Roasted Vegetable Noodles

These noodles can be made as a quick mid week dinner, or an easy lunch on the go, which just needs 2 minutes in the microwave. As with any recipes on the blog, they’re easy to adapt to what you have in your cupboard. If your roast vegetables include mushrooms, you may want to omit the nuts, or you might want to switch the nuts to any seeds you have in, as the mushrooms may well be enough plant based protein for you.

You could also switch up the sauces based on your preferences and what you have in. I’ve made this with just soya sauce and also umami or miso paste mixed with water. Siracha would also be a great addition, but I am yet to find it in a non plastic container.

If you are participating in the weeklong Zero Waste food challenge, you should have already prepped and roasted your vegetables, so the assembly of this dish is even easier. This meal is prepared on the SUNDAY and eaten on the MONDAY. If you’re not following the challenge, follow the recipe from the start.
