This is a great idea for those who love their veggies but are steering clear of gluten and grains. It’s quick, tasty, and very satisfying! Plus, the older kids can help with some of the prep! My kids love the noodles and the “little corns” in this recipe — especially my toddler! So it is a wonderful recipe for the entire family to enjoy!

The macros exclude the rice noodles because you may want to enjoy this over courgette or even konjac noodles if you are living very low carb.
