The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook

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

2. In a small bow, 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 onion and cook a little longer to heat through. Remove from heat and serve. Garnish each dish with chopped cilantro.

Personal Tip: for additional protein, add cooked chicken breast.
