Peanut Noodles (Vegetarian)

Pin It Now!

We all know we should have lots of fruits and vegetables in our daily meals. These nutrient rich foods may lower risk for certain health conditions such as obesity and heart disease. Eating any vegetables is good but do you know eating raw vegetables has some additional advantages over cooked vegetables?


Heating food destroys its nutrients and natural enzymes. Having vegetables raw can preserve the nutrients which boost digestion and fight chronic disease. You will get its nutritional perks. Most of the vegetables will be high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals.


Many raw foods are low in calories, fat and sodium and high in fiber. Having raw foods diet work for weight loss too.


This peanut noodles are easy to prepare and go well with raw vegetables. If possible try to stick to real peanuts instead of peanut butter and you will taste the difference. It is kind of nutty, sweet and sour flavors. Since I’m serving to kids I used sweet chili sauce. Feel free to replace with hot sauce if you like. Add your choice of vegetables , or even some protein like tofu or chicken. Pay attention do not over-soften the noodles as it need to remain firm in order to mix well with all the veggies and peanut sauce.
