A simple meal that takes all of five minutes to prepare (provided you’ve already prepped some peanut sauce beforehand). Great if you are in a hurry.
I recently found little bundles of pasta made of yam-flour at my local asian market. The yam pasta is 100% gluten free, comes in little bundles floating in water. Because the packaging doesn’t have a lot more than the ingredients translated into English, I cannot tell how long “officially” the packaging suggests they need to cook. From my experience so far, these gluten-free goodies seem to be ready to eat and just require a quick reheating. Yams are high in fiber and nutrients, and these yam-flour pasta bundles are a fantastic alternative to my regular favorite (rice pasta).
To make this scrumptious gluten free meal you’ll need the following:
- Gluten Free Yam flour pasta bundles
- Peeled, cooked shrimp
- Gluten Free Peanut Sauce
If you have peeled cooked shrimp ready to go, great. If not, use frozen or fresh shrimp and fry them up quickly on the stove.
Drain the water from the yam-flour pasta package and rinse the yam pasta two or three times.
Arrange pasta on a plate place cooked shrimp and peanut sauce overtop and heat in the microwave for about 1 minute.
If you are adverse to using a microwave, place the yam pasta in a small pot with boiling water. Boil for 2-3 minutes, remove and drain. When shrimp are cooked, add the peanut sauce for 1-2 minutes in the frying pan to heat up the sauce. Pour shrimp and peanut sauce mix overtop the yam pasta.
