Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1 Tblsps soy sauce
  • 1 large clove garlic, mined
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 lb. soba noodles or linguine
  1. In a bowl, mix peanut butter with 1/2 cup boiling water until smooth. Stir in scallions, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and cayenne pepper; set aside. In a large pot of boiling water cook noodles until just tender. Drain noodles and transfer to a serving bowl. Pour on the peanut sauce and toss to combine. Serve hot or at room temperature, which is the Chinese way. Serves 4. I like to add unsalted peanuts to this dish.
