It might sound nuts, but these Thai noodles are totally nut-free! Sunflower seed butter replaces peanut butter to create a creamy sauce that’s reminiscent of its peanut-based counterpart, but without inclusion of the common allergen. The chickpea spaghetti provides protein, but you can add organic chicken, grass-fed steak strips or shrimp for additional flavor. Or, hold the meat for a vegan-friendly dish that’s satisfying and sure to find itself in your weekly dinner rotation.
