Anything 20 minute is going to be key over the next little bit. This one is a staple in our house. It’s quick and easy, and forgiving. And even though it only takes 15 + minutes of active cooking time, the flavor is NOT lacking in the slightest. Also it gets in protein, veg, and you can basically serve it a top any grain. Can’t get better than that, especially as we are heading into the third full lockdown here in Israel.
A few notes before I get to the actual recipe. Going to keep this post short and sweet because that’s all anyone has time for these days, am I right?
- any veggie combo goes here. You have picky kids that only eat a certain veg? add it in! If they can’t handle any veg, totally fine too! leave it out! As I mentioned, this is a really forgiving recipe.
- I use coconut sugar for my sweetener but I realize this can get pricey. Feel free to swap with whatever sugar you have on hand: honey, maple syrup, even regular sugar will do (but shh I never said that 😉 Just swap with the same amount.
- I happen to really like serving this with rice noodles. Really been happy with the consistency of these ones from Kerem recently. And my kids enjoy it much more this way. If you need more “sauce” action, feel free to make extra glaze in a sauce pan and serve at the side for everyone to add freely. You can also just have some soy sauce and top the noodles that way.
Think that’s it guys. Hope this one saves your last minute family dinner prep as much as it has saved me!
