Peanut Noodles

There has been a lot of trial and error going on recently with recipes. Some just aren’t good, others need a little bit of work before they’re shared. I’ll get to it! (But seriously it is summer time…)

This picture isn’t the best, whoops!

 This one worked out perfectly the very first time. It doesn’t get much better than that.

I’m not going to call this a Thai dish, because I’m sure it is nowhere nearr authentic. But it has a sweet and sour peanut sauce, some eggs, noodles, and vegetables. Obviously I have been inspired by something!

I tried to keep my measurements as accurate as possible, but to be honest… I eyeball a lot of things when I’m just planning on cooking for myself. I knoww, such a bad idea if I want to share the recipe later/ actually recreate it. There is something to be said for just tasting as you go, and adding whatever feels right though. That’s where you can really get creative!

Anyway this recipe serves two.

Ingredients:

2 servings, thin noodles (pasta or rice noodles)

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 clove of garlic, grated or minced

3 eggs, scrambled

1 cup of blanched green beans, chopped

1 handful of greens (kale, chard, spinach), chopped

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

Directions:

First you can start by bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Give your green beans a rinse and then once the water boils you can drop them in, turn of the heat, and let cook for about a minute. Then strain and run under cold water to stop the cooking. Refill your pot, boil your noodles until they are al dente. Strain and set aside.

Meanwhile you can start the peanut sauce, mix the peanut butter, honey, cider vinegar, and garlic in a small bowl, season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust if necessary. If the sauce if still really thick you can add some water until it thins out, but it will melt a little when it’s being cooked. For the beans trim off the end, and chop into half inch pieces. Wash your greens, and chop them up as well now. In another small bowl you can scramble your eggs.

Heat a frying pan on medium heat, and add about a tablespoon of olive oil. When this is heated you can throw in your noodles and green beans. Toss for a minute, then you can pour in your eggs and stir it around so that it is mixed in with the noodles. once those are pretty well done you can pour over your peanut sauce and add your greens to wilt them a bit before serving. Mix everything until it looks evenly coated in sauce, and season with salt and pepper before serving!
