"A satisfied customer-we should have him stuffed!" -Basil Fawlty, Owner, Fawlty Towers

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love teriyaki. Making your own sauce is easy and there are endless variations with most including soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sugar or molasses. Some contain citrus like orange or grapefruit.

There are some good bottled sauces on the market, and this is one of those meals that if you use a bottled sauce it makes for a really fast weekday meal. There are low sodium versions and San-J even makes their teriyaki with gluten free tamari sauce.

  • 3 ounces rice noodles
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 large green onions (sliced crosswise)
  • 1 large carrot (peeled and diced)

Place the water in a large stock pot over high heat. When the water boils add the rice noodles. Cook the noodles for 2 minutes and remove the pot from the heat.

While the noodles are cooking, place the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add the green onions and cook for one minute stirring frequently.

Add the carrots and red pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for two minutes. Add the mushrooms and peas and cook for 3 minutes.

Add the pepper and noodles to the pot and stir. If the sauce is too thick add water from the noodle pot one tablespoon at a time. Serve.
