Easy Recipes From Smeag: Pasta With Peanut Sauce

Posted by Princess Grr , Apr 18 2010 · 112 views

Easy Recipes from Smeag
Today's recipe was given to me by Rob, aka Janus. Rob is a vegetarian, so this dish contains no meat - but it does contain lots of deliciousness! It's a Thai-influenced dish which requires almost no 'cooking,' in fact - boiling pasta and using a blender is the height of complexity here. it's even served at room temperature; no ovens necessary.


Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter - I used chunky, but creamy is fine too
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or teriyaki marinade
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced, or garlic powder to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes, or spices to taste (I used two Vietnamese chili sauces)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 20 ounces pasta (I used thin, whole wheat spaghetti)
  • 2 cucumbers, peeled, seeded and cut in small pieces
  • 1 cup thinly sliced scallions (I substituted bamboo shoots)
  • 1 cup red peppers, thinly sliced and 1 inch in length (I used green pepper - I was out of red)
I used smaller amounts than called for in the recipe, since I was only preparing this for myself.

Preparation
Carefully slice the cucumbers, peppers, and other vegetables you wish to include.

Using a blender, mix the Peanut butter, teriyaki marinade, lemon juice, garlic, spices, sugar and hot water until a smooth sauce is formed. A personal warning: seriously, use a blender. Trying to mix this by hand will be frustrating and fruitless.

Boil the pasta, rinse it under cold water, and drain. Toss with the vegetables, and then stir in the sauce. Serve at room temperature and enjoy!



Now wasn't that easy and delicious?

I remember having something like this a while ago, though my dad put in way to much peanuts which kinda ruined it.

Chunky peanut butter, really Smeag? I thought I knew you...

Sounds tasty though, I do tend to like Thai food.

Thai is the best in the world. I love experimenting around with Asian styled cooking.

I'm totally going to try this out sometime. <3

How many people does that recipe serve? Because I'm living in an on-campus house next year that I'm fairly certain has a kitchen, and I'd love to try this for at least one or two other people I'll be living with.

You're daft! Creamy peanut butter is like ginger ale without the ginger, or rock music without the guitar.

As described, the recipe should make about eight servings. I only made about four.

Have you tried the recipe with soy sauce instead of teriyaki marinade? I love teriyaki but all I have is soy sauce. Is the consistency basically the same?

I just tried my own spin on it (Brocolli instead of cucumber, Sambal Ulek instead of chilli). Very good. Nice job.
I used soy sauce, and the consistency seems a bit runnier than what you have there. Tastes great though.
