We love Thai cuisine and once in a while I make my family favorite at home..
You wont believe how quickly and easily it comes together. 5 minutes of prep work, and then the sauce is ready in the time it takes for the noodles to cook. You can’t beat that on a busy week night when you just have to get something on the table, and you want it to be fresh, homemade and healthy.
So are you ready to get started?
Fill a pot full of water and bring it to a boil. While you’re waiting on it boil and for the Noodles to cook, do all of your prep work. Chop the carrots,green onions, cucumber, chilli and cilantro. Then make the sauce in a small mixing bowl combine the sesame oil, soy sauce, sriracha, peanut butter ( I prefer the crunchy one), honey and grated Ginger & garlic . mix it vigorously until smooth :)
