Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles
Every so often I want peanut sauce and I could put it on everything.
Tonight I put it over udon noodles and it was delicious.
2 tablespoons fresh ginger. Use only fresh.
4 cloves of garlic
3/4 cup peanut butter
2/3 cup hot water
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons honey
One teaspoon red pepper flakes
One pound of udon noodles
1 chopped red pepper
3 diced scallions
Handful of diced cilantro
Saute the garlic in the sesame oil for two minutes
Mix the ginger and garlic in the food processor and pulse till smooth
Add the sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and red pepper flakes and pulse till smooth.
You may have to add some extra water to make it pourable.
Cook the udon according to the package directions. Drain.
Mix in a bowl with the peanut dressing
Place a bed of fresh spinach on each plate.
Place three to four heaping spoonfuls of udon on each plate.
Top with the scallions, red pepper, cilantro, chopped peanuts and limes.
This can be served hot or cold.
