Sweet & Spicy Rice Noodles with Steamed Vegetables (Vegan, WFPB)

Many of us live extremely busy lives, which normally means getting home late and have a minimal amount of time to prepare dinner. I know that this is the case for Dr. Miller and myself on occasion and that is why I have come up with some really simple meals that I have found can be made in less than 20 minutes. A great trick I use regularly and show in todays sweet and spicy rice noodles with steamed vegetables recipe is steaming vegetables while boiling noodles. This can save a ton of precious minutes and its a great way to utilize just one stove top burner if you are making multiple dishes. When I make rice noodles I normally opt for tossing them in a simple sauce and then adding in the steamed vegetables.
