batch cooked lunch recipe - edamame, spinach & peanut noodles

This is adapted from a @deliciouslyella recipe. An easy batch cooked lunch to make in advance so you can spend more time enjoying your lunch break.


Edamame beans are a great staple to have in the freezer. Especially for any vegetarians or plant-based eaters as they are a good protein source. I often add them to salads, stir-fries and pasta dishes to bulk it up.

1/2 bag of spinach

1 tbsp peanut butter

Recipe


Cook the noodles accordingly to the instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.


Put the edamame beans in a small bowl and pour over some hot water to defrost them.


In a small bowl make the dressing by combining the peanut butter, ACV, tamari, sesame oil and honey. Add some water to loosen it.


Add the noodles to a large bowl with spinach, pepper, and edamame beans. Pour over the dressing and mix well.


Sprinkle over the sesame seeds when ready to eat.
