Ingredients

  • 8 oz. spaghetti noodles (gluten-free if desired)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup or brown sugar (more/less to taste)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp. fresh grated ginger (more to taste)
  • Hot water to thin to desired consistency
  • Crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, cilantro, fresh lime juice, green onion, sriracha, red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, taking care not to overcook. Drain when finished.
  2. Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce:Mince garlic and grate ginger. (I use this microplane grater for ginger.) In a medium/large mixing bowl, add all peanut sauce ingredients except water.Heat 3/4 cup water to just under boiling. Add hot water a couple tablespoons at a time, slowly whisking and working the mixture together.Continue adding water and whisking until sauce is thin enough to mix the noodles in. (I usually add about 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup hot water.) Adjust flavors if needed.
  3. When pasta is cooked and drained, immediately add it to bowl with peanut sauce. Gently toss to combine. (Sauce will thicken further when combined with pasta.)
  4. Serve with any desired toppings. Add fresh lime juice or extra tamari for a flavor boost if needed. Great served warm or chilled!
