Spicy Peanut Noodles


Noodles of your choice - 4 ounces
Olive oil
Broccoli florets - 1 cup
Carrot - 1/2 cup, thinly sliced
Peanut butter - 1/3 cup smooth
Veg broth - 1 cup divided
Soy sauce - 1/4 cup 
Vinegar - 2 tbspns
Lime Juice - 1 tbspn
Sriracha sauce - 2 tspns
Sesame oil - 2 tbspns
Fresh ginger - 1 tsp, grated
Garlic - 1 large clove, minced or grated
Sesame seeds - 2 tbspns, toasted
Cilantro - 1 tbspn, chopped
Scallions - 2 small, sliced thinly
Peanut - 1/3 cup, roasted, salted and roughly chopped
Salt to taste

Start the water to cook the noodles – follow package directions, omitting salt, and using a tablespoon of soy sauce in the cooking water instead.
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large sauté pan, and add the broccoli and carrots. Stir fry for about minutes until tender crisp.
Put the peanut butter in a small bowl. Heat 1/2 cup of the broth almost to boiling, and pour over the peanut butter and stir until smooth and blended. This may take a minute, but it will come together. Once it does, add the soy sauce, vinegar, lime juice, sriracha, sesame oil, ginger and garlic, and stir together. Set aside.
When the noodles are done, add them to the pan with the broccoli and carrots, and combine. Pour the sauce over the top, along with the sesame seeds, cilantro and about half of the scallions and half of the peanuts. Stir everything together gently, and if you need to, add a bit more of the warmed broth, until you have a pleasing consistency. Serve with the additional scallions and peanuts sprinkled over each serving.
