Noodles and Peanuts

I love this combination. The difference in textures. The way that a peanut sauce grips onto the noodles. What is not to love?

For our last carb filled dinner until April, we tried a new recipe, Gingery Peanut Noodles with Chicken. Quick to make and wonderful to eat.

Gingery Peanut Noodles With Chicken


1/2 cup peanut butter

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

8 ounces spaghetti (1/2 box)

1 1/2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken

1 red bell pepper, sliced

1/2 English cucumber, cut into strips

2 scallions, sliced

2 tablespoons chopped unsalted roasted peanuts


1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain and return it to the pot.

2. In a blender, combine 1 cup water (I’d try 3/4 cup next time) with the peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger. Blend until smooth.

3. Add the peanut mixture, chicken, bell pepper, cucumber, and scallions to the pasta pot and toss to combine. Serve sprinkled with the peanuts.

    The truth of it is that balanced cooking techniques need to satisfy just THREE basic and simple standards the food you eat should not have excessive amount of fat and sea salt i.e. should not be loaded with calories, it should retain it\’s nutrients i.e. it shouldn\’t be empty calories and more importantly, it should taste good.
    Great Info, Terrific to find another Food lover
