TGIF!!! I feel like I have had an Asian/ Thai food theme the past few posts- well minus the french toast…
I threw this together for lunch today for my mom and I and I couldn’t have been more happy about how delicious it was. It was SO simple- this is going to be one of those go to recipes now when I have company for lunch and need to put something quick and easy together.
I am still learning all about my new camera and I have a ton left to learn- like to leave table cracks out of pictures- and to not use hot orange place mats. But hey, how else are ya gonna figure it all out? It’s a work in progress and I am having a great time figuring it all out…
Surprisingly I had every single ingredient in my pantry, which makes me all the more proud :). Since it was such a simple meal, I didn’t have many pictures to take of the process, just the finished product.
You should try this, you won’t be disappointed. I promise…
Unless you don’t like peanuts or you’re allergic, in which case, your out of luck on this one. Sorry! Next post I will make sure to cater to the peanut haters ;).
Peanut Thai Sesame Noodles
3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
½ cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 or more for a kick- of red pepper flakes
8 oz linguine noodles
sesame seeds for garnish
green onions for garnish
Cook the noodles in a large pot according to package directions.
While the noodles are cooking, in a medium sauce pan whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, ½ cup chicken broth, minced garlic, ginger, and sriracha chili sauce. Cook over medium heat until smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Drain the noodles and toss in the peanut sesame sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve immediately.
