2 tbsp sesame oil or peanut oil (can use coconut oil or olive oil if you don’t have)

4 cups of veggies (broccoli, bell pepper, broccolini, bok choy etc…)
4 large eggs
optional toppings: green onion, crushed peanuts, cilantro, chili flakes etc..
Heat up water in a medium pot and cook rice noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile mix together all sauce ingredients and set aside.
Add sesame oil (or whatever oil you are using) to a large pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until transluscent, 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and choice of veggies and cook for an additional 5 minutes. If veggies are still a pit hard place a top on pan and allow to steam for a few minutes until cooked through.
Push veggies to side of pan and crack eggs directly into the pan. Stir to scramble and cook for 2 minutes or until cooked all the way through.
Combine egg with veggies and add rice noodles.
Top with sauce until fully coated. Cook in sauce for about 3 minutes over low heat or until noodles have absorbed most of the sauce.
Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
*Note: sometimes tamarind comes in a block of paste. If that’s the case use 1 tbsp of paste and mix it into 1/4 cup of hot water.
