Peanut Noodles

Before you go running the other direction, hear me out. These noodles are like nothing I’ve had before. It’s regular spaghetti covered in an Asian inspired peanut sauce. My kids were playing with their friends as I prepared this and they stopped playing at least five times to say, “What is that good smell?” “What are you cooking?”

I’m sorry. Especially if you are allergic to nuts, then I’m really sorry. I just have this thing with peanut butter. I can’t get enough of it. Remember when my sister was trying to get pregnant via in vitro and the doctor told her to eat as many calories and she could…so she ate an entire jar of peanut butter every week? Yeah.

Peanut Noodles

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced (white parts only - reserve green parts for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger (see Note)
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter (use crunchy if you want nuts in it)
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Cook spaghetti in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain.
  2. While noodles are cooking, prepare the sauce. In a small skillet, heat sesame oil over low heat Add the onions (white parts only) and cook until tender. Add the ginger and cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Increase the heat to medium and stir in the peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, sugar, and pepper. Stir until combined. Remove from heat.
  4. Toss spaghetti with sauce and garnish with sliced green onions and peanuts if desired.

Notes

*Fresh ginger can be frozen until ready to use. I don't use a lot of ginger so this is a trick I use often.
