2 cloves garlic passed through a garlic press

2 cups shredded Savoy cabbage

2 thick carrots, peeled and cut into thin slices

5 egg whites, lightly beaten

3 cups bean sprouts

1 cup julienned green zucchini

1 cup green onions, chopped

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish

For the Sauce:

3 Tbsp  rice wine vinegar or rice vinegar

1/4 cup tomato paste

2 Tbsp reserved noodle water

2 Tbsp unsulfured molasses

2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or gluten-free tamari

Preparation:

1. Cover rice noodles with boiling water in a ceramic bowl. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes to soften noodles. Drain, reserving 2 Tbsp noodle water.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients. Set aside.

3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Stir in garlic, cabbage and carrot.  Stir-fry for 5 minutes. Make a well in the middle of the pan and scramble the egg whites. Add noodles and sauce and cook for 5 minutes. Add bean sprouts, zucchini and green onions and cook a little longer to heat through. Remove from heat and serve. Garnish each dish with chopped cilantro.
