Ingredients

  • 7 oz rice noodles
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2.5 cups mushrooms
  • 2 medium bell peppers
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and chopped into matchsticks
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • salt, to taste
  • 2 cups fresh spinach

For the sauce

  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder

Instructions

  • To make the sauce, stir together the coconut milk, almond butter, maple syrup and arrowroot powder. Set aside. Soak or boil noodles according to instructions on packaging. 
  • Meanwhile, add the garlic and onion to a non-stick frying pan with 1-2 tbsp water. Stir on a medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Season with cumin and paprika, then add the mushrooms and stir for a further 2-3 minutes, until almost cooked through. 
  • Add the bell peppers and carrots to the frying pan, and stir for 2 minutes, ensuring that they still have a little bit of crunch. Then, lower the heat and add the noodles, green peas and sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir for a further 2 minutes to combine with the vegetables and allow the sauce to thicken. 
  • At the last minute, add the spinach and cook until wilted down. Serve immediately with a garnish of your choice.
