As so many people are avoiding wheat and gluten, Trader Joe’s is coming out with noodles made from interesting things. These little tubes are made with pink lentils. Not as tasty as pasta, but very pretty with the green sat choi from the new Asian Market that recently opened at the corner of Piner and Marlow. On Thursdays, I can get fresh salmon at an attractive price, so I put the three together for a healthy meal.
Kaylane Wong turned me on to the “greens” and Hang Ah which are delicious, especially with fish, so I think I found the ingredients at the Asian market. The trick with sat choi is to blanch it first to reduce bitterness, then just cook as kale or spinach. A splash of rice vinegar at the end adds zest.
