Peanut-Lime Pasta

Thai-inspired and super simple, this veggie-packed dish is a comfort food a nutritionist can get behind. Make sure to use a peanut butter that contains only peanuts—no added salt, sugar, or oils—for the best nutrition.

  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 2 cups peas

  • 2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • ¾ inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup shelled, unsalted peanuts, toasted and chopped

Directions
