Hot and Sour Noodles

I made this last night and it came out very well. To make it truly fatfree, you need to leave off the peanuts. (But I was bad and ate the peanuts–they added a lot to it!)

    • Oven-Fried Eggplant PoBoy Sandwiches
      When I was creating my last recipe, Oven-Fried Okra, I suspected that the batter I used, a combination of cornmeal and brown rice flour, would make a wonderfully crunchy breading for other vegetables.
