Ginger Citrus Rice Noodles

First, listen to this:
Good, yes.  Don't you feel all happy and cozy nowI heard this song on my commute to work yesterday and it sealed the rest of the ride as good stuff.  

Moving on.  

While we're feeling happy and cozy, let's talk about noodles!

Noodles, noodles, glorious noodles.  They are my go to comfort food.  

They are also the basis of many stellar vegan dishes.  Well, some noodles.  Soba noodles.  Rice noodles.  Gotta check that label.  Gotta make sure there's not some sort of hidden egg situation happening.  Not cool

So I'm still doing my thing as a 1/7 vegan and I've got to say it's going well!  You haven't seen many recipes as I eat lots of the same stuff week to week.  Avocados.  Black Beans.  Quinoa.  Triscuits.  Hummus.  Granola barsThat's all good stuff, for sure, but this recipe here was a nice little break from the ordinary.   
 The original recipe called for Soba noodles; I couldn't find them and substituted rice instead.  Alls well that ends well and this dish did just that...it ended well.  It was even given an enthusiastic thumbs by my 0/7 vegan husband who had just enjoyed a big 'ole take out order of orange chicken.  Score one for meat free!   
out pesky shadow!
