If you are in search for a good vegan lunch/dinner idea you should try this noodles recipe. Prep takes about 15 minutes and cook time is 20 minutes!

Ingredients (for 2 servings):

  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked noodles of choice (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 cup zucchini, diced
  • 1 small carrot, diced
  • 3/4 cup yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup broccoli, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup white wine (low sodium vegetable broth is also an option)
  • 1/2 tsp each ground thyme, oregano, coriander, and smoked paprika

Directions:

  1. Cook the noodles on the stove according to package directions until al dente.
  2. Mist a skillet with olive oil or coconut oil spray.
  3. Sautee the garlic for 1 minute on medium heat, then add the zucchini, carrot, onion, broccoli and red pepper. Stir often for 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent.
  4. Turn heat down to low. Add the white wine/vegetable broth, thyme, oregano, coriander and smoked paprika. Stir well, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
