Gluten-free noodles with baked apple and cinnamon

March 5, 2012

Long time no see, blogging world! My apologies, but for the past week and a half I was struck down with some sort of… fever/flu/cough/ear infection thing and was in no state to blog. I was, however, in a state to throw together food and take fever-maddened pictures, so let’s talk about that!

First on the roster: noodles with stuff in ’em! An alternate, slightly more appetizing name would probably run along the lines of “Gluten-free noodles with baked apple and cinnamon”. I eat super-healthy when I’m sick, clearly.

Alright, this one is fairly simple, and easy to throw together when you feel like crawling into a corner and just quietly ceasing to exist, possibly along with some pillows and heavy blankets. To make enough for one person, you will need:

1 cup of gluten-free noodles
Several lumps (or, like, a tablespoon) of brown sugar/sweetener of your choice
Three dashes of cinnamon
A dash (or, like, maybe 1/5 cup) of soy milk (or milk of your choice)
1 McIntosh apple

This recipe is easy to adjust to make more or less, depending on your appetite at the time!

First, boil up the noodles until soft or al dente (whatever that means). While you’re doing this, cut the apple into quarters, core it, put it on pan and stick it in the toaster oven for about ten minutes. If you lack a toaster oven, a regular oven works about the same on 350.

Drain the noodles (and remember that most gf noodles need to be rinsed after being drained), then put them into a serving bowl. Add the sugar and cinnamon and mix them around a bit. Take the apple and carefully cut it into smaller chunks (it should be soft, but hot!), then add it to the mix. Add your splash of soy milk and voila, you have made a delicious, probably-not-very-healthy dish to get you through the worst of that fever. The baked apple is soft, the noodles are easy to digest, and the cinnamon and sugar are a nice taste break from cough syrup and throat lozenges.

I took about seven million pictures of the same thing and only one of them turned out remotely looking like food. Do not operate cameras while feverish, friends.

Note: I added the soy milk solely because I did not have butter. You can use a bit of butter or margarine if you have it instead of milk and it will probably work even better!

    Hey!

    Tonight I made red quinoa with green apple, cinnamon, and pecans. It was SO yummy. Filling without being heavy on the stomach.

    Had to share 🙂
