DIRECTIONS

Roasted Veggies:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  3. Chop sweet potato, broccoli, and onion. Add veggies to a mixing bowl, drizzle 2 tsp sesame oil and juice of one lime wedge. Toss until all veggies are covered.
  4. On a baking sheet, spread vegetables out evenly and let them roast for 20-35 min (you can make the sauce and noodles while these are cooking). Check them at 15 min and mix them up a bit to cook evenly.
  5. Once the veggies are tender and golden-brown, remove from oven and set aside.

Moringa Peanut Sauce:

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine peanut butter, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, chili oil, moringa, and soy sauce. Heat over medium low, whisking to incorporate.
  2. Add the juice of 1-3 lime wedges. You may need to up to ¼ cup of water to achieve a runnier consistency.
  3. Once the ingredients are combined, take off heat (or reduce to lowest setting) and cover.

Noodles:

  1. Following the instructions on the package, cook udon noodles until tender and drain.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, toss cooked noodles in 1-2 tsp sesame oil to keep them from sticking.

Putting it all together:

  1. If necessary, heat up peanut sauce so it’s a little runny. In a large bowl, toss noodles in peanut sauce until they are evenly coated.
  2. Dish noodles into bowls and be sure to leave room for the veggies
  3. Add roasted vegetables and purple cabbage. Top with toasted sesame seeds and fresh greens if desired.
