On: Spicy Peanut Sauce Noodles and Roasted Brusselsprouts

Spicy peanut sauce has long been a favorite of mine, and over the years I have developed a minimalist approach to a recipe that is easy to do mid-week. I have chosen to capitalize on the sweetness of carrots to compliment the chili paste. Enjoy!

Spicy Peanut Sauce Noodles (Gluten Free of course!)


1 Regular package of brown rice gluten free angel hair noodles

2 cups carrots, shredded or chopped small

4 tbs. peanut or almond butter

1/2 cup Tamari Sauce (or other gluten free soy sauce)

1 tbs. chili paste

1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

2 cloves garlic, pressed

1 tbs. Red pepper flakes

Directions: In a large pot, boil 6 cups of water, then add rice noodles. In a medium bowl, combine peanut butter, Tamari sauce, chili paste, red pepper flakes, and garlic, mixing into uniformly thick sauce. Once rice noodles are cooked to soft, drain and return the noodles to their large pot. Immediately add finely chopped carrots, then sauce mixture and stir until sauce is evenly distributed. Serve in bowls, and add cilantro to the top as a garnish.
