Meatless Meals Week

My wife threw down the gauntlet the other day.  Well, maybe that is a bit dramatic. She mentioned we were eating too much meat and asked me to add some vegetarian meals to the rotation.  I decided to then make that a challenge and see if I can make a week’s worth of meatless entrees.

Spicy Peanut Noodles Monday was an easy one, as I had recently seen a recipe for Spicy Peanut Noodles from the Food & Wine website I wanted to try.  The peanut sauce is made from peanut butter blended with sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper.  I doubled the crushed pepper since we like dishes on the hot and spicy side, which was a good call.  This was then paired with a side of Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar.

 

Kathy was surprised by how tasty the noodles were.  Despite growing up in an Italian family in Rochester she isn’t a huge pasta fan (other than with her mom’s sauce), but found the flavors in this dish worked very well together.  I liked the fact that it was easy to put together, which is always a big plus in my book.

Thumbs up for day one of Meatless Meals Week.  Now on to find something for tomorrow.  Suggestions anyone?
