To use the word favorite in a recipe title is big. I’ve worked on and perfected this recipe for a couple of months (my family doesn’t seem to mind.) The fun thing about this recipe is its versatility. You can add any vegetables you want or leave them out. You like chicken? Great. You like pork? Great. Shrimp you say? Perfect. Add whatever protein you have on hand or make it vegan. Its up to you. Let’s get started.
Favorite Peanut Noodles
1/3 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp hoisin
juice of 1 lime
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp of mirin
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp rice vinegar
14 to 16 oz noodles (linguine or udon work well, fresh or dried)
Get the water started for the noodles.
Add the peanut butter to a microwaveable container with a lid. Microwave for 30 seconds, until it gets ooozy. Add the remaining ingredients (except the noodles) to the jar and shake until combined.
At this point, your water should be ready. Add your noodles to the water and cook as directed. Do not overcook because no one wants gummy noodles. When noodles are al dente, drain and immediately add to a large bowl with the sauce and any veggies or protein.* Use tongs to combine.
*You will have extra sauce if you choose not to add veggies or protein.
