Spicy Thai Peanut Noodles from OnceAgainNutButter.com

½ cup Once Again Organic Peanut Butter
½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped (I think I would use another spice next time, like basil. I remain not a fan of cilantro)
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup sweet chili sauce
¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
1 clove garlic, chopped

1 8 oz box or bag Pad Thai rice noodles (I used fettuccine)

1 cup carrots, julienned or shredded
1 cup red bell peppers, julienned
1 cup snow peas, julienned
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 lime, wedged

1. Place the peanut butter, cilantro, water, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, rice vinegar, sugar, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot chili sauce and garlic in a blender.  Purée until smooth.  Set aside.
2. Heat the vegetable oil over medium high heat.  Add the vegetables, season lightly if desired, and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until vegetables have softened but still maintain some crunch.  Set aside.
3. Cook the noodles in simmering salted water for 1-2 minutes.  Rice noodles cook very quickly.  Drain the noodles and place back in the pot.  Toss with the peanut sauce.
4. To serve, arrange the noodles in a shallow bowl or on a plate.  Top with a large scoop of the vegetables.  Garnish with a lime wedge.

This was delicious! I added some chicken to make it a complete meal. There was so much sauce I mixed it with the veggies. I'd rather not have to do that next time.
