Happy meatless Monday!

For those who don’t normally leave out the land animal, today is a great day to give plants a chance. Or hell, at least switch it up!

Why not try this next time you’re feeling spicy? Wheat soba noodle stir fry with a spicy coconut sauce. Yup, that’ll get your motor running!

What you’ll need:

1 package of wheat soba noodles (Mike and I used 2/3 of the package)
Lots o’ veggies (we used 1 onion, 2 green onions, 9 baby carrots, 1 large head of broccoli, garlic, 1/2 zucchini, 1/2 squash)
1/2 cup of peanuts

Sesame oil
1 cup coconut milk
2 teaspoons chili paste
1-2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon real peanut butter
2 tablespoons amino acids (soy sauce)
2 tablespoons Apple cider vinegar

Dice garlic and onion (leave green onion for later) & throw in wok for 2-5 minutes. Dice carrots, throw in. Cook another 3-5 minutes. Mike helped with this and all the veggies were the same size! Gotta love a carpenter!

Cook the noodles – don’t over cook! Soba noodles get pastey quickly.

When the veggies are feeling a bit softer, throw in peanuts, zucchini, squash & broccoli. Cook another 5 minutes. Add green onions at the end.

Add all ingredients for the sauce and mix well (I mixed in an almost empty peanut butter jar, cause I’m ghetto).

Add cooked noodles to wok, toss with sauce (not all, save some to add after you scoop!)


Happy cooking

It all began 20+ years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other, moving to Colorado, starting another business together. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 20+ years later. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing to new countries, hiking, biking or skiing, touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to upgrading the house, or flipping and gutting an investment property, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
