Spicy Peanut Noodles

This is one of the recipes I have done over the years. This one was a 2 person serving that I cut in half for one. It is adapted from our first book.

Thai Style Peanut Noodles

In a quart freezer bag:
1 3-ounce package ramen (no flavor packet)

In a small container or second bag:

1/4 cup peanut butter
11/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce (lower sodium if preferred)
1/2 tsp dried onion
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp vinegar (rice preferred)

FBC Method:

Bring 2 cups water to a near boil and take off the stove. Cover the noodles with around 1 1/2 cups, seal the bag tightly and put in a cozy for 5 to 10 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup water to the peanut mix, stirring in slowly till combined.
Drain the noodles, toss with the sauce.

One pot method:

Bring 2 cups water to a boil in your pot. Take out 1/2 cup and set aside. Add the ramen and cook for 3 minutes. Drain off any remaining water.
Meanwhile add the 1/2 cup water to the peanut mix, stirring in slowly till combined.
Toss the drained noodles with the sauce.
Serves 1.
