Meal planning is a huge part of my life as a single parent. Sometimes more a part of my life than I would like. The question of “what’s for dinner?” can definitely be a thorn in my side, and if I don’t have a solid meal plan then I either create something out of the pantry, or we are forced to take out, which is always SO expensive. So I like to keep my pantry stocked with some awesome staples that make it easy to come up with something on those forgot-to-meal-plan nights. And one of my FAVE things to keep stocked in my pantry is No Yolks noodles!
I remember my grandma used to make stroganoff with No Yolks – they practically scream childhood for me, so I just love them! But times and cuisine have changed a LOT since the 80s, and while stroganoff is one of my comfort food staples, No Yolks is SO much more versatile than that. First of all, it’s perfect for soups like miso, french onion, or my favorite, chicken noodle (love the No Yolks Broad Noodles for that). There are also a TON of different varieties, including Broad (my fave), Fine, Extra Broad, Kluski, Dumplings, and Stir-Fry. I am DEFINITELY looking forward to trying the new Stir-Fry noodles – we already use No Yolks in Asian dishes, so I can’t wait to try these.
I love No Yolks because they are a healthy egg noodle alternative with only egg whites, so there is no cholesterol and they are low in fat and sodium. But more important than that they are TASTY! They cook up smooth and firm and don’t break apart, which is a must!
We love experimenting with what we have on nights when we don’t have a particular plan- and Asian is one of our go-tos. I also have a crop share, so I always have TONS of veggies this time of year. We recently cooked up an easy and so yummy dish with No Yolks Broad noodles and a batch of yummy fresh green beans. This is SO easy guys! You cook your No Yolks noodles, and then in a pan with heated olive oil, you salt and cook the green beans, cut into 2-4 inch pieces. In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons gochujang red pepper paste (we order ours online!) and 6 oz of teriyaki glaze. After cooking and removing the green beans, add the No Yolks noodles to the hot pan and stir together with the teriyaki mixture. Salt to taste and you are DONE! This is easy, and perfect for Meatless Mondays!
