What noodles to use

First question first: what noodles should you buy to make this dish? The answer is very simple: the ones we recommend are rice noodles, made with rice flour and water. Many types and many varieties of them exist.

If you can’t find rice noodles in supermarkets where you live, feel free to opt for any other kind of noodles, as suggested in the recipe instructions below.

Ingredients for a perfect dish

This dish is a very simple version of noodles with peanut sauce for when you need something delicious to eat in a short time with very few ingredients. Is very easy to prepare, and also super fast to make. You will be able to make this recipe in only 20 minutes.

What are the ingredients? As said, you will need noodles, peanut hoisin sauce (check the next paragraph), pulled textured fava beans (to make your dish vegan), broccoli, lime, and oil for cooking. You are free to replace broccoli with other vegetables. We highly recommend you use crunchy vegetables to keep the consistency of the dish intact.

Pulled textured vegetarian products are very common in Finland nowadays. The most common ones are pulled oats and pulled textured fava beans. They are high in protein and their texture and taste are great. If finding these products is difficult, find a similar type of textured vegetarian product.
