Tip of the Day May 13

Peanut Butter and Noodles, the best combo! Audrey loves both so this was the perfect dinner. It was simple as well. Audrey made the sauce and I cooked the noodles. That was it!
Peanut Butter Noodles
  • 1 lb linguine, angel-hair pasta, or soba noodles
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 5 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 5 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp peeled, grated fresh ginger
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
Cook the noodles according to the package directions, then drain and rinse them with cold water. In a large bowl, blend together the peanut butter, vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Add the noodles and toss well. Garnish with toppings, if you like. Serve at room temperature.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Measure ingredients
  2. Mix
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Cook and drain noodles
 How simple is that? This gets 5 stars. And Audrey ate some! The pictures of her helping were not great so here is her plate (she asked me to take a picture of it):


  1. I am going to try this one for Brady...he loves noodles and loves peanut butter - I bet he will love it.

  2. I forgot to add in the post that we used whole wheat pasta and the peanut butter covers the taste. This is a sure thing!

  3. this way of doing a quick peanut sauce is one of my favorites! did i tell you this trick? of course, i usually add some chili garlic sauce to the mix, or red pepper flakes, to give it some kick. throw in steamed veggies and you've got a great stir fry toss going!


Audrey wants to hear from you!
