Thai stir-fried noodles. Probably good for other types besides A's, or at least easily modified.

Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (7 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (4 beneficials)
  • Type O (3 beneficials)
  • Type O Non Secretor (4 beneficials)

  • Entree

  • 2 Tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2-3 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 pkg flat rice noodles
  • 2-3 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 cup green onions cut into 1' pieces
  • Approx. 8-12 oz. pre-cooked chicken or tofu, depending on your blood type & tastes (original recipe has shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts (only for type A, AB?)
  • 1-2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • optional dried red chili peppers, if you are not type A

How to make it:
  1. In advance, cook the chicken or tofu, wash and chop green onions, wash/drain sprouts, lightly beat the egg with a fork, and begin boiling the water for the noodles in a large pan.
  2. Combine fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, paprika, cumin, and ginger in a small bowl.
  3. When the water in the pan is boiling and you are completely ready to begin, add the noodles (note: rice noodles overcook very easily).
  4. Place the olive oil, garlic and optional red peppers in a wok on a burner over medium-high to high heat.
  5. When the oil is very hot, add the sauce.
  6. Quickly drain the noodles and add them to the wok.
  7. Stir with a wooden rice paddle or other wooden utensil to coat the noodles with sauce, then push them to the side of the wok and add the egg.
  8. Let the egg cook up, then scrape and mix in with the noodles.
  9. Now mix in the chicken/tofu, green onions, and sprouts and let heat up briefly.
  10. Save a few bean sprouts for garnish, and garnish with peanuts (optional).
