Apple "Pad Thai"

Not too authentic, but you'll like it anyway.

8 oz rice noodles, ¼" width
½ cup teriyaki sauce (I used SoyVay Island Teriyaki. It has pineapple juice!)
½ cup apple juice
juice of one lime
1 Tbsp tomato paste
2 Tbsp cooking oil
2 apples, finely diced
1 carrot, thinly sliced
2 shallots (about 1.5 inches diameter), finely diced
½-1 cup cilantro, finely chopped

Heat water in a saucepan over high heat. Once boiling, add the rice noodles, and turn down to low. Stir, and simmer for 5 minutes or until noodles are cooked through. Drain and set aside.

Combine the teriyaki sauce, apple juice, lime juice, and tomato paste in a small bowl and mix to combine.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and add apples. Let brown, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften. Add carrots and onion, and sautée until everything is a little browned and cooked through.

Add the noodles to the pan, and add the sauce mixture immediately after. Stir to coat and loosen noodles; simmer at medium heat for 5 minutes. In the last minute, add chopped cilantro. Serve!
