Maintenance – Thai Peanut Pasta (Gluten-free)

Here is another great recipe that was inspired from Leslie Cerier’s book ‘Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook’. My kids loved it!

Thai Peanut Pasta

1 8 oz box of Soba noodles (or other gluten-free pasta)

1 lb of asparagus

For the Sauce:

1 cup cilantro

1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

3 TBS fresh lime juice

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup water

2 TBS cornstarch

4 cloves of garlic

1 tsp tamari

1 TBS maple syrup

a pinch of chile flakes or cayenne pepper

3 TBS peanut sauce, optional

3 TBS hoisin sauce, optional

Cook the noodles according to the package instructions. Steam the asparagus or add it to the boiling water with the noodles.  For the sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.  Then pour the sauce into a large sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Add the noodles and the asparagus and combine well.  Serve while hot.  This also tastes great the next day served cold!
