Red rice noodles: a review, and life contemplation

When my life gets complicated, my recipes tend to get simpler— steamed veggies, tofu and pasta have been go-to items recently. Which is likely why so many of my posts have been product reviews— my creative energies feel a little spent right now. My last semester of grad school at Eastern Michigan has turned into a mess of paperwork and delays.

And as rice noodles are one of my go-to comfort foods, I’ve been trying different kinds of pasta lately, which led me to red rice noodles. This company’s instant noodley soups are one of my guilty pleasures. And these noodles have a wonderful, firm texture, and their color is just so intriguing. I mean, red rice noodles! They look so amazing next to green vegetables.

With these noodles, so far I have eaten them plain, used them with veggie stock and veggies in soup, and added them to salads. They’re good warm or cold, which is a good quality for gluten-free noodles.

And honestly: having simple things to focus on has been a relief. I’m on my last semester at Eastern Michigan, but the only thing left is my student teaching. Which has been delayed, and delayed… paperwork mix-ups from universities.

I’m hoping my grad school situation will be resolved soon— but until then, a lot of my meals may involve noodles.red noodlesEDIT

  1. Yay, red rice noodles. Are they made from red rice, or is some red veggie powder added to white rice? Who knows. Anyways, keep it up with school, it will get better! Because I think everyone who graduates personally knows the pain of bureaucracy, and especially inefficient university bureaucracy!

    • They’re made from both red rice and white, and a bit of tapioca starch. Thanks for the encouraging words about school— I know it will improve, just the waiting can be tedious!

      • Oh, that’s an adventure. I have to say, I love red rice and black rice, and it’s nice to see something besides plain old white. 🙂 I know it’s tedious, I’m going through the process myself right now!

      • I’ve been looking beyond plain white rice noodles, and have been pleasantly surprised by brown and red rice noodles. Good luck with school, I know how time consuming it can be!
