Glass Noodles With Veggies and Tofu
Since the pandemic forbad us from traveling and going to restaurants, my stomach started to be annoyed by the endless pasta and risotto I ate during the lockdown in Italy after 2 years of living abroad.
I then decided it was about time to explore the Asian cuisine I love so much. These noodles are easy and fast to replicate at home with little effort but big satisfaction!
I bought some glass noodles, firm tofu and veggies, all low in FODMAPs.
Please beware that it's very important to soak the noodles in warm water for at least 30 minutes prior to the cooking to make them low FODMAP. Same with tofu, you need to buy the firm or the extra firm to avoid unwanted and unpleasant reactions from your gut.
My family loved the dish. It is juicy and tasty. I have to admit I am really proud of the result as my first approach to Asian cuisine!
Enjoy this colorful plate!
