Adrianna and I have been cooking together for years. This, however is our first recipe we have cooked together for the blog. "The Homemaking Fashionists" on location (Adrianna's house)!
Spicy "Thai" Noodles
1 box of linguine or spaghetti
1-2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sesame oil
6 tablespoons honey
6 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1-2 carrots peeled and shredded
3/4 cup chopped peanuts
toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain well.
2. Heat oils and crushed red pepper in a small sauce pan for 3 minutes. Strain red pepper and reserve oil.
3. Whisk honey and soy sauce in with the oil.
4. Toss together with noodles.
5. Top each bowl with green onions, cilantro, carrots, peanuts and sesame seeds.
So we had to modify the recipe a bit.. We forgot to get sesame seeds. And neither of us had a wire strainer so we tried to get some of the pepper out with a slotted spoon, much to our avail. But they tasted great! If you plan to leave the pepper in, you should only use 1 tablespoon because it was still pretty hot with just one. I'd imagine if the pepper had been strained like the recipe recommended, it wouldn't have been as spicy. The original recipe also instructed us to chill the noodles in the refrigerator over night and serve cold... but we were hungry right away. And I thought the noodles were good served warm. I think these noodles would be great with chicken.
