- My Notes -

  • 2 cup Rice Noodles - cooked
  • 4 tablespoon Wheat Free Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Clover Honey
  • 2 teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 0.5 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 package Tempeh - boiled and cut into strips
  • 0.33 cup Peanuts - chopped
  • 4 Green Onion - chopped (green parts only)
  • 0.25 cup Fresh Cilantro - chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Peanut Butter
  • 0.13 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 head Lettuce - butter lettuce
  • Cook rice noodles according to package. Set aside.
  • To make homemade hoisin sauce, whisk together tamari, honey, vinegar, sesame oil, black pepper in a small bowl and season further with salt and pepper.
  • In a medium sized skillet, heated over medium heat add the tempeh, peanuts, green onions, cilantro and homemade hoisin sauce. Sauté until the tempeh is completely warmed throughout. Set aside.
  • To serve: layer the rice noodles and tempeh in a butter lettuce leaf and garnish with chopped peanuts.
For more garlic flavor, add 1-2 small pinches of Gluten Free Asafoetida to the medium sized skillet, prior to adding the tempeh. Sauté 2-3 minutes, until you smell garlic and onion aroma. Then add the tempeh and continue with the recipe.
Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea). Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
