Who doesn’t love a fresh summer roll on a hot summer night? Crisp veggies, avocado, and herbs all rolled into a dainty little rice wrap dipped in a sauce of your choice. The good news is that they’re easier than easy to make. This recipe is perfect for a mid-week dinner, so start your shopping list and let’s get rollin’!
We’ve all been there- you’re craving something tasty, but nothing too unhealthy to make you feel like you’ve gained 10 pounds. You want something home cooked, but nothing that will take four hours to make or involve serious skill. The answer to your hunger? Zoodles. Zoodles: otherwise known as spiralized zucchini, are taking over the foodie world. Zucchini noodles, get it? Okay moving on… they’re a fresh, veggie alternative to pasta, that when sautéed and prepared accordingly, can be seriously tasty.
Now I know some of you are already reading this post thinking “I don’t have a clue how to spiralize a zucchini, nor do I want to take the time to do so”. Well, friend, you don’t have to, because you can buy zoodles. Whole Foods (and Heinens if you’re in the CLE/CHI area) sells pre-packaged fresh zoodles in their prepared produce section. (Look for green squiggly noodles) I’d bet if you ventured into your local grocery store, chances are you’d find some zoodles. So, without further adieu, let’s get to making some chicken parmesan and spicy zoodles. Gluten free, of course!
This post is going to be a short one- honestly I feel silly blogging about something so simple, but they’re worth it. I served these roasted brussel sprouts to my friends the other night with two options: the balsamic glaze, and a lemon aioli. They were gone in 10 mins flat! Whip these up on a week night for yourself, or impressive the heck out of your friends and family at a dinner party. I promise these will not disappoint!
Happy New Year friends! I know, I know, it’s been awhile since I last posted… I’ll be honest with you all, between the picture taking, the uploading, creating new content, and posting; blogging can be a ton of work! I think I got stuck after my last couple of posts. I was always worrying that if I didn’t have enough pictures, or if my recipes were too simple, you all wouldn’t want to keep coming back to Lifesabeacham.com… but then I realized, that’s what life is, right? Life is a simple recipe to look forward to making on a week night, life is the sweet sale you scored online after the holidays, life is binge watching Making a Murderer and being equally as happy as if you’d gone out and hit the town. Life for us 20 somethings isn’t always so glamorous, and so I’ve dedicated my New Year’s resolution to you all: I’ll blog the simple things. The stuff you all can head on over to my blog for to spice up your week, and remember to enjoy the simple things.
All that being said, what could be more simple than a crockpot recipe to try one night this week? Did anyone get one for christmas and panic? This post is for you my friend… you now officially have the recipe for Thai chicken noodle bowls with peanut sauce and spicy Siracha slaw. YAAAS.
