mung bean threads1 package bean threads (also called mung bean threads)  Pictured here – you can find these in the Asian or Ethnic food section of most grocery stores.   These are a great noodle alternative and acceptable in moderation on the Advanced Plan.

2 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp tamari or liquid aminos

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 clove garlic, pressed or minced

1 oz fresh ginger, peeled and grated

1 small onion, chopped

3 cups spinach

Soak bean threads in filtered water for 10 – 15 minutes and drain.  Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil and stir fry the ginger and garlic for about a minute.  Add onion and cook for another 5 minutes.  Add spinach and 1 tbsp tamari, sautee for about a minute and transfer to a dish.  Heat another tablespoon of the oil along with the rest of the soy sauce and sesame oil and drained bean threads.  Stir fry for about 5 minutes and fold in the vegetable mixture.
