INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – You are not what you eat, but you are what your body digests and absorbs.
Fresh, high quality ingredients create optimal digestion for vitamin absorption and Gr8 health.
Asian take-out is always delicious and convenient, but too often loaded with excess oil.
Here is a healthy alternative:
- 7 oz. chow mein stir-fry noodles
- 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
- 3/4 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- Pepper flakes
- 1/8 tsp. Chinese 5 spice powder
- 1 cup trimmed snow peas
- 6 oz. baby spinach leaves
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tbsp. sweet Mirin
- Juice from 1 orange
- 1 tbsp. orange zest
- 1 tbsp. wheat-free soy sauce mixed with 1 tsp. corn starch, orange juice and Mirin
- Cook noodles per package instructions. (Delicate rice noodles take less time so be careful not to overcook.)
- Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add shrimp, hot peppers, 5-spice and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until done.
- Add snow peas, spinach leaves and green onions; sauté 30 seconds.
- In a small bowl, whisk together Mirin, cornstarch, and the juice from the orange to make a slurry.
- Slowly pour slurry into skillet and let simmer until it slightly thickens. Don’t walk away. If it gets too thick, just add water.
- Add noodles; gently toss.
- Garnish with orange zest.
