Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (500 ml) scallions (green onions), roots trimmed, thinly sliced (about 2 bunches)
  • ½ cup (125 ml) fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) rice vinegar
  • 1 package (2 cups/454 g) uncooked brown rice noodles

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine scallions, ginger, oil, soy sauce and vinegar. Let bowl rest at room temperature for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Remember, a little salt goes a long way. Taste the food before adding any.
