Peanut Sesame Noodles

Print Friendly and PDF
This tasty recipe came from the Cooking with Trader Joe's Cookbook and is so flavorful! You can serve it at room temperature as a side dish or cold as a noodle salad. As a variation, you can add any meat to it, like leftover chicken or even tofu chunks to make it a one-dish meal. I made it early in the afternoon as a side dish for dinner, and it was so good, we ate the entire thing while sampling it. The peanut sauce really sticks to the noodles and gives it a creamy, nutty flavor. I would definitely make this again.

8 oz. spaghetti noodles
1 cup carrots, slivered or shredded
1/2 cup thinly slivered cucumber
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup roasted peanuts, chopped

Cook noodles according to package directions and drain. Mix and pour the peanut sauce over the noodles, and toss until coated. Add the carrots and cucumbers. Top with the green onions and peanuts.

Peanut Sauce:
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce (Veri Veri Teriyaki or JES brand)
1/4 cup creamy salted peanut butter
1/4 cup water
2 tsp sesame oil
