Sweet Sesame Garlic Noodles - 20 minutes

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Although I've been told I'm a great cook, I rarely cook something that is amazingly good and takes under 30 minutes to make, so don't pass this one by! It's a diamond in the ruff.

What we loved about this dish is that it was such a life saver on a day that we simply did not have 1 hour to be in the kitchen cooking. Also, with Get being a gym rat as of late, it gave him the protein he needed to repair his muscles after a tough workout. The chick pea noodles gave him 13 g, the sesame seeds were about 2 g, and the other veggies all add up to a total of 20 g of protein. It was also really filling and we both agreed that it would be pleasing to a non-vegans palette. So, feel free to share this one with your carnivore friends!
