Peanut Noodle Bowls
This is a perfect meal for a busy weeknight! The sauce whips up super quick, the noodles take about 3 minutes to prepare and then, really all you have to do is chop veggies! Go ahead, make this this week... you deserve a "night off!"
1'' chunk of ginger, peeled
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2-4 Tbsp warm water
1/4-1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 Tbsp sucanat (sugar)
Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. For a thinner, more dressing-like sauce, add more warm water.
1/2 pkg Cappellini noodles (super thin spagetti-like noodles)
tofu (or protein of your choice)
Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and toss with a little peanut sauce. I like to arrange the toppings on a platter and then fill everyone's bowl with noodles. I then let them choose their own toppings (pending clean hands...) and put it on top of their noodles. Its a neat way to get kids involved in what they're are eating, and its surprising how excited they get! And, of course, top with more yummy peanut sauce!
