Total Time15 mins
Servings: 4 people
- 1 pound spaghetti we use whole grain, ramen is also fantastic
- 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
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon fish sauce *omit if vegetarian
- 1/4 cup peanut butter use an all natural, no sugar only variety
- 4 large Fried eggs**
- Fresh cilantro minced
- Green onion sliced
- Salted Peanuts chopped
- freshly squeezed lime juice
Cook your pasta according to box directions. Drain.
While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce and prep the toppings.
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.
Mix sauce together with drained pasta until fully combined.
Divide pasta equally in four bowls.
Top with fried egg, cilantro, green onions, peanuts, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice!
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!
