I’m having a bit of a love affair with bowls.
Quinoa bowls, rice bowls, and most recently, noodle bowls. Now we all know I’ve had a thing for food in bowls for quite some time, but noodles have recently become the latest and greatest thing in my house.
They are also very helpful for getting a toddler to eat their dinner. I bet you didn’t know that long and slurpable noodles were just about the funniest thing on this planet? And eating them? Well the most fun ever!
What also helps is the delicious sesame peanut sauce that gets poured over top of these extra fun noodles. And my daughter is the sauce queen – having recently discovered the wonders of hollandaise sauce, this rich and creamy sauce is now the new fave.
Any long noodle would work in this dish. Having made this more than once recently, I’ve tried my share of noodle varieties. One of my favourites is the sweet potato noodle. They are so hard to find in the regular grocery store, but a friend of mine snagged a package for me in Kensington market. I just love how chewy they are. But rice noodles would be a close second and those are readily found in your local grocery store.
Ditch the plate, grab a bowl of noodles, and douse ’em with sauce!
