Pea-Nutty Soba Noodles


Looking for some simple comfort food? Well, these pea-nutty soba noodles are so satisfying and packed with fiber-rich protein. Oh yeah, and it came together in under 20 minutes!


When I was in college, this was the kind of stuff I dreamed of. And not so long ago, I found a packaged version at Trader Joe’s called something like Thai Style Pasta Salad and it was my go to for longer than I'd like to admit. With this updated version, I'll never go back. Free of refined sugar, gluten, and GMO ingredients, it came together quickly with almost all ingredients I had on hand or in my pantry. Perfect for a hungry college student or just a busy mom looking for a little comfort.


Stay safe out there everyone! More healing recipes to follow…Yours, Leslie
