Also, with a recipe like this, you can add or subtract the veggies depending on what you have in your fridge. I love making noodle dishes because it is a great way to pack in as many veggies as you can - with tons of flavour! We didn't have broccoli, so we added sliced purple cabbage, sliced napa cabbage (I definitely recommend this!! And a bonus health perk of supporting your liver), sliced red pepper. You could also add in tofu, edemame, sprouts, zucchini, white cabbage, other peppers, green onions...
What are you waiting for? Gluten free, vegan, delicious, and easy!!
- 4 ounces noodles of your choice - we used flat rice noodles
- Grapeseed oil
- 1 cup small broccoli florets
- ½ cup julienned carrots
- ⅓ cup smooth, natural peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 cup veggie broth
- ¼ cup tamari
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- Juice of ½ lime
- 2 teaspoons siracha sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 large garlic clove, minced or grated
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon or so chopped cilantro
- ⅓ cup roasted, salted peanuts, roughly chopped
- Start the water to cook the noodles – follow package directions, omitting salt, and using a tablespoon of soy sauce in the cooking water instead.
- Heat a tablespoon or so of grapeseed oil in a large sauté pan, and add the broccoli, carrots, or other veggies. Stir fry for about minutes until tender crisp.
- Put the peanut butter and honey in a small bowl.
- Heat the veggie broth almost to boiling, and pour 1/2 cup over the peanut butter and honey and stir until smooth and blended. This may take a minute, but it will come together.
- Once it does, add the tamari vinegar, lime juice, siracha, sesame oil, ginger and garlic, and stir together. Set aside.
- When the noodles are done, add them to the pan with the broccoli and carrots, and combine.
- Pour the sauce over the top, along with the sesame seeds, cilantro and about half of the peanuts.
- Stir everything together gently, and if you need to, add a bit more of the warmed broth, until you have a pleasing consistency. You want the sauce to cling, but it should not be at all gummy or sticky.
- Serve with the additional peanuts sprinkled over each serving.
