Thai Peanut Noodles

Thai Peanut Noodles

I love Thai Food and I love noodles. I don’t love having to spend $10 per noodle order and also having to drive to pick it up. I’ve played around with Asian type dishes for a long time. It can be a bit overwhelming since you need a variety of ethnic ingredients. For me that’s OK but for others they are just simply hard to find. I decided to try making a peanut noodle dish and I was pleasantly surprised with how this dish came out. I suggest prepping all the ingredients ahead just to save yourself some time (especially if you have kids!) Enjoy ;)

THAI PEANUT NOODLES

1 Package of Udon or Lo Mein Noodles (or any soft noodle like linguine)

Sauce

  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water according to package directions
  2. Drain and return to pot.
  3. Add 2 TBSP sesame oil and toss to coat
  4. Set aside
  5. Heat remaining 2 TBSP sesame oil in heavy pot over medium-high heat.
  6. Add green onions, carrots, stir-fry veggies, garlic and ginger (any type of veggies you want)
  7. Saute until vegetables soften, about 4 minutes
  8. Add honey, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar and chili-garlic sauce and mix well.
  9. Simmer sauce 2 minutes.
  10. Pour sauce over pasta and toss well.
  11. Transfer to platter and serve warm.
  12. Garnish with additional green onions, julienned cucumber, crushed peanuts and a lime wedge
