quick and easy peanut noodles with satay sauceMarch 24, 2012
this takes the cake for SUPER-FAST, easy, impossible to mess up, cheap, and versatile. add only what you’ve got in your cabinet and it’ll be wonderful.
no need to be exact – just a splash of this and splash of that.
substitute away; the only truly necessary ingredients are the first few.
a splash of oil, butter, ghee, or fat
chunks of mostly-cooked broccoli, raw snap peas, or whatever you like
bored of the same old noodles? try adding:
rice wine vinegar and honey for a sweet-and-sour
crunched-up whole peanuts (or other nuts)
a raw version with raw zucchini ‘noodles’, raw grated carrots, and raw soaked and pureed peanuts-cashews-and-lime-juice (i’ve never done this. in fact i just invented it. but i bet it’s amazing, and i can guarantee i’m not the first person to think of it.)
combine all ingredients except noodles in a pot. cook until smooth and combined.
toss with noodles.
