Thai Peanut Noodles make for a quick and easy meal. Cook the noodles, saute the veggies, mix it all together and you have dinner! If you want to add protein, you can easily do so as well. While this is a little “expensive” Points-wise, you can easily lighten it up by substituting half of the noodles for Zoodles. This is already a veggie powerhouse with the broccoli slaw. Adding in Zoodles will just make it greener!
For the sauce, I buy pre-made sauce from Whole Foods. I have a variety of different peanut sauces I like but this store-bought kind is fast when time is short. Feel free to substitute in your favorite peanut sauce, the end result will still be amazing!
