I am no chef. I make salmon, spaghetti, tacos, cheese quesadillas…lather, rinse, repeat…

Enter The Taste. I became a bit obsessed with this show over the holiday break. OK a LOT OBSESSED. Like…I could watch Anthony Bourdain and Chef Ludo all day. Those chefs are making artwork on one spoon!

You know what that means? I have to branch out. There is more food out there than my four measly dishes. I’m not a chef, but I can do this. I’m starting slow, adding my own bits and pieces to what I find, and diving in.

First up…Quick & Easy Asian Noodles!

These quick, easy, Asian Noodles taste like they were prepared by a professional, but they are so simple a beginner can make them.

Quick & Easy Asian Noodles Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 lb. Whole wheat thin spaghetti*
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2-3 Tablespoons soy sauce (more or less to taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter (I like crunchy), to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 Teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  • 3 Scallions, sliced
  • 1/4 Cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 Cup chopped dry roasted peanuts

Coconut oil is a great substitute in these Easy Asian Noodles

PREPARATION

Boil water in a medium pan, and add noodles.

While noodles are cooking, in a large mixing bowl, whisk all other ingredients together.

Drain noodles and add to mixing bowl, toss until coated well.

Sprinkle more crushed peanuts and cilantro and enjoy!

*You can use any thin noodle for this dish. I searched high and low for Soba Noodles, and just could not find them.
