person who still knows the “rip, slip, brush, Ahhh” jingle!
With all those oh-so-important things floating around in my head, it’s no wonder I can’t remember basic mathematical formulas or the fact that my car insurance bill was due yesterday.
I couldn’t help but bop around my kitchen singing (in my head, of course) “Rip, Steam, Stir, Ahhh” as I whipped up tonight’s dinner. It was that simple, my friends.
I think Sandra Lee was right on the money with her “Semi-Homemade” idea.
I whipped up a box of Thai Kitchen Thai Peanut noodles and sauce, pan-browned some tofu in reduced sodium soy sauce, and steamed a half pound of fresh string beans and a half pound of snap peas.
Naturally, everything is more fun to eat with chopsticks 😉
The noodles are all natural, but lacking in much nutritional value straight out of the box. Two simple steps and another ten minutes rounded it out with some protein and veggies!
If only all of life were that simple!
What’s your favorite way to quickly alter a boxed/canned meal to up the health factor?
