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.
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.
