26 - Noodles with Peanut Sauce

I had first listed this as golden tofu with peanut sauce, but realized that the basic recipe we made was just noodles with a Chinese style sauce. Here it is:

Boil water for pasta.  This recipe is probably enough for about one half pound--you'll need more sauce for more pasta.    While it’s cooking combine 3 tablespoons peanut butter, 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, 2 cloves crushed garlic, three teaspoons soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 teaspoon brown sugar--with 2-4 tablespoons warm water. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt--taste and adjust accordingly.

Cook pasta. Drain. Mix with sauce, and top with 1/2 chopped scallions and more cilantro

You could also toss in cubes of caramelized tofu.

Mix and match any of the above as you see fit.
