Easy Meal Prep Recipe
This is a super quick, throw together in 20 minutes sort of recipe.
It can also be a great meal prep recipe. Prep all the veggies in advance, make a double – triple batch of the sauce, even pre cook the noodles!
Cold noodles are so good.
(I always toss cooked noodles with a bit of olive or coconut oil if they are to be leftovers.)
Most of the time, I’ll make the sauce and prep a week’s worth of veggies, and cook the pasta at the time of the meal. Or two batches of pasta, one for later.
One warm lunch, one cold!
Vegan Spicy Noodle Bowl
With a bit of prep work on one afternoon, I am able to enjoy super quick and easy lunches all week long.
This is what lunch has looked like this week. Spicy, peanutty noodle bowls. Veggie packed, comfort food pasta that I can sit on the couch and relax for however long it takes to eat, while catching up on Days of Our Lives. You might recall, my dad got me hooked. I still watch from time to time.
Sometimes, I add that egg component in the form of a tofu scramble..

Gluten Free Noodle Bowl
I love to use Rice Ramen in these bowls – so SO good.
Other times, I’ll use a gluten free spaghetti noodle, or another long noodle, like a fettuccine. It all works.
I’ll add whatever veggies I have in my fridge, which almost always includes broccoli and carrots. I throw them in raw, and once I stir them around in the hot pasta, they soften a bit. Still crunchy though, which is what I love.
If you are following this recipe and prefer a cooked veggie, you can toss them into the sauce while the pasta cooks. Or add roasted veggies – Mmm.
