This is one of those amazing recipes that just happens to be vegan. The peanut butter (legume) and udon noodles (grain) also make it a complete protien, sweet right? Udon noodles can be found at an Asian grocery or specialty foods store. You can make these with other types of noodles if your want, but the udon noodles really makes the dish authentic.
