Peanut Butter Garlic Noodles




I never thought peanut butter can be so great in savory dishes. I've been using it for desserts all the time and peanut flavored ones are my all time favorites. But recently I've discovered that peanut butter is delicious when mixed with garlic and teriyaki sauce and used as a sauce for noodles. It's for those who like sweet and salty dishes. If you like extra crunch, garnish your noodles with some chopped peanuts but personally I prefer creamy noodles without any large chunks of nuts. For this dish I used rice noodles but you can use any type of wheat noodles too. It will still be delicious. If you don't have teriyaki sauce, I guess you could substitute it with 1/2 tbsp soy sauce + 1/2 tbsp honey and you may add some ginger too. It will not be the same though. Anyway, this is a super basic recipe and if you have a few spare minutes it can be prepared in no time.

Peanut Butter Garlic Noodles

140g (5oz) rice noodles
2 tbsp (32g) peanut butter
1 tbsp (15ml) Teriyaki sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp water

1) In a small bowl, mix together peanut butter, Teriyaki sauce, water, garlic and salt. Set aside.

2) Cook noodles according to directions. Drain well.

3) Mix noodles with peanut sauce and sprinkle some chopped roasted peanuts on top. Serve immediately.

Makes 2 small servings
