Grow Sprouts Indoors for A Nutritious Crunch All Year Long!
I grow my own sprouts all year long on my kitchen counters… and believe me, it couldn’t be easier! All you need are some sprouting seeds (I like these alfalfa seeds, and these bean sprouts), wide-mouth mason jars, sprouting lids, and some tap water. An endless supply of sprouts will be at your culinary fingertips anytime. I love grabbing a handful of alfalfa sprouts to add to a sandwich or a wrap, or adding a handful of bean sprouts to stir fries or ramen soup. I put together a list of all my favorite sprouting supplies – so you can enjoy fresh sprouts any time!

What’s In This Spicy Sesame and Garlic Noodles Recipe?
- Noodles: You can use rice noodles which are naturally gluten free, or a thick long noodle like fettuccini or linguine ( which you can also use gluten free). We always keep rice noodles in our pantry for a quick ramen or stir fry.
- Peanut Oil: a great high-heat oil, awesome for quick stir frying noodles or vegetables.
- Sesame Oil: I love adding sesame oil to almost any Asian-inspired dish. A great flavor from the toasted sesame seeds in these noodles.
- Soy Sauce or Tamari: Tamari is just a gluten-free version of soy sauce. I try to cook with tamari in recipes that I am making for a crowd, in case anyone is gluten free.
- Sriracha: we like to load on the spice! Sriracha is awesome to add into soups and noodle dishes, we always keep sriracha in our pantry to throw on soups, stir fries, and curries.
- Garlic: you can use fresh garlic, or this awesome jarred garlic which we keep around.
- Bean Sprouts
- Green Onion
- Sesame Seeds: I love throwing sesame seeds on top of noodle dishes, ramen, or anything that has sesame oil. These add a little crunch, texture, and flavor… especially if you toast them frist.
