Quick Veggie Noodles

This simple veggie noodle dish is a perfect lighter meal. If you want to add a bit more bulk, feel free to add more veggies, tofu cubes, chopped peanuts or cashews.

Ingredients
For the sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon(s) tahini
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) white miso paste
  • 1 lime juiced
For the rest:
  • 7 oz rice noodles
  • 1/2 tablespoon(s) sesame oil
  • 1 large carrots spiralized or grated
  • 1 zucchini spiralized or grated
  • 1 red pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh or frozen peas frozen
  • 1 tablespoon(s) sesame seeds
  • 1 handful(s) fresh cilantro chopped (optional)
Instructions
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together all of the sauce ingredients.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles according to the package instructions
  • Heat 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil in a large skillet or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add in the carrot, zucchini and green peas, and cook for 3-4 minutes until the veggies have softened slightly. Add the prepared noodles and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Finally, add in the sauce and cook for a final 2-3 minutes until warmed through. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro.
Notes
Soy-Free: To keep this recipe soy-free, swap out the miso for chickpea miso! 
Spiralizer: A spiralizer is a fun tool that turns veggies into long noodle shapes. If you do not have a spiralizer, no worries,  just grate the veggies using the large hole side on a box cheese grater.
Oil-free: to make oil-free omit the sesame oil in the marinate. When frying the veggies, omit the sesame oil and instead do awater or broth sauté. Add extra sesame seeds to add more flavour.
