Veggies and Rice Noodles Starring a Spicy Peanut Sauce

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

The spicy peanut sauce makes a fantastic dip for anything, including sweet potato wedges if you leave it a little thicker (use less hot water). You can also use the sauce just to top steamed veggies, or in a stir fry.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For sauce:.
  2. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor/blender.
  3. You are adding the hot water to thin it out as much as you would like.
  4. Adjust soy sauce and lime to taste. I actually use about 1/4 of a lime's worth of zest and juice.
  5. For the rest:.
  6. Boil 3 cups of water. Take pot off heat.
  7. Soak noodles in water for 5 mins, then rinse under cold water for 30 seconds.
  8. While noodles are cooking, steam your veggies, and drain your tofu.
  9. Heat a skillet on low to medium and add vegetable oil and scramble your tofu and heat until warmed through.
  10. Then add in veggies, noodles and sauce. Mix until sauce is warmed through.

This was pretty good, though I didn't think the sauce was all that spicy. I did leave the tofu out but made as written otherwise.

I didn't make the recipe in its entirety, so I won't leave a rating, but I wanted to thank you for posting an excellent spicy peanut sauce! I made it to go with chicken wings, and everyone at the get-together raved about it. I also really appreciated that it uses ingredients that I had on-hand, since it was a last minute sauce we needed.
