Hellooooo, normal! Planned ahead, veggie-loaded, happy belly, normal food. As long as Thai peanut cauliflower is normal? Yes or no? I don’t care either way because it’s waaaaaay more normal than anything we’ve been eating recently and it’s exactly what this girl needs. 😂

We’ve been on a “moving diet” for the past couple of weeks… if you know what I mean. Pizza, takeout, mac & cheese, other forms of pasta, chips. Literally, people, I had greens for the first time in like a month last night. When your kitchen is packed up and you have a million other things to do, finding your “want to cook” button is hard to do. Anybody else feel me?

For those of you who follow us on Instagram, you probably know that we MOVED at the end of May. We left Colorado and moved back to Indiana – into our first home! Needless to say, we’ve had a full plate since the move began. Our house was built in 1920(!), which means it has a lot of character – and it needs a lot of work. So far, we’ve mostly been cleaning. We’ll be painting the office/studio today and getting that room whipped into working order ASAP.

Eventually, we’ll be sharing a whole before + after blog post. But for now, I’ll be sharing TONS of stuff on Instagram. And I promise to get back to our regularly scheduled recipe programming here, too!

Thai Peanut Cauliflower Meal Prep

This Thai peanut cauliflower meal prep recipe is easy to make and loaded with flavor. The roasted cauliflower pairs perfectly with soba and zucchini noodles!

  • Author: The Fitchen
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 lunch portions

Ingredients

  • 6 cups cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • 2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon lemongrass paste
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • 4 oz. soba noodles
  • 2 cups zucchini noodles
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375º and line a baking sheet with parchment. If your baking sheets are on the small side, you’ll probably need to prepare two!
  2. In a mason jar or medium bowl, combine water, peanut butter, olive oil, tamari, sriracha, maple syrup, vinegar, lime juice and ginger. Shake or whisk until the sauce is smooth and combined.
  3. Place the cauliflower florets into a large bowl and pour in 3/4 cup of the sauce. Toss to coat fully. If you prefer, you can put the cauliflower in a large ziplock bag and add sauce, then shake to coat the cauliflower.
  4. Spread the cauliflower onto the baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, tossing halfway.
  5. While cauliflower is baking, you’ll have time to boil your soba noodles and spiralize zucchini! Once both are prepared, I like to toss them in a bowl with shelled edamame and the remaining peanut sauce.
  6. Once cauliflower is done baking, remove from oven and allow to cool.
  7. Portion the soba noodle + zucchini noodle mixture evenly between meal prep containers and scoop cauliflower over top. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and store in the fridge for 2-4 days.

Notes

For meal prep, I recommend only making two days worth of zucchini noodles at a time. They have a tendency to get soggy if they sit in the fridge for much longer. Alternatively, you could omit zucchini noodles entirely and just prep more soba!
