This is a cold noodle recipe with a spicy, Asian-inspired peanut butter sauce. It may sound wierd if you’ve never had anything like it before, but only takes a minute to get used to! If you’re anything like me you may find yourself not only loving them but being overcome with cravings that seemingly manifest out of thin air.
The sticky-sweet, sour and tangy sauce is made by enriching peanut butter with fresh ginger, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar and red chile pepper. Everything is whizzed together in a blender until super smooth and creamy. A garnish made of toasted sesame seeds, cilantro and green onion boosts the flavor of the noodles even further. They make the best lunchbox treat and the perfect potluck, barbecue or picnic food.
I love that I can go straight to my refrigerator and nosh on something so satisfying whenever the urge strikes me. Whether it be the middle of the day or midnight; any time’s a good time to eat peanut butter noodles! They never fail to please.
