Rainbow Peanut Noodles

These vegan rainbow peanut noodles make the easiest 25-minute dinner.

If you’re trying to eat healthier but don’t know where to start, this simple plant-based noodle dish is easy to make and tastes out-of-this-world amazing. This is one of those meals that makes delicious cold leftovers too!

Serves: 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 1 (12 oz) box thin whole wheat spaghetti noodles
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
  • 1½ cups sliced red bell pepper
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 cup carrot ribbons
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 batch Sesame Peanut Dressing (page 78 of Healthy Girl Kitchen)
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it. Cook the spaghetti noodles according to package instructions. When they are done, drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. While the noodles are cooking, microwave the frozen edamame for 3 minutes or until cooked.
  3. To a large serving bowl, add the noodles, edamame, bell pepper, cabbage, carrots, cilantro, spinach, and Sesame Peanut Dressing.
  4. Use tongs to toss, and sprinkle on sesame seeds

HealthyGirl Tip: Instead of microwaving the edamame, you can also pour boiling water over them and let them sit while you prep the other veggies, then drain them.
