Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles

Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles is another weeknight go to meal in my house. So easy to prepare and to add some delicious soy marinated chicken or sauteed shrimp to make a whole meal. A total take out-fake out that you’ll be skipping the take out to make this weekly too.

Very little ingredients in this dish but I always encourage to add what you have on hand. I had red peppers, mushrooms and carrots, but this would be great with broccoli, zucchini, asparagus. The options are really endless. Just throw whatever veg you have in the pan, it’s a stir fry like dish that will be delicious with anything. I promise.

In the sauce I use Sambal Chili Garlic Paste and Sriracha, I like the contrast of the two spices, but it’s not an overwhelming spice. It leaves you craving more. This is a great sauce to use in chilled noodles too, the longer you let it set up in the fridge the better. I typically eat the leftovers cold because it’s just so dang good.

This is another dish that is all about the toppings. I used chopped dry roasted peanuts, cilantro, chopped green onion, and black sesame seeds. I love texture with Asian noodle dishes and there’s nothing better than having the crunch and saltiness of peanuts on noodles.

I like using Annie Chun’s Brown Rice Noodles, they seem to stay together better and have better texture than other brands. Just my honest opinion and not a paid ad.

Wine Pairing Recommendation:Β This dish is begging for a dry Riesling. German is always my go to for Riesling. Don’t settle for less.
