You do need to boil the brown rice noodles and I suggest that you do that early in the morning or the night before to keep your kitchen cool. The roll wrappers just get dipped in warm water before you assemble it all, so you don’t need to do those ahead.
Debbie owns a vegan, allergy-free, gluten-free and sugar-free bakery in Los Angeles called Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes. All of her recipes are free of the top 8 food allergens, in addition to gluten-free, sesame-free, and refined sugar. Her recipes in this book are also refined oil-free as well – even her baked goods.
In her first book, Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats, all her recipes were sweet ones and in this one she has mostly savory with a few sweets thrown in for good measure.
The chapters include what you need equipment-wise in your kitchen, staples recipes, morning munchies, soup is good food, meals in muffin tins and ramekins, pizza pasta rice & noodles, the main attraction, the side show, the bread basket, and a feast of sweets. I can’t wait to try some of the ramekin recipes in my air fryer!
