Broccoli Peanut Noodles

Yield 2 Servings, more for sauce


Easy Peanut Sauce  (Save 1/3-1/2)

The Noodle Part


  1. Begin cooking the pasta, in a medium to large pot, according to package directions.
  2. While the pasta cooks, wash and chop the broccoli into bite-size pieces.
  3. If using, chop the green onions and cilantro. Place the peanuts in a small plastic bag and pound with a mallet or can until crushed.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients until smooth and creamy. For extra creamy sauce, use a food processor to blend together the ingredients.
  5. About two minutes, before the pasta is fully cooked, add the broccoli to the pasta water. Continue boiling until bright green and just tender. Do not overcook the pasta or the broccoli!
  6. Drain the pasta/broccoli mixture thoroughly and place in a large bowl. Add ½ of the peanut sauce and stir until well combined. (Note: Save the other half of the sauce and use for wraps, a stir fry, or as a dipping sauce for fresh or steamed veggies. It will keep in the refrigerator 3 days.)
  7. Top with chopped cilantro, sliced green onion and crushed peanuts if using.
