I am giving you the picture of ingredients, because, well, the actual sauce looks, well, like peanut butter sauce, I didn't have any peanuts or scallions to garnish, so I decided to omit the finished product picture. Debbie Macomber's book didn't even have a picture! If you don't have all the ingredient, just omit or improvise, taste and adjust. It is a bit of a list, but substitue, make it your own!
Spicy Sesame Peanut Noodles
1/2 c peanut butter
1/4 c soy sauce
2 tbsp warm water
1 tbsp peeled, chopped, ginger (I cheated and used jarred ginger)
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp honey or brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 tsp chili paste
1/2 lb vermicelli, linguine, or asian noodles of your choice
2 green onions, chopped
chopped peanuts, if desired
Cook pasta, rinse and drain, and place in bowl. In a food processor or blender, process the first eight ingredients, until smooth. If too thick, add a little more warm water. Pour over noodles, sprinkle with onions and peanuts if desired.
I only used half the sauce, and I still have some leftover to use on a salad tomorrow! Or, I have some chicken potstickers in mind that may taste really good with this poured over it.
I am so pleased to have found this recipe, and I hope you enjoy it too.
