Noodles With Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Shire Born

With subtle sesame and a sharp kick of garlic, this authentic Chinese dish from is absolute comfort food--it's easy, stores well, and pleases even the pickiest of eaters. I like to serve it with my Zha Xiao Wan Zi (Fried Chinese Meatballs). The peanut sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for several weeks.

This recipe is great for a fast & flavorful meal. I love the combination of peanut butter & sesame oil. The heaviness of the sauce is off- set by the crisp coolness of sliced cucumbers. I've made this version several times, each time reducing the amount of garlic.. The first time I used 4 and it overpowered the dish too much with a raw garlic taste. I recommend trying this with a lighter hand on the garlic, or roast the garlic first.
