This recipe has been a stable quick and easy go-to in my life since I first created it during my student days.

Out of that, I came up with this apples and onions noodle recipe, because cooking noodles and rice were about as far as my cooking abilities stretched.

Even a few simple ingredients can make a simple meal amazing when the flavours combine.

Meal prep friendly vegan noodle recipe

Yes, you read that right. This noodle recipe is great for meal prepping as it can keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days no problem, and it’s freezer friendly. 

I like to make a big double or even triple batch of these noodles and freeze the leftovers in ready-to-heat containers for later. It makes it easy to have a healthy and nutritious meal when you have a busy day and are running low on time.

Gluten-free noodles

If you are looking for a gluten-free option, there’s several alternatives. The first one is to simply replace the regular noodles with rice noodles or another type of gluten-free noodle. Just be sure to check the ingredients list on the packaging in the grocery store to make sure the noodles you buy are actually gluten-free. 

Another easy option is to use zucchini or squash as the noodles. It not only tastes amazing and is completely gluten-free, it also makes the dish extra low in calories. 

Low calorie vegan noodle recipe

Yes, it is actually possible to eat delicious noodles on a low-calorie diet. This vegan noodle recipe is loaded with healthy nutrients and it’s actually low in calories. I used this recipe as a stable in my own journey to losing 50 pounds. It’s especially helpful in a weightless journey if you use rice noodles in the recipe. It cuts the calories way down and there seems to be something about the way the ingredients work together in this recipe that helps boost the metabolism and burn those fat cells (at least it did for me. I can’t guarantee similar results for others).
