Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce

(sort of Thai-ish.)

  • 8 ounces uncooked rice stick noodles
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 ounces bean sprouts
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into fourths and sliced thinly crosswise
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Heat 2 quarts water to boiling in 3-quart saucepan.
Break noodles in half and pull apart slightly; drop into boiling water.
Cook uncovered 1 minute; drain.
Rinse in cold water; drain and set aside.

Mix peanut butter, soy sauce, gingerroot, and red pepper in same saucepan until smooth.
Gradually stir in broth.
Add noodles, bean sprouts, bell pepper, and onions; toss.
Sprinkle with cilantro.

Personally, I prefer this recipe to one I got from a friend that is supposed to be "superb" and "authentic."
