  • 3 large cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger optional
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha more or less to taste
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or gluten free alternative
  • 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Instructions

  • While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce and prep the toppings.

Sauce

  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all ingredients until fully combined. Set aside.
  • If peanut butter is a little clumpy, that's ok, it will melt once it hits the hot pasta.

  • Enjoy!

Notes

Want to make this even easier and healthier? Omit the garlic and replace with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Omit the brown sugar and sesame oil. A little lighter, but still TOTALLY delish. :) This makes the calories 529 per serving. 
*Omit if vegetarian, but you will lose some of the "Thai" flavor. I'd love to hear if you guys have a favorite substitute! I've heard mushroom sauce is great.
**If you're not sure how to make an over easy egg: Heat a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray. Crack in egg (I work with 1 - 2 eggs at a time). Cook for about 2 minutes, flip, and cook for another 2 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on how runny you like your yolks. Season with salt and pepper.
***This reheats great, but does dry out in the fridge, so just mix the noodles with a little water before nuking in the microwave!
**** Nutritional information does not include toppings (eggs, peanuts, etc).
