Peanut Noodles with Vegetables

Jan 08, 2021 by


This is a very regular dinner in our home not only because it’s so delicious (who doesn’t love nutty noodles?!), but because it’s easy to make, too. Besides the fresh veggies (onion, broccoli, carrots and peppers), hopefully you already have all the other ingredients in your pantry or fridge. Also, the sauce is just three ingredients that require no prep. You can’t mess this recipe up! Even if you overcook the veggies, they are still delicious coated with the sauce.

If you have a nut allergy, try using tahini instead of peanut butter for the sauce. It’ll still be delicious!

This recipe serves two large eaters.
