Aromatic Noodles with Lime-Peanut Sauce

In honor of St. Paddy's Day, it's Green Eating week at I Heart Cooking Clubs.  For this Irish holiday, I chose a dish featuring Asian flavors. Lots of green veggies and pasta are flavored with peanut sauce.  Originally, I was going to make this dish in February for our pasta themed week, but the snow peas and sugar snaps looked rather sad. 
So I waited. One month later, the veggies are green and crisp.  Ellie describes the vegetables as a "refreshing yin to the yang of the rich, spicy peanut sauce." Very true.
I've made many versions of peanut noodles, but this version is really good. The use of natural peanut butter and roasted peanuts give the sauce a deep, nutty flavor that is not too sweet. The addition of veggies make this a meal in a bowl.
The recipe can be found in The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger or on the Food Network website.  You can also find more green eating at IHCC.  


  1. Peanut sauce sounds great, especially over those veggies. Thanks for the links to Ellie's recipe.

  2. Very pretty and green! ;-) I did really love the lime-peanut sauce from this recipe too. I made it again since I made the bowl to eat over steamed sugar snap peas. Yum!

  3. This recipe has been calling to me ever since we started cooking with Ellie. The appeal of this dish is so enticing. So pretty to look at and the lime-peanut sauce sounds incredible and craveworthy!

  4. I love this kind of dish - crisp green vegetables and noodles - what's not to love?!! And that lime-peanut sauce definitely sounds like it needs to be on my "must-make" list.
