We had this for dinner last night! So delicious!
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can) seeded, chopped (I didn't seed them!)
1 teaspoon adobo sauce (from can of chilies)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 cups water
2 medium carrots, cut into julienne strips (I just used the bagged ones)
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into julienne strips (I used green)
1 package (8-10 oz) Chinese curly noodles. (I used chuka soba noodles)
2 tablespoons chopped peanuts (I completely forgot, oops!!)
1. In medium bowl, mix peanut butter, apple juice, soy sauce, chilies and adobo sauce until smooth. Stir in cilantro.
2. In 2-quart saucepan, heat water to boiling. Add carrots and bell pepper; cook one minute. With slotted spoon, remove carrots and bell pepper from water. Add noodles to water; cook and drain as directed on package.
3. Toss noodles with peanut butter mixture; divide noodles into 4 individual bowls. Top with carrots and bell pepper. Sprinkle with peanuts.
