Chinese Noodles with Broccoli in Peanut Sauce Recipe
- 1 pack of any Miracle Noodle Pasta (I like the spaghetti or Fettuccine)
- 1 1/2 pounds broccoli florets
- 1 large red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter
- 1/2 cup water, divided
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp fresh minced ginger
- 1/2 cup green onion, chopped (optional)
In a colander drain and rinse Miracle Noodles very well. Pat dry with a few paper towels. Set aside.
Whisk peanut butter, 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and vinegar in a medium bowl until smooth. Set aside.
Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli and cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to soften and brown in spots, about 6 minutes.
Add the remaining 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon soy sauce to the pan along with bell pepper noodles, and garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring frequently, until the pepper has softened and the liquid has evaporated, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the reserved peanut sauce and toss to coat. Optional: Garnish with fresh chopped green onions.
