I love noodles! But most asian food has meat hidden in it.  Even if it seems vegetarian, it is usually chalk full of fish sauce and oyster sauce which are obviously not vegetarian.  So don’t take a chance on ordering out, cook in!  These are my veggie friendly version of asian noodles.


Asian Noodles

What you’ll need:


1/2 lb. angel hair pasta

4 Tbsp. Earth Balance butter substitute (or butter)

4 large cloves of garlic, chopped

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

3 Tbsp. soy sauce

Add in’s:

1/4 cup scallions, sliced

1 tsp. sesame seeds, toasted

1/4 cup nuts, toasted (I like cashews, almonds or peanuts)

1 carrot, sliced

1 crown of broccoli

What you’ll do:

Boil a large pot of water, add salt and the pasta.

While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce.  Melt the butter and garlic in a pot on low for about 3 minutes.  Add the “add in’s” and brown sugar and soy sauce.  Cook until the veggies are tender.

When the pasta is al dente, strain and stir the noodles in with the sauce.  Lastly, stir in the sesame seeds and nuts.

Easy Peasy!  You will love these and never order in again!
