A delicious gluten-free, vegan Chinese meal made with vegetables and Mei Fun brown rice noodles in a creamy red curry sauce!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Suncore Foods. The opinions and text are all mine. The Suncore product mentioned in this post was sent to me as a gift to use in this recipe, thank you so much!
I continue to come back to Asian cuisine, why?! Well for many reasons: it’s different, it’s delicious, it’s loaded with amazing ingredients that I might not otherwise use, it’s healthy, it’s easy, it lends itself to be readily adaptable to gluten-free and vegan cooking… and the list goes on.
So when I was deciding on what recipe to create I went back and forth with a few different ideas. Should I make a traditional curry? Should I attempt my hand at potstickers? (Totally at the top of my recipe idea list, stay tuned) I headed to my pantry to brainstorm- and lo and behold there was a box of Mei Fun noodles that I bought a little wbile back not having a plan in mind, but sounded, well, fun! So here we are, Red Curry Vegetable Mei Fun!
What exactly is Mei Fun? Mei fun is a well known form of thin noodles that have traditionally been made with just rice and water. It has now been developed in other parts of the world to include a wide range of ingredients, but I’m sticking with the traditional brown rice version here. In my world, less is often more.
Now since we’re having Fun, let’s take a peek at this party in a bowl!
☆ gluten-free Mei Fun noodles
☆ red curry paste
☆ Suncore Foods® Organic Red Turmeric Powder
☆ coconut milk
☆ napa cabbage
☆ sweet potato
☆ shiitake mushrooms
☆ curry powder
Ok, hold up- red turmeric powder? Red turmeric comes from red turmeric roots which are grown in rare black soil. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties and can improve appetite and liver function.* So not only is this a fantastically delicious recipe, it packs some pretty good health benefits too!
This dish comes together in about 30 minutes, and bonus! You can have this cold for lunch the next day as a noodle salad! So head on over to SUNCORE FOODS to get your Organic Red Turmeric Powder and let’s have some Fun! As always I love to see your re-creations of my recipes so be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook!
