Spicy Thai Noodles with Vegetables

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

This makes an excellent side dish to go with main-dish stir fries or satays. Add meat to make a main dish. You can locate lemongrass and fish sauce in most Oriental markets.

Superb! A relatively easy and authentic recipe. Some may want to decrease the peanut butter to keep it lighter though.
