Thai Peanut Pasta

Rice Noodles For The Win... This Dinner Is Awesome!

We have been on a quest to change things up in our dinners since I began my journey with going gluten free. We have a meal plan chalked full with new recipes this week. This one was too great not to share. I loved how sweet it was. My husband was not a huge fan but it was a hit with my little one. He was surprised that pasta could taste like peanut butter ;) This one is very filling. You could include chicken with it but I left it out this time. 

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 package of rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion, or regular onion
  • 1 tablespoon of organic butter
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 2 tablespoons of organic chicken broth (or water), plus additional 1-2 tablespoons if needed (if the sauce is too thick).
  • 3 tablespoons of crunchy organic peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos 
  • 1 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar (BRAGGS is a great brand) 
  • 2 teaspoons organic pure maple syrup
  • 1-2 teaspoons Sriracha if you would like it to have a spicy flavor. I left it out for mine. 
  • Use peanuts on top for a garnish 


******Cook rice noodles according to package while working on sauce**********

  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat sauté the onions in the butter until soft.  Reduce heat to medium-low and add the remaining ingredients- water, peanut butter,liquid aminos, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and Sriracha.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil, then add your noodles and stir to coat, top peanuts.
  3. Enjoy!
