Sesame Peanut Noodles

My sister-in-law and my niece and nephew came over for a visit today.  My niece wanted to help cook something, so we embarked upon making the ever popular sesame peanut noodles.  Everyone loves these--especially the kids; they're healthy, and they're relatively easy to make.  Jenny did most of the work.  I just sorta talked her through it.

Sesame Peanut Noodles

  • 2 cups of cooked whole wheat spaghetti or rice noodles
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • We made our own peanut butter, because I don't like preservatives, and I don't like to spend three times the money on something I can make myself, and also because we rock!
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • Red pepper flakes to taste (approximately 1/2 to 1 teaspoon)
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

1.  Cook spaghetti or rice noodles as directed by the manufacturer.

2.  Combine all other ingredients; mix until peanut butter is dissolved.

3.  Add sauce to drained pasta; toss until pasta is fully coated.

4.  Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Top it however you would like.  We ate ours with scallions, sprouts, and marinated baked tofu.

Most importantly...
