This Edamame Noodle Bowl with Peanut Sauce is sure to be your new favourite vegetarian weeknight meal. Flavourful, filling and plant-based! What more could you ask for?
This recipe has been adapted from a recipe shared on Instagram by the wonderful, plant-based food blogger, Deliciously Ella. I came across this recipe as I was planning my upcoming meals for the week and I couldn’t wait to try it. Although we try to include at least one vegetarian or vegan dinner each week, my boyfriend, Matt, isn’t always convinced by them. This recipe was different. As soon as he said this is one of his top 5 favourite recipes we make, I knew it had to be on the blog.
Including vegetarian or vegan meals into your routine has so many benefits for your health and the health of the planet. That being said, I do notice that quite a few plant-based recipes can be low in protein, unless you want to eat large portions of one particular bean. For this reason, I try to add extra protein through additional pulses, in the dressing or in toppings, like nuts or seeds, for example.
In this recipe, not only is there protein from edamame beans, but also in the added chickpeas or lentils. Bonus: these ingredients also provide an excellent source of fibre!
We can’t forget about flavour! Here is what you need for the peanut sauce:
The other wonderful this about this recipe is how versatile it is. Here are some tips and substitutions you could make if so inclined:
There are so many ways you can make this recipe your own. Depending on your preferences, you may end up creating your own variation like I have here. However you mix it, I hope it leaves you satisfied and happy!
