Thai Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce


We are 12 days in now but as we were prepping to go on our 30 days of a strict Paleo lifestyle we decided to indulge in some of our favorite things before we started.

It seems Thai flavors were really on our minds as we were getting ready to be without them for awhile. Pad Thai was sounding oh so good.

So we made these Thai Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce to meet that craving. 

This was simple and fairly healthy Pad Thai-ish recipe.

RECIPE:

Thai Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce (adapted from Food.com)
Noodles
12 ounces linguine
4 tablespoons sesame oil
Sauce
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1 cup finely shredded carrot
2 cups frozen stir fry vegetables
3 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
1/2 tablespoon ground ginger or 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce
Directions:
1.Cook pasta in a large pot of salted water according to package directions.
2.Drain and return to pot.
3.Add 2 TBSP sesame oil and toss to coat. Set aside.
4.Heat remaining 2 TBSP sesame oil in heavy pot over medium-high heat.
5.Add green onions, carrots, stir-fry veggies, garlic and ginger.
6. Saute until vegetables soften, about 4 minutes.
7.Add honey, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar and chili-garlic sauce and mix well.
8. Simmer sauce 2 minutes.
9. Pour sauce over pasta and toss well.
10.Transfer to platter and serve warm.
11. Garnish with additional green onions, if desired.

Yields 8 side dish servings or 4 main dish servings.

**Chili-Garlicsauce can be increased or decreased depending on how spicy you like your dish. We like spicy so we used 2 heaping tablespoons.

  2. Hi! I have been searching the internet looking for some sort of Asian peanut noodle recipe that I can take to pot luck.This recipe looks so delicious, I have got to make it! When looking at the picture,it looks like the pasta is spaghetti. Maybe I'm wrong, but could I use spaghetti? I just bought spaghetti for the recipe I would end up making. Thanks so much for posting!
