Healthy Quinoa Noodle Bowl

I generally haven’t been posting recipes that can be categorized as healthy or quick. Desserts always excite me more and I like to talk about them more. This recipe though is a life saver if you don’t have a lot of time on hands and are not inclined to eat carbs either. I used Quinoa Noodles to make this a healthier version but by all means use rice noodles or egg noodles if you happen to have those on hand.

Ingredients:

Quinoa Noodles 1 package about 8 ozs

Capsicum Red or Yellow preferably 1 cut in thin long slices

Onion 1/2 cut in thin long slices

Zucchini yellow or green 1 1/2 cut in thin long slices

Cilantro a handful for garnish

Lemon slices

For the Sauce:

Soy Butter 1/3 cup

Extra Virgin Olive oil 1/4 cup

Tahini 2 Tbsp

Soy Sauce  3 Tbsp per taste

Honey 2 Tbsp

Cumin Powder 1/2 Tsp

Cayenne Pepper 1/2 Tsp (optional)

Salt

Lemon Juice 2 Tbsp but adjust according to taste

Directions:

Add all the ingredients for the sauce in a mixing bowl and whisk firmly until thoroughly mixed. Alternatively, run it through the blender.

In a large pan, add a splash of oil if needed and add all the veggies and saute at high temperature for about 3 minutes. Add the sauce and mix until all veggies are thoroughly coated.

Prepare Noodles as per package instructions. Add the noodles to the prepared vegetable and sauce mixture and mix well. Serve immediately.

You can change up the vegetables and use whatever you have on hand.

Enjoy!!
