This was so delicious! I didn't have chili paste or anything remotely similar, so we skipped it. I used quinoa spaghetti pasta, since we are gluten free. I doubled the sauce and added two cut up sauteed chicken breasts. Came out great!
Very helpful recipe. I was looking for a starting point, so I did make some changes: I used 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (not the can, but the stuff that's in a carton like rice milk), added a little lime juice, left out a T of soy sauce and added a T of peanut butter. I served it with sesame seeds as another reviewer suggested. I also added fried tofu (Pan-Fried Tofu with Spicy Peanut Sauce) and some lightly pan fried broccoli and red pepper.
Lots of flavor and very simple to make. The chili sauce was a MUST. It really made the dish for me. Iâ€™m always looking to add more veggies to my diet, so I put julienne carrots and cucumbers on top (uncooked). They added a lot of texture and complimented the spice from the chili sauce. Next time I want to try adding toasted sesame seeds to the top as well. I also used whole wheat pasta for extra nutrition. This time I used creamy peanut butter. Next time I might try crunchy and omit the chopped peanuts--just for the fun of it. Thanks!
This is an addictive receipe. We crave it and make it often. Better than take out. I have added fresh snow peas, and also a half bag of chinse veggies. I am giong to try with tofu as well. Wonderful sauce. Thanks for sharing.
I loved this recipe after adapting it via other reviewer's suggestions. I added garlic, toasted sesame seeds and peeled, seeded and sliced cucumbers. I decreased the chili paste and served this as a chilled side dish. YUM!
Yum! I used about 6 oz of spaghetti and added a few cups of chopped bok choy when there was 3 min left on the noodles. Then drained them together and added the sauce. Hubby liked it just this way. It was rather saucy though so I will use the full 8 oz of noodles next time.
Delicious! I used chili sauce instead of paste, since it was what I had on hand, and found it to be a bit bland for me. I added some crushed pepper flakes, and it was just perfect. I will definately get some chili paste for next time! Oh, and the peanut butter I used was natural, but it was both sweetened and salted.
Did you guys add sweetened peanut butter or salty peanut butter for this dish?
Our whole family really enjoyed this! Thank you.
This was really yummy! I wasn't sure that 3 T. peanut butter would be enough so I added a bit more. That made it too thick. So next time I'll definitely use less PB. I used red pepper flakes in place of the chili paste. Thanks for posting!
