There’s no neat story about this one. This is just a comfort-food go-to for me. It’s so easy, and almost all the ingredients are in the pantry. Go ahead, give it a try. It’s even good cold the next day…if it lasts that long. Just don’t be alarmed at the chunky sauce. The peanut butter in the sauce solidifies as it cools. Still just as tasty!
Spicy Peanut Noodles
- 1/2 lb spaghetti, cooked just beyond al dente
- 1/2 c peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
- 3 Tbsp unseasoned rice (or cider) vinegar
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 3 Tbsp soy sauce (I use shoyu)
- scant 1/4 c water
- 1 tsp sriracha
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 2 scallions, sliced
- lime wedges, for serving
In a small sauce pan, combine peanut butter, vinegar, honey, soy sauce, water, sriracha and garlic. Heat until peanut butter is melted and all ingredients are combined.
In a medium bowl, toss noodles with scallions. Pour dressing over and toss to combine.
Squeeze lime slices over servings.
Notes: I added about 1/2 cup shredded chicken. Please do try the lime wedges. It adds a great brightness to the dish. Another great addition would be ginger, about a 1″ piece, grated. Add to sauce.
