Kelp noodles are a gluten free noodle that supports healthy thyroid function by protecting your body from harmful radiation. The raw carrots in the recipe help detox ‘bad’ estrogen from the body which may help reduce PMS, menopause and perimenopause symptoms.
- 1 Tbs. Sesame Oil (light or toasted works fine)
- 1 cup Kelp Noodles (Find at health food stores)
- 2 Tbs. Coconut Aminos
- 1 Carrot, shredded
- 1 Baby Bok Choy, chopped
- 1 Scallion, minced
- 4 ounces of cooked Organic Chicken
- Black Sesame Seeds to garnish
- ¼ cup fresh Cilantro, chopped
- Sea Salt & Pepper, to taste
Drain the kelp noodles from the solution and soak in cold water for 10-15 minutes. Strain and set aside.
Start by cooking your chicken (time saver: purchase a cooked organic rotisserie chicken from your local market) and once cooked, allow to cool in the fridge.
In a medium size sauce pan, bring heat to medium-low. Add sesame oil, kelp noodles and coconut aminos and toss to combine.
Add chopped bok choy, shredded carrots and minced scallion. Toss again so that everything is evenly distributed. The veggies will wilt and marinate with the kelp noodles.
Coconut aminos gives this dish a salty flavor, but you can add additional sea salt and pepper to taste.
Remove from the stove and store in a portable serving container. Place cooked chicken on top of the noodles and garnish with black sesame seeds and chopped fresh cilantro.
Other ideas: Add diced avocado and fresh lime juice.
