Spicy Peanut Noodles

I came across this recipe ages ago on the Vegan Cooking LJ community and bookmarked it for future use. And finally, that future is here. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being veal and 10 being candy and unicorns, I'd rate these noodles a solid 9. And also a solid tasty.

Spicy Peanut Noodles
Original recipe posted here; what's below is how I did it.

2 Tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon chili garlic sauce

1/3 cup (frozen) peas
1/3 cup sliced carrots

4 ounces soba noodles

Cook the soba noodles according to the package directions - mine said 5 to 6 minutes. Make the sauce while the noodles are doing their thing.

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger, and chili garlic sauce in a large skillet over medium heat; stir it a bit until the peanut butter melts and everthing comes together. Add the peas and carrots.

When the noodles are done, drain them and add them to the skillet. Toss to coat.

Consume and enjoy.

Serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a side. Or just 1 if you have an extra stomach where your soul should be.

thank you for this!

the photos look great (what kind of camera do you use?) and your writing style is awesome.

found you in vegancooking on livejournal.

You're welcome! You should try them out. They're super tasty. And not bad re-heated, either, as I learned today.

My camera is a Nikon D70. I love it to death. :)

I have a few peanut sauce recipes bookmarked as well that I have yet to try. My boyfriend is not a fan of peanut sauce or soba or udon noodles so I've swept the idea aside for ages. Yours looks delicious. I really want to make this soon, but leave out the ginger, as I'm not a ginger fan.

These would be fine without the ginger - it's not an overwhelming flavor. It sucks that your boyfriend is against all things peanut sauce AND soba noodles. They're both so delicious.
