Prepare sauce: In a bowl, whisk together all sauce ingredients until smooth. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat ½ tbsp oil on high. Add half of the portobellos in a single layer and cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with ½ tbsp oil and remaining portobellos and add to plate.
In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tbsp oil on medium. Add bok choy, cut sides down. Add peas and bell pepper and stir-fry until bok choy is slightly wilted, bell pepper is tender-crisp and peas are bright green, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt.
In a separate bowl, toss together noodles, half of the carrots and 1/2 cup of the sauce. Divide noodle mixture, mushrooms, bok choy mixture, remaining half of carrots and almonds among bowls. If using, top with scallions, hemp seeds and sesame seeds. Drizzle bowls with remaining sauce.
This easy skewered chicken with an Asian-inspired cashew sauce will become a staple in your household throughout the summer – you can marinate the chicken the night before and just throw it on the grill when you get home. Try it with a side of brown rice or quinoa sprinkled with chopped cilantro.
Black-eyed peas are a staple in the South and, when coupled with whole grains (think brown rice or corn bread), they become a complete meatless protein. Plus, we call upon low-cal, zero-fat and cholesterol-free egg whites to hold it all together.
