A bowl of these spicy-peanutty noodles is so good. Asian-style comfort food. Serve hot in winter. Cool down and pair with veggies to make a fabulous salad in the summer.

Directions

  1. Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid (keeps 1 week, chilled; or distribute among 3 small containers and freeze what you don’t want to use within a week).
  3. To use: Boil 1 lb Asian noodles or spaghetti until al dente.
  4. Toss with ¾ cup of sauce (or more to taste), finely chopped scallions and chopped peanuts.
  5. Note: In the winter, I eat these noodles hot.
  6. In summer I rinse under cold water, cool and drain and serve them as a spicy noodle salad, often adding shredded bok choy, carrots, snowpeas, lots more of the peanut sauce, etc.
