Instructions

  1. Cook Noodles: Cook pasta according to directions on package. ( See notes for rice noodles) Drain and chill under cold running water.
  2. Blend the Peanut Sauce: while noodles are cookig, blend the peanut sauce ingredients together using  a blender until smooth.
  3. Toss: Place shredded veggies, bell pepper, scallions, cilantro and jalapeño into a serving bowl. Toss. Add the cold noodles to the serving bowl and toss again. Pour the peanut sauce over top and toss well to combine.
  4. Taste: Adjust the salt (to you liking), add chili flakes if you want and serve, garnishing with roasted peanuts and cilantro and a lime wedge.

Notes

If cooking pad thai style rice noodles, add the noodles to a pot of boiling water. Turn heat off, stir and let steep 2-3 minutes until tender, drain and run under cool water.
