Asian Noodles with Peanut Butter and Chilies


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

1 pound dried soba noodles or spaghetti
1/8 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2-1 tablespoon sweetener
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4-8 green onions, sliced
1-3 tablespoons spicy red chili sauce
3-5 tablespoons peanut butter
chopped peanuts, optional


Cook noodles in large pot of boiling, salted water until just tender. While cooking, prepare sauce: Combine sesame oil, soy sauce, sweetener, vinegar, salt, chili sauce, and peanut butter (I use a whisk). Drain noodles when done (I like to rinse them for this recipe). Stir in sauce (I use tongs), and add cilantro and green onions. This can be served cold or hot. Add peanuts to top, if desired. Very good!

Makes: 6 servings, Preparation time: 10 minutes, Cooking time: 15-20 minutes
