peanut butter noodles

Thursday, June 2, 2011

These nutty noodles have it all- sweet, savory, crunchy and creamy. They are made with kids favorite ingredients (peanut butter & noodles!) and are super easy to prepare.

Substitute the veggies with your family’s favorites (shredded carrots or cucumber)!  Top the noodles with chopped peanuts or toasted sesame seeds. 

1 pound soba or spaghetti noodles
1 cup bean sprouts
1 cup snow peas, tips removed & cut in half on a diagonal
1 cup red bell pepper, juliened into ultra-thin strips

1 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup sesame oil or olive oil
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
juice of 1 lime
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
1 garlic clove, minced
red pepper flakes, to taste

1.)  Cook the noodles according to package directions.
2.)  While the pasta is cooking, place the peanut butter, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, water lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a food processor.  Pulse until thoroughly blended.  Add pepper flakes.
3.)  Drain the pasta and rinse quickly with cold water.  Shake off all excess water.
4.)  Place the pasta in a large bowl.  Add the bean sprouts, snow peas, red pepper and three-fourths of the peanut sauce.  Toss until combined.  Taste for additional sauce or seasonings.  Serve warm or cold
