We are always looking for quick, healthy meals to make that contain a good amount of carbohydrates to sustain our cycling hobby (addiction).
This noodle bowl is a combination of multiple recipes from over the years so don't hesitate to modify it to your taste! It is quick to make, we love it and hope you do to. Enjoy!
Noodles - we like buckwheat noodles, millet & brown rice ramen noodles, if time allows we spiralize sweet potatoes, bake them and use them for noodles!
Red Bell Pepper
Choice of Protein - Tempeh, chicken or fish
Salt and Pepper
Raw or roasted peanuts totally optional
1/3 to 1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/3 to 1/2 cup Almond Milk
1 1/2 tsp powdered Ginger (you can use fresh too!)
1 TBS Honey
3 TBS Soy Sauce - We use Coco Aminos
2 tsp Minced Garlic
2 TBS Siracha red pepper sauce!
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.
Chop up broccoli and slice red bell pepper, toss them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on cooking sheet and roast them in the oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes. We like our veggies a little crunchy so we roast them for about 15 minutes. Adjust your baking time for your preference.
While the veggies are roasting, cook your choice of noodles according to directions and set aside.
Prepare your choice of protein, we are using Tempeh tonight so it is simply toasted in a fry pan with a little olive oil.
Next, chop up a good handful of cilantro leaves and slice your green onions, set aside.
Prepare the sauce!
You can use 1/3 to 1/2 cup peanut butter and almond milk based on how thick you want the sauce and how much you like peanut butter! Yum, I love that peanut butter. Mix together the peanut butter, almond milk, ginger, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and siracha. Stir it really well until it is smooth. Take a taste! Add more siracha if you want it spicy, use less siracha if you want it mild.
Grab some large serving bowls, put in a portion of your cooked noodles, a portion of the roasted veggies, your protein, sprinkle with green onions and cilantro, and pour on the sauce! Sprinkle with some peanuts if you like! Delicious!
