Introduction

UPDATED: Added the ramen and the almonds. Still a low-fat winner. Note that you don't use the ramen seasoning packet, so the sodium count is incorrect. Thanks for all the awesome reviews!

I'm sure no one in China actually eats anything like this, but we thank them for their culinary contribution of the soy-sesame-ginger-chile combo, which makes anything delicious.

    3 Tbsp Reduced Sodium soy sauce
    6 Tbsp orange or preferably tangerine juice
    6 Tbsp cider or rice vinegar

Directions

Crumble the ramen in a 8x8 baking dish and combine with the almonds. Spray with cooking spray, toss, and put in the oven for about 10 minutes or till brown. You can slice veggies while this is happening.

Heat the Quorn in a large skillet or in the microwave till heated through, then add 1/4 cup of the dressing and toss to coat.

    Oops! I didn't make this recipe yet, bu in looking at the full nutritional breakdown, it appears that the calories for the ramen noodles and the almonds were not added in (which probably adds a lot). If you make this, be sure to calculate those in separately when tracking your calories. - 2/4/10

    Very good. I made this for a friend's retirement party, and she just loved it. If you have a problem with Rooster sauce, substitute Louisiana Hot Sauce; just as tasty, and veggie all the way. - 9/17/09
