There is undoubtedly a vegan noodle meal that would suit your mood, no matter what it may be. Everyone and every occasion can find something to eat in soups, stir-fries, or drown in the sauce! So, let's try some veggie noodles recipes.

Tofu Pad See Ew

1. Tofu Pad See Ew

This dish perfectly represents hearty, sticky, and wonderful Thai comfort food. The wider the rice noodles, the better. Use the widest ones you can find.

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes | Servings: 3

Ingredients For The Tofu Pad See Ew

  • Dried rice noodles: 6 oz
  • Chinese broccoli: 5 stalks
  • Store-bought smoked or baked tofu: 6 oz
  • Avocado or peanut oil: ¼ cup
  • Garlic: 3 cloves

Ingredients For The Sauce

  • Soy sauce or tamari: ¼ cup
  • Dark soy sauce: ¼ cup
  • Agave nectar: 1 tablespoon
  • Lime juice: 1 tablespoon
  • White pepper: 1 teaspoon
  • Powdered seaweed: 1 teaspoon
  • Dark soy sauce: 1 tablespoon

Method

  1. To boil, add 8 cups of water. Add the rice noodles after bringing them to a boil and turning off the heat. 5 to 7 minutes of soaking time should be sufficient to make the pasta tender but still al dente. To keep from sticking, stir about once per minute.
  2. Cut the broccoli into bite-size pieces that are 2 inches long. Discard the stalks' bottom-most stiff stems. Make thin slices of tofu.
  3. Drain the noodles and rinse them with cold water after they are finished. So they won't cling together, immediately transfer the noodles to a bowl and toss them with 1 tablespoon of oil.
  4. Use high heat with a sizable, hefty pan.
  5. Cut the garlic cloves very thin. Combine the agave, lime juice, seaweed, light and dark soy sauces, white pepper, and salt in a bowl.
  6. Oil the pan with 1 tbsp. To uniformly cover the surface, tilt the pan. Before putting the tofu in the skillet, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of black soy sauce over it.
  7. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until browned. Add the broccoli and another tablespoon of oil to the pan. Stir-fry the broccoli for 30 seconds or until it, starts to wilt and become fragrant. To prevent the garlic from burning, stir regularly.
  8. Spread out the noodles equally in the pan. The last tablespoon of oil should be added to the noodles and stirred. Pour the sauce over the noodles and give them a couple of stirs to coat them all. Cook for another 5 minutes or until noodles starts to caramelize.
  9. Gently scrape the pan's bottom as you stir to prevent sticking and ensure that the noodles cook evenly. Enjoy! Distribute the noodles among serving bowls.

Artichoke Pesto Zucchini Noodles

2. Artichoke Pesto Zucchini Noodles

This recipe is straightforward, convenient, and savoury and can serve as an appetizer (entrée) or the main course. Naturally, you could prepare the same recipe with pasta, but you should give this healthier variation a shot. It's a fantastic method to encourage your kids to eat more vegetables. Good appetite!

They'll stay fresh for at least 4 days.)
  2. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a sauce saucepan on the stove. Add the pesto sauce in tablespoonfuls, about one tablespoon per serving. Mix it thoroughly until heated evenly. Remove the heat.
  3. Depending on your number, microwave the zucchini noodles medium-high for 30 seconds to just under a minute.
  4. To keep them on the crisp side, do not overheat them. Add the hot pesto sauce and cover everything thoroughly.

3. Miso Ramen Bowl With Tellicherry Black Pepper Tofu

What should you eat if you yearn for something rich and umami-filled? Make this miso ramen bowl that's vegan! Miso, dried shiitake mushrooms, and a tiny bit of soy milk work well together. It also has great heat from the Tellicherry black pepper tofu. This vegan ramen comes with sautéed shimeij mushrooms and bok choy that has been miso-glazed, leaving you wanting more before you've even finished the final noodle.

