Peanut Sauce Noodle Bowl

I love experimenting with different types of cuisine. The flavors in Asian cuisine have a combination of sweet and spicy, and the best thing about most of their food is they are packed with vegetables and are super healthy.

Asian Noodle Bowl

I recently made a 10 minute meal that was exceptional! This noodle bowl is bursting with flavor and vibrant colors from fresh cucumber, carrots and sweet peppers. It is a quick weeknight fix, when you don’t have time to prepare a lengthy meal. But…just because it’s quick and easy doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice nutrition and flavor. This meal is loaded with everything you need to satisfy your hunger, and you craving for a nutritious dinner…and there might even be leftovers for lunch!

    I wonder how this would be with cashew butter? We can’t have peanut butter in the house, but this looks like it would really hit the spot for a lunch. Thanks for sharing.
