Ginger root contains gingerol, which is a beneficial phytochemical that packs an antioxidant punch. This compound can support immune function and heart health. Ginger is also a prebiotic, so it’s really great for gut health. Not only that, but it can help lower cholesterol and your risk for cancer. Of all of ginger’s benefits, it also has a unique and strong flavor that carries this dish.

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is a great vegan source for sweetness! It’s plant-derived and has tons of natural benefits including detoxifying properties for your immune function and skin health. It also has a lower Glycemic Index than sugar and it supplies essential vitamins and minerals that sugar does not have.

Rice Noodles

This recipe is made with rice noodles, which is the primary noodle for many Asian recipes. Rice noodles are lower in carbohydrates and calories than wheat noodles. They are also gluten-free for those that avoid gluten. Rice noodles even provide beneficial minerals such as manganese, selenium, and phosphorus, all of which are important for your overall health!

First, combine low sodium soy sauce, maple syrup, and water in a bowl. Cook the rice noodles according to their package. Meanwhile, heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Then, add in the yellow onion and garlic. Sauté until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Next, add your bell peppers and sauté for another 5 minutes until soft. Add your noodles and pour over the soy sauce mixture. Mix the noodles and cook until the sauce is somewhat sticky, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat, top with basil, and enjoy!
