Do you have a go-to comfort food?
I’ve been trying to decide on my favorite, but I’m having trouble narrowing it down to a single item. Sometimes I crave a buttery grilled cheese sandwich (made by my mom, of course). Other times I dream about warm chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. And then there are those days when only a big glass of red wine will do the trick. Real talk.
Foods with noodles also tend to take top billing when I’m in need of a little comforting. I guess there is something strangely appealing about loosing yourself in the act of twirling and slurping up a big bowl of noodles. It’s almost hypnotic in a way.
This Vegetable Noodle Stir Fry with Orange has been my dinner of choice for the past few nights. It’s comforting, flavorful and so much healthier than typical take-out noodles. And I bet you can have it made and on the table in less time than it would take you to go pick something up or have something delivered. In fact, this recipe comes together SO QUICKLY that I highly recommend having all your ingredients prepped and nearby before you start cooking. You won’t have much of a chance to rummage through your cabinets or slice and dice vegetables once you get your skillet heated.
I’m sharing this Vegetable Noodle Stir Fry with Orange as part of our monthly 30 Minute Thursday series. Be sure to scroll down and check out the links below to see what my blogging friend made this month. And skip the take-out!
