As I’ve mentioned, on weeknights I strive to create healthy and easy meals that are also delicious. After a long day at work, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen so that I can eat something healthy for dinner. That’s why I keep several recipes like this in the back of my mind! It’s delicious and healthy but so easy to make.
If you like the sauce, make extra and keep it in the fridge. You can use it as a salad dressing or marinade for another type of vegetable!
Miso Cucumber Noodles with Eggplant and Beyond Meat
1 medium cucumber
1 cup sliced eggplant
1 serving (about 6 strips) grilled Beyond Meat
1 tbsp miso
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp minced ginger
1 tbsp water
Begin by slicing your eggplant. Put a little oil in a pan and add in eggplant. Put a lid on the pan and let cook for about 5 minutes, stir occasionally.
Meanwhile, wash and dry your cucumber. Using a vegetable peeler, make noodles out of the cucumber. Place them in a bowl and set aside.
Combine miso, vinegar, ginger, and water to make your sauce. Adjust the amount of water to create the desired thickness. Drizzle a little sauce over your cooking eggplant, and cook for a few more minutes.
Saute the Beyond Meat strips for about 3 minutes on each side. Place eggplant & Beyond meat over your cucumber noodles, drizzle with remaining sauce, and enjoy! A quick, easy, and healthy meal 🙂
