  • 2 limes divided
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 teaspoons of chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger
  • Some olive oil
  • Minced garlic

  • ¼ cup minced cilantro
  • ¼ cup cashew halves
  • a red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 cups of snow peas
  • a large carrot
  • 4 oz of rice noodles

Boil the noodles and veggies in a pot of water for about 5 minutes. Make the cashew butter by putting 1 cup of cashews into a food processor with 4 tablespoons of water, 1/2 teaspoon sugar and a dash of kosher salt. Marinate the scallops with some of lime juice, 1 tablespoon of chili garlic sauce and a tablespoon of ginger until the noodles and veggies are done. Reserve about 3 cups of noodle water. Put the cashew butter, some more lime juice, honey, the rest of the chili garlic sauce and ginger into a bowl and stir until all combined. Once combined, add it into a pot with the cooked noodles and veggies. Add some of the reserved water until desired consistency. Cook the sea scallops in the olive oil in a different pan for about 3 minuets until browned on each side. Then add everything into a serving dish and garnish with a few cashew halves.

About allisonharf

Hey everyone, my name is Allison Harf and currently I am a junior at Chapman University majoring in Communication Studies. The theme to my blog is cooking healthy, well-balanced meals while living on your own. Everyone knows the first time they had to cook a meal for themselves they did not know what to make, well, that’s why I am writing this blog. Ever since I was a child, I always helped my mother make dinner. Now, being an athlete in college I realize that a healthy and well-balanced meal is extremely necessary for everyone and every lifestyle. I plan on alternating each week between chicken, beef, fish and a vegetarian dish. For each meal I make, I plan on adding all of the necessary nutritional facts so you guys can see the nutritional value. So check out on my blog weekly to discover a new healthy meal to try. Please let me know if you guys have any suggestions or comments so that I can make my blog and my meals more entertaining and exciting for you!

    This looks very tasty Allison! I don’t cook too often because I don’t really know how to, but now that I have an apartment, I definitely need to utilize my stove more often. Keep posting tasty, healthy things I can attempt to cook!

  2. I absolutely love food, so reading this blog is really enjoyable for me! I think maybe you should try to do a post where you give yourself a budget, and go out and by groceries and not go over your budget! Good food is great but cheap food is better!
