Spicy Szechuan Peanut Sauce

Spicy Szechuan Peanut Sauce created by Sackville

A bowl of these spicy-peanutty noodles is so good. Asian-style comfort food. Serve hot in winter. Cool down and pair with veggies to make a fabulous salad in the summer.

ingredients

directions

  • Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
  • Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid (keeps 1 week, chilled; or distribute among 3 small containers and freeze what you don’t want to use within a week).
  • To use: Boil 1 lb Asian noodles or spaghetti until al dente.
  • Toss with ¾ cup of sauce (or more to taste), finely chopped scallions and chopped peanuts.
  • Note: In the winter, I eat these noodles hot.
  • In summer I rinse under cold water, cool and drain and serve them as a spicy noodle salad, often adding shredded bok choy, carrots, snowpeas, lots more of the peanut sauce, etc.

    This was really yummy. I made as directed with Chinese noodles and it was a real hit at my house. Thanks for sharing, Ev.

    Very flavorful, but not too hot. I didn't have Hoisin Sauce, so that may have had something to do with it. Extra siracha was added to my plate, and it was just perfect after that! Served over a mix of stir-fried veggies and venison.

    I really enjoyed this. I didn't have the chili sauce, so I used the red pepper flakes. I also used some chili flavored oil and sesame oil - 1/8 C. each to make the 1/4 C. of oil called for. Gave it a nice kick. I boiled up some whole wheat spaghetti, stirred in this sauce, topped with a sliced scallion and toasted sesame seeds to mirror the sesame oil in the recipe. Besides, I didn't have any peanuts. Thanks evelyn/athens for this recipe.
