Veggies and rice noodles with a spicy peanut sauce

Category: Main Dishes - Pasta

Suitable for a: vegan diet



1 package of pad thai rice noodles

1/2 package of firm tofu

1/2 a head of brocolli, steamed

1 cup of yellow and greeen beans, steamed

1 Tbs vegetable oil

For Sauce:

1/2 cup of natural peanut butter

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1 bunch of chopped green onions

1 Tbs soy sauce

Juice and zest of 1/2 a lime

1/2 tbs minced garlic

hot water



For sauce:

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor/blender.

You are adding the hot water to thin it out as much as you would like.

Adjust soy sauce and lime to taste. I actually use about 1/4 of a lime's worth of zest and juice.

For the rest:

Boil 3 cups of water. Take pot off heat.

Soak noodles in water for 5 mins, then rinse under cold water for 30 seconds.

While noodles are cooking, steam your veggies, and drain your tofu.

Heat a skillet on low to medium and add vegetable oil and scramble your tofu and heat until warmed through. Then add in veggies, noodles and sauce. Mix until sauce is warmed through.

Additional comments:


The spicy peanut sauce makes a fantastic dip for anything, including sweet potato wedges if you leave it a little thicker (use less hot water).

You can also use the sauce just to top steamed veggies, or in a stir fry.
