Peanut Noodles

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 oz. Barrilla Plus thin spaghetti (or any whole grain pasta)
  • 1 cup carrots (I use the shredded ones from Trader Joe’s and chop them even smaller)
  • 2 cups frozen shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup Thai peanut sauce
  • 2 Tbs. creamy peanut butter
  • 2 Tbs. soy sauce (or Bragg’s Aminos)
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • coarsely chopped peanuts

PREPARATION

  • Bring lightly salted water to a boil. Add noodles, return to boiling and cook 5 minutes. Stir in edamame; cook, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes longer or until noodles and edamame are tender. Drain and return to saucepan.
  • In a mixing cup, mix together peanut sauce, peanut butter, and soy sauce until smooth. Pour peanut sauce into pan with noodles. Add raw carrots, sprinkle in cilantro and peanuts.
