I had all different vegetables in my produce drawer and I was lost as to what should my meatless Monday night dinner be? Summer can be such an exciting time in the kitchen, without spending too much of it laboring over the stove.

Green and red peppers, Zucchini, green beans,Tofu and scallions. I had everything but no new ideas! I definitely did NOT want to do another stir fry. My pantry had flat rice noodles and coconut milk. I decided use my green curry paste and noodles together instead of the same boring Thai vegetable curry with rice. And the end product was much tastier than takeout thai food. Of course, you can use what ever fresh vegetables you have available, it’s a pretty forgiving dish. I dressed the finished noodles with halved cherry tomatoes, cilantro and scallions.

My struggle to come up with gluten free ideas continues, vegetable pad thai, a great side dish with Salmon. I bought some wide rice noodles from an asian store some time ago, I figured it would be a good alternative to rice or quinoa. Lots of peppers, broccoli and red onions, scallions and sprouts, Pad thai can be really heart healthy and colorful. Peppers are a very high source of Vitamin C and other antioxidants,One small red, yellow or orange pepper provides three times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C; way ahead of citrus! Red peppers stand out as one of the few foods that contain lycopene, a carotenoid that lowers the risk of various cancers, including prostate and cervical cancer. These crimson packages are also packed with beta-carotene, converted to vitamin A in the body and essential for night vision. Nature’s best source of zeaxanthin, a compound known to protect against cataracts and macular degeneration, can be found in orange peppers.
