|Spicy Thai-Inspired Man-Noodles|
Sometimes I cook in a kitchen other than my own...with only the ingredients I have on hand...with scant equipment. This recipe originated in one such kitchen owned by 4 men thus the playful name Spicy Thai-Inspired Man-Noodles. No men were harmed in the making of this dish.
Be forewarned, in traditional man-kitchen style, I did not measure anything for this recipe. Everything is an estimate and all ingredients are based on things I had on hand. Feel free to take liberty with this dish. This is how I cook 90% of the time.
Spicy Thai-Inspired Man-Noodles
1 package whole wheat linguini noodles
1 large handful of snow peas
1 bunch of cilantro
1 bunch of green onions/scallions
1/2C Peanut butter
6T Hot Sauce
1t Soy Sauce
Boil noodles according instructions on package.
Dice the bunch of green onions, and cop the cilantro. I added about this much cilantro which was slightly less than a bunch.
|Why a sauce pan? It's what I had on hand. You can be all un-man-like and use a skillet if you prefer.|
Next, the sauce: Add approximately 1/2C peanut butter, 1t soy sauce, and 1/2C water to saucepan over medium heat. Next, I added about 6T of hot sauce. This is the part where you should add hot sauce to taste. Stir until your sauce begins to bubble and looks about like this:
What brands did I use?
|Kroger creamy peanut butter, Frank's RedHot Wings Sauce, and a packet of soy sauce swiped from the grocery store sushi counter.|
Why didn't I measure anything?
|This was the one and only measuring device in the man-kitchen.|
