This easy, vegetarian Hearts of Palm Noodle Peanut Stir Fry for one is made with a spicy peanut sauce, spinach, and egg – under 15 minutes and so good!
Hearts of Palm Noodle Peanut Stir Fry
I’m obsessed with these grain free, gluten free hearts of palm noodles that I used in place of pasta in this stir fry. They’re so healthy – you’re pretty much eating a big bowl of veggies! So much better than zoodles because they’re not watery and have a similar texture to noodles. I whipped up this vegetarian dish for lunch a few times already! Made with a spicy, gingery soy peanut sauce and added an egg for protein. With the egg, peanut butter and spinach the whole dish has about 17 grams of protein and comes together in under 15 minutes. For more easy stir-fries, try my Soba Noodle Veggie Stir Fry and Beef Negimaki Stir Fry.
I finally got my hands on some Palmini linguine affil link (noodles made out of hearts of palm), which I kept hearing about on social media. To be honest, I was hesitant to try them, but when I opened the package and tasted them, there weren’t scary at all. The Palmini basically tasted like hearts of palm, something I grew up eating. I gave the noodles a good rinse to neutralize the taste and made them into a stir fry. Next time I make them, I’m planning on making an Italian broccoli rabe and sausage version. If you’ve tried them let me know what you made!
