Stir Fry Sauce

  • ½ cup tamari
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot starch or cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 2 ½ tablespoons almond butter
  • 3-4 tablespoons water

Stir Fry

  • 4 oz rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or other neutral oil
  • 1 lbs. (16oz) ground chicken
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into strips


  • In a small bowl, whisk together tamari and arrowroot starch. Then add remaining stir fry sauce ingredients except the water. Stir to completely combine and set aside.
  • Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add noodles and cook to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
  • While the water for the noodles is heating up, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon or spatula until it is cooked. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  • Add the peppers to the skillet and cook until slightly softened, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, give the sauce a good stir and pour it into the skillet. Add 4 tablespoons water and stir. Heat for 3-4 minutes then add the noodles.
  • Add the noodles and toss to coat. Cook for a couple of minutes until warmed. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately.
