Noodles are great any day. I like my pastas for sure, but Asian cuisines bring a lot of bold flavors to noodles – from sour to spicy to savory. And they’re really not too hard to stir-fry!
What I also love about these noodles – and other Asian noodle stir-fries – is that it’s quite easy to add plenty of veggies. Plus, they taste great stir-fried, soaking all the flavors of the sauce.
The broccoli in this one really mops up the sauce here. Which is great and flavorful, while doing a lot for your health. Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable afterall, which includes brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage. This family of veggies is great because they are loaded with vitamins and minerals, but more importantly, sulforaphanes. These guys are pretty powerful and are the subject of lots of research into reducing risk of heart attack, cancer, and more. If there is any family of veggies you want to eat, it’s this one.
Of course, broccoli has plenty of other compounds like Vitamin K that aids in proper blood clotting, fiber for digestion (it looks like it could literally mop up your GI), and potassium for regular function of your heart and nerves.
