Spicy Thai Noodles

Spicy Thai Noodles

I happen to enjoy Thai food, but rarely get to eat it because I have no one to go with me.  Sniff, sniff.  So homemade spicy Thai  noodles to the rescue!  I found this recipe on A Small Snippett, but I listened to the reviews and made the changes they recommended.  BTW, you can eat this either hot or cold.  Convenient, eh?  Eh??

SPICY THAI NOODLES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 box rice noodles (you can substitute it with angel hair pasta or linguine)
  • 1/2 cup sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 6 tbsp honey
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 3/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 3/4 cup crushed peanuts

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Boil noodles.  Drain and set aside.
  • Chop scallions, julienne the carrots (I purchased julienned carrots.  So much easier!) and crush peanuts.
  • In a small saucepan, heat up the sesame oil, peanut butter, red wine vinegar, and crushed red pepper over medium heat.
  • Strain crushed red pepper out and reserve mixture.
  • To the oil, whisk in the honey and soy sauce.
  • Toss the mixture with noodles.
  • Top with a little bit of scallions, carrots, and peanuts.  Enjoy!
