Noodles are high on my list of favorite foods. There is something so comforting in the simplicity of just noodles and sauce. And they are fun to eat.
This recipe is quick, quick, quick. You can dress it up or dress it down to its basics. Either way it’s a very simple no-cook sauce with three main ingredients, and easy to remember ratios. That’s my very favorite part.
1/3 of a 10 oz package authentic Chinese dried noodles
1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce ( or liquid aminos)
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of ground ginger
Shredded cabbage, carrots, scallions or other fresh veggies
Fresh cilantro, torn or chopped
Toasted sesame seeds or Gomasio
Asian Chili Sauce or crushed red pepper
Place noodles in a microwave safe bowl and cover with water. Microwave on high for five minutes. While noodles are working, blend sauce ingredients in a bowl with a fork. Add a bit of water if the sauce is too thick. Drain noodles and add to sauce. Toss noodles to coat and add any optional ingredients, chili sauce (if you like it spicy) or other garnishes.
