A Good-for-You Noodle Bowl You'll Crave
Freston considers this Asian-inspired dish to be "noodle nirvana." With its irresistible combination of creamy, subtle sweetness and hint of spice, it's easy to see why. The recipe, which comes from vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli, calls for brown-rice noodles, which are gluten-free and have a mild flavor that makes them an ideal match for the piquant sauce. Dressed in a rich mix of coconut milk, maple syrup, soy sauce, peanut butter, chili-garlic sauce, ginger, lime juice and sesame oil, they're over-the-top good. To add even more nutrition, you toss in shredded carrots, chopped peanuts and a good amount of fresh cilantro.
