PEANUT-LIME PAN NOODLES

Nutty, with a good kick of lime--meet your new favorite noodle recipe...


Use any leftover long noodles, or make some fresh. I've done it with every kind, though linguini and rice noodles are my go-to's for their slurpable properties!



No leftover noodles? Cook some. Rice noodles only take 3 minutes...

Notes: Noodles in the photo are standard linguini.


PEANUT-LIME PAN NOODLES

Ingredients: 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1 Tbsp. peanut butter, 2 tsp. soy sauce, 1 tsp. rice vinegar, 1/4 tsp. sesame oil, 1 1/2 tsp. honey or agave, zest of 1/2 lime, 2 cups leftover cooked long noodles, sesame seeds, chili flakes.

Serves 1-2


1. Heat olive oil, garlic, peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, honey, and most of the lime zest over medium heat, in a pan. Whisk the ingredients until they come together as a smooth sauce.

2. Tumble in the leftover noodles, and stir to coat in the sauce.

3. Remove noodles to a plate, and sprinkle over extra lime zest, chili flakes, and sesame seeds to taste.


Tip: Warm the noodles in the microwave with a teaspoon of water for 30 seconds; they will mix into the sauce easier if they are not cold and stiff.
