Veggie Satay Noodles
Serves: 2 (each serving contains approximately 550 kcal)
(Approx kcal per serving)
100g dried wholewheat noodles
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 green pepper
handful natural skinned peanuts (10g)
1 tablespoon rapeseed oil (15g)
1 teaspoon natural peanut butter (5g) (preferably crunchy with no added sugar & salt – check the label the sugar should be no more than 5g per 100g)
160g tin coconut milk
2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce (30g)
handful fresh coriander leaves
Bring a pan of water to the boil over a medium heat. Add the noodles and cook for 4-5 minutes until almost tender. Drain in a colander.
Cut the green, red and yellow pepper in half. Remove and discard the seeds, then thinly slice. Trim and thinly slice the scallions.
Heat a wok or large frying pan over a medium to high heat. Dry roast the peanuts, tossing regularly until evenly coloured. Tip on to the chopping board and once they have cooled down, roughly chop.
Add the rapeseed oil to the wok, then add the peppers and stir-fry for a few minutes until the peppers begin to pick up a bit of colour. Tip in the scallions and stir-fry for another minute. Add the peanut butter, coconut milk and soy sauce. Mix everything together and allow to bubble over a high heat until the sauce is thickened.
Add the drained noodles and mix again until evenly combined and heated through. Divide the veggie satay noodles into bowls and scatter the toasted peanuts on top with the coriander to serve to serve.