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes | Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • Garlic: 4 cloves, crushed
  • Onion: 2 medium, roughly chopped
  • Chillies: 2 small, finely chopped
  • Dried shiitakes: 3 oz, chopped
  • Vegetable broth: 4 cups
  • White miso paste: 2 tablespoons
  • Unsweetened soy milk: ½ cup
  • Toasted sesame oil.
  • Soy sauce or tamari to taste
  • Tellicherry pepper: freshly ground to taste

Ingredients For The Tofu Marinade

  • Firm tofu: 7 oz, cubed
  • Chillies: 2, finely chopped
  • Garlic: 2 cloves, finely chopped
  • Sweet soy sauce: 1 tablespoon
  • Tamari: 2 tablespoon
  • Sugar: 1 teaspoon
  • Ginger: 1 thumb-sized piece, finely chopped
  • Generous amount of Tellicherry pepper
  • Spring onions, finely chopped

Ingredients For The Bowl

  • Ramen noodles: 5.3 oz

Ingredients For The Toppings (Optional)

  • Shimeji mushrooms: 3.5 oz
  • Spring onions
  • Bok choy: 1 cup, rubbed with miso paste and lightly sautéed.
  • Green chilli: 1 sliced
  • Julienned carrots (optional).

After combining all the marinade ingredients, prepare the tofu and let it sit in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. The tofu cubes are then placed on a baking pan and roasted for 20 minutes at 374°F, rotating them halfway through.
  4. Prepare the ramen noodles as directed on the package (do not use the flavouring).
  5. To serve, put the noodles in a bowl, pour the broth over them, and top with the tofu, shimeji mushrooms, spring onions, and sautéed bok choy (and the carrots and the nori squares).

Fettuccine With Vegan Champagne Alfredo

4. Fettuccine With Vegan Champagne Alfredo

This vegan version has the same creaminess, garlic flavour, richness, and cheese flavour as the animal-based original but is also bubblier.

Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Total time: 30 minutes | Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • Fettucine: 2 cups
  • Plant-based milk: 3 cups
  • Lemon juice: 2 tablespoons
  • Garlic: 3-6 cloves
  • Arrowroot flour: 2-4 tablespoons
  • Nutritional yeast: ¼ cup
  • Sparkling wine: ½ cup
  • Cashew cream or vegan cream cheese: ½ cup
  • Parsley to garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. For your pasta, start a big pot of salted water to boil.
  2. Lemon juice should be added to plant-based milk, then set aside. The lemon slightly curdles the milk, thickening it to resemble buttermilk.
  3. Place the garlic cloves, unpeeled, in a frying pan with a tablespoon of oil if you want to roast part of it. Cook the garlic until it is tender, for around 7-8 minutes on each side. When you press the clove, you want the interior to come out like toothpaste.
  4. Once roasted, take the garlic out of the pan and sauté the minced garlic for 2 minutes, until fragrant but not browned.
  5. Add 2 tablespoons of arrowroot flour and incorporate it by whisking.
  6. However, no one will notice if there are a few lumps after a few pulses in the blender if you do have some. The addition of the roasted garlic is almost simpler this way as well.
  7. If you're not using a blender, stir that roasted garlic too!
  8. Additionally, add nutritional yeast, cashew cream, and vegan cheese if used. Is your arm still aching? SEEK TO WHISK.
  9. Finally, include your bubbly. Likewise, if your arm has been working hard, take a sip for yourself.
  10. To taste, add salt and pepper to the food.
  11. Prepare your spaghetti, drain it, and then top it with the lovely sauce.
  12. Prepare to amaze your guests (and yourself!) by garnishing with parsley.
  13. Enjoy!

Vegetable Noodles Can Be Healthier Than Traditional Varieties

Vegetable Noodles Can Be Healthier Than Traditional Varieties

Small adjustments can have a major impact as people continue to search for methods to increase the nutritional content of their favorite foods.

This is particularly true for consumers who may be trying to find a discreet way to sneak a few vegetables into their children's diets.

It may be healthier to substitute specially prepared veggies for traditional pasta, but substituting kale for lasagna noodles can raise some eyebrows at the dinner table.

Thankfully, there are methods to make your pasta more nutrient-dense without switching out your lasagna noodles for eggplant slices.

To improve the nutritional value and consumer attractiveness of your pasta selections, consider using veggie pasta with vegetables in powder form. You can include ‘hidden vegetables' in your products by incorporating vegetable powder into your pasta.

Confirmed carnivores may be suspicious of spinach and zucchini noodles, especially if you bake the vegetables right into the pasta noodles.

In that case, you can add up to a full serving of vegetables for every 3.5 ounces of pasta without significantly altering the flavour or appearance of the dish.
