Stephen and I both love Asian inspired dishes, and I was excited to give this one a try. It’s such an easy dinner and it uses staple ingredients that we always have in the house, which is always a plus. We both loved this recipe.

Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles 

Recipe from Buns In My Oven

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

12 oz Whole Wheat Thin Spaghetti

1-2 Tbsp Red Pepper Flakes (2 Tbsp will be very spicy)

1/2 Cup Sesame Oil

3 Tbsp Honey

6 Tbsp Soy Sauce

1/4 Cup Peanut Butter

*Green Onions, Chopped Peanuts, or Chopped Cilantro for topping. I didn’t have these on hand, so I didn’t use them. However, I think they would add great texture and flavor.

Directions:

Cook Noodles. Set Aside.

Heat sesame oil and red pepper flakes over medium heat for about 3 minutes. Strain oil into a bowl using a fine mesh strainer (discarding the red pepper flakes). Stir in peanut butter until combined and melted. Add honey and soy sauce, mixing until combined.

Toss noodles with the sauce. Add desired toppings. Serve!
