Last night's dinner was an example of Plan B:
Quinoa spaghetti noodles with spicy ginger peanut sauce
Pasta, cooked according to package directions, add in fresh broccoli and frozen edamame about 1/2 way through. Drain, reserving a ladle full of the water from the pot, return the pasta and veggies to the pot and set aside. (It took longer last night to get the water to boil than it did to cook this meal!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon Sriracha (or more if you like it hot, Paulo declared that the sauce was not spicy enough so next time, more sauce!)
1" of ginger grated
Mix those three things together.
To a bowl add:
1 cup of natural peanut butter
The spicy ginger sauce
The reserved water
Whisk well to blend. Add sauce to the noodles and veggies and toss well to coat. I rounded out the meal with quinoa flour dusted tilapia fillets that I pan fried to get a little crispy coating to them. The noodles themselves are hearty enough to be a main dish for a meatless night, you could easily serve with a side salad with an Asian style dressing and be done. It was quick and easy and totally not what I had planned for dinner last night.
