Serves: 4

Ingredients:

½ cup Once Again Organic Peanut Butter

½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

¼ cup warm water

¼ cup sweet chili sauce

¼ cup fresh lime juice

2 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp dark brown sugar

1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced

2 tsp soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

1 clove garlic, chopped

 

1 8 oz box or bag Pad Thai rice noodles

 

1 cup carrots, julienned or shredded

1 cup red bell peppers, julienned

1 cup snow peas, julienned

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 lime, wedged

 

  1. Place the peanut butter, cilantro, water, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, rice vinegar, sugar, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot chili sauce and garlic in a blender.  Purée until smooth.  Set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.  Add the vegetables, season lightly if desired, and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until vegetables have softened but still maintain some crunch.  Set aside.
  3. Cook the noodles in simmering salted water for 1-2 minutes.  Rice noodles cook very quickly.  Drain the noodles and place back in the pot.  Toss with the peanut sauce.
  4. To serve, arrange the noodles in a shallow bowl or on a plate.  Top with a large scoop of the vegetables.  Garnish with a lime wedge.
  5. Enjoy!
