Almond Miso Kale Noodles (Gluten-Free & Vegan)

Comfort food but with spring flavors :)

I was inspired by Giada de Laurentis's recipe for buckwheat noodles with an almond butter sauce; we couldn't find gluten-free buckwheat noodles, but my mom did find oatmeal noodles! These noodles taste just like angel hair spaghetti and aren't slimy, which is rare for gluten-free noodles.

handful of oatmeal noodles (gluten-free pasta works!), cooked*
1/2 bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 carrot, peeled and shredded/thinly sliced
2 cups of kale, washed and drained
1 cup of strawberries, quartered
handful of cashews, chopped
1/2 cup of frozen edamame, cooked
1 cup of frozen corn and peas, cooked

dressing:
2 tablespoons of almond butter
1 tablespoon of miso paste
2 teaspoons of rice vinegar
1/2 cup of starchy cooking water (use as much as needed to make the dressing loose enough to pour)

2. Massage 2 tablespoons of the dressing into the kale.
