½ lb. rice noodles or linguine
3 tablespoons oil (light untoasted sesame, non-virgin olive, or sunflower)
1 tablespoon each: grated fresh ginger and Sriracha Thai chili sauce
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon ketchup
5 large cloves garlic, minced or pressed
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon tamari, shoyu, or soy sauce
½ teaspoon sea salt (or less if you prefer)
1½ teaspoons organic sugar or sucanat
1 medium carrot, peeled and julienne sliced
4 scallions (green onions), thinly sliced (green and white parts)
¼ cup (lightly packed) chopped fresh cilantro
¼ cup (4 tablespoons) dry-roasted unsalted peanuts, crushed
1. Cook the noodles until al dente according to the package’s instructions. Drain in a strainer or colander.
2. While the noodles are cooking, place all of the sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Stir very well to combine.
3. Prepare the veggies and add them to the sauce bowl. Toss them thoroughly with the sauce.
4. Pour the drained, hot noodles into the bowl and toss well with the sauce and veggies until well combined. Garnish with the peanuts and serve. This dish is good hot, cold, or at room temperature. It is good in a chair, it is good everywhere. It is good for a bribe, it will give you a good vibe. However, it isn’t so good re-heated. If there are any leftovers, they are best served cold or at room temperature.
