My love of peanut butter and Thai flavors is not new to this blog, and I've made similar recipes before (vegetables + some other ingredient + peanut sauce). What makes this different is the addition of cold noodles and lots of edamame, which really help to make this a full dinner that is quite satisfying. Bonus? This meal is very quick to make. Start boiling water for your noodles and prep everything else while the water comes to a boil and the noodles cook. Then it's time to eat!
I found this recipe on a blog I just recently discovered, Oh My Veggies. It is run by a few different people but features all vegetarian recipes. It also has meal plans like I used to do! I've been enjoying looking at everything on that site so expect to see more recipes from that source in the future. This particular Thai noodle bowl recipe was originally from the Oh She Glows Cookbook. Oh She Glows is another blog that's been one of my favorites for a few years.
I will definitely be making this again during the warmer months. It would make a great lunch as well! Enjoy!
Thai Peanut Noodle and Veggie Bowl
Recipe: Thai Peanut Noodle and Veggie Bowl
- I couldn't find soba noodles, so I used whole wheat linguine instead.
- I doubled the amount of pasta (I used 8 ounces) to make larger dinner servings.
- I made 1.5 times the sauce, since I doubled the pasta. I recommend doing that if you also double the pasta and tend to like a lot of dressing on salads, otherwise it's probably not necessary.
- Baked tofu or chicken would make a great addition or substitute for some of the edamame.
