Thai Inspired Noodles #PeanutButter

Happy National Peanut Butter Day!!   I LOVE peanut butter so I think this calls for a celebration!  So does my friend, Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventure.  Christie asked us all to join her today in posting recipes featuring Peanut Butter.  I'm sure we are going to have a lot of delicious sweet foods from which to choose but I wanted to go savory.

Some of you may know that on Tuesday and Wednesday we keep our granddaughter and our house becomes toddler centered for these 2 days each week.  Our dinners on Tuesday have come to be known as Toddler Tuesdays when I cook food that is toddler friendly.  

Melody's favorite food in the world is noodles.  I decided to make her some Thai Inspired Noodles.  Peanut Butter and Noodles, what more could a toddler want?  

Dinner doesn't get much easier than this.  Simply boil the noodles adding the precut and packaged veggies during the last one minute of cooking.  

While the noodles are cooking, mix together the peanut butter, soy sauce, chili sauce, garlic and ginger.  Drain the noodles and vegetables, retaining 1 c. of the cooking water to mix with the peanut mixture.

Toss it together with the noodles and veggies and dinner is served.  Our toddler loved this on a Tuesday.  No toddler?  Go ahead and enjoy this on a Meatless Monday or turn Tuesday into Thai Tuesday just for fun.

Thai Inspired Noodles

1/2 c. smooth peanut butter
2 T. soy sauce
1/2 T. garlic paste
1/2  T. ginger paste
1 T. sweet chili sauce
1 (11 oz) pkg. Stir Fry Veggies
1 (8 oz) pkg. Lo Mein Noodles

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.  Add the noodles and cook per package directions, during the last minute of cooking add the veggies to the boiling water with the noodles.

While the noodles cook, stir together the peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and chili sauce.

Drain the noodles and veggies, retaining 1 cup of the cooking water.  Return the water to the pan along with the peanut butter mixture.  Stir together until smooth and melted.  Add the pasta and veggies to the pan and toss to coat with the sauce.  Print Recipe
