Thai noodle salad w/ peanut sauce recipe?
With the warmer weather, I have been craving a noodle salad with a nice peanut dressing, lots of veggies, and tofu or chicken. I think it is hard to find sauces that don't get clumpy on the noodles...any great recipes?
i get a better blend by heating the sauce slightly. sometimes hot black tea ( which i brew to a little smokiness) is sufficient to get a smooth blend. otherwise i use the microwave.
this is how i do it, if i choose to use peanut butter. i often just use tahini and skip the sesame seed toasting altogether.
0.25 cup sesame seeds
0.25 cup chunky peanut butter
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp minced ginger
5 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp srirachi
2 tbsp brown sugar
toast sesame seeds. reserve 1 tablespoon seeds. in food processor, puree 3 tbsp sesame seeds, peanut butter, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, srirachi, and sugar until smooth. with processor running, add hot water 1 tablespoon at time until sauce has consistency of heavy cream.
Cooking Light has a great Tofu with Finger Licking Peanut Sauce. I loved it and it had just the right amount of heat.
