Easy Peanut Noodles
Spicy peanut noodles make an easy meal with an Asian flair.
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup peanut butter, crunchy or creamy
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon seeded and minced jalapeño pepper or crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
4 cups cooked pasta noodles
In a small saucepan, mix together all of the ingredients except the cooked noodles and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, toss the spicy peanut sauce with the noodles. Serve immediately.
