Working from home this year has meant that I can have some fun cooking quick lunches for myself (and Brett!) during the middle of the day. I am a huge meal prep fan, and always cook our lunches ahead of time, but this week I decided to stray a bit from the menu. I made this amazing vegan peanut noodles recipe with some fresh bean sprouts I grew on the countertop, and it was SUCH a weekday treat!
