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!) I served it with some broccoli, carrots, and cabbage that I steam-fried with garlic and ginger and finished off with a splash of soy sauce. The vegetables were a real hit!

    • Pinquito Bean and Quinoa Taco Filling
