meatless monday: cold noodles with peanut sauce

June 13, 2011

From the marvelous Food Mayhem, this sauce really couldn’t be any more versatile. After so very many times of losing the recipe, running out of ingredients, feeling creative and improvisational, and just plain being in a hurry, I have never made a bad batch.

Which can’t be said about many things.

It has become essential to my everyday cooking, and I always have a jar of it in the refrigerator. Serve it hot with sautéed onions, carrots and chicken over rice, or drizzle it over brown rice and fresh basil, carrot and onion and eat it in a wrap that cause your taste buds to break into the Hallelujah Chorus.

Cold Noodle with Peanut Sauce

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter, brought to room temperature
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
3 to 4 cloves minced garlic
2/3 cup water
a spoonful of Sriracha sauce, to taste
1 pkg noodles (I use soba), cooked, drained and cooled

Garnish options:
thinly sliced cucumber
thinly sliced onion
crushed peanuts
Sriracha sauce

Stir together peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, vinegar, and garlic in a medium sized bowl.). Whisk in water to desired consistency. Stir until smooth, which may take a little while. You can make this sauce several days before and just store in the refridgerator. 

When you’re ready to serve, simply drizzle peanut sauce on noodles. Garnish with cucumber, onion, crushed peanuts, or Sriracha if desired.  

Live long and prosper,
