Ginger Rice Noodles with Soy Brown Butter Sauce

Here is a quick, easy, gluten-free dish that is also amazing.  The ginger, edamame, scallions and cabbage added to the texture, color and flavor.  Other proteins can be substitutes for the ground chicken (ground beef or pork, tofu or shredded chicken).  The fact that it is gluten-free is great - it fits in with Foodie Mama's current eating habits.

This recipe is for two and takes 30 minutes, tops, to prepare.

Just Crunchin' on My Broccoli, and You?

I cannot believe that I am in my 2nd half century and I have never eaten roasted broccoli.  I have found a new way to love my veggies.  Broccoli is probably one of my least favorite; steamed (bland), raw (tasteless) or loaded with butter (unhealthy and still wilted and ick).

While I have roasted vegetables before (you can see several entries in this blog as such) I have never done so with a result of such a crispy, crunchy texture as this easy and fast recipe for Baby Broccoli with Sunflower Seeds.

Give broccoli another chance and try this recipe, you may just like it.
