Easy Peanut Butter Thai Noodles

     I love using this flavorful sauce to create a fast and easy delicious dinner.


   I may work at home but life still gets crazy here. The kids get home from school and I am still busy working on my computer. I get them started on their homework while I finish up my work. The next thing I know it is 5:30 PM and my husband will be home in 15 minutes. Yikes, I don't even have dinner ready, yet alone what I am going to make. The panic sets in as I know if dinner is not made or in the process of being made then hubby will start snacking as after a long day of work he is hungry. Have no fear, I have an easy and fast dinner up my sleeve that my husband will think I spent all day on. I always have certain items in my pantry and fridge for days that I don't have time to cook. The first item is a delicious Thai Peanut cooking sauce that adds an awesome exotic flavor to meat, veggies, tofu, noodles and more. This gluten free cooking sauce tastes just like my homemade Thai peanut butter sauce that I use when I make spring rolls. I like San-J's sauce better as my takes a long time to make. The next ingredient is ramen noodles. These are a staple in my house as my boys can cook these in the microwave for an easy snack. I also always have fresh veggies like baby carrots and broccoli in the fridge.The last ingredient in my fast meal tofu. I love cooking with tofu so I always have a package or two in my fridge.


  The Thai Peanut sauce is just one of the many gluten free, non-GMO cooking sauces that San-J produces. I love easy it is to add great flavor to my meals with these cooking sauces. The Thai Peanut sauce is my favorite and I use it in so many dishes like spring rolls, tofu, vegetables, stir fry, noodles, and even pizza. San-J has so many delicious recipes on their website that helps get me cooking on nights when I don't feel like cooking. Take a look at some of the other cooking sauces than San-J makes. These are just some of the many Gluten Free and Non-GMO sauces that they carry. Their product line up includes table condiments, marinades, salad dressings, soups, sauces, and rice crackers, there's something just right for every meal! You can find their products at most stores too, like Target, Whole Foods, Kroger, Sprouts, and Albertsons.



So now onto that easy fast delicious dinner recipe. I bet you even have most of the ingredients in your pantry, if not, stock up on them so you can make dinner in a flash.

                       Easy Peanut Butter Thai Noodles
                                                                                              Serves 4
                           Ingredients:
                                            2 packages dried ramen noodles, use rice noodles if gluten sensitive
                                            1 pound package baby carrots
                                            1- 12 ounces package extra firm tofu
                                            5 tablespoons San-J Thai Peanut sauce

     Cook the ramen noodles in the microwave according to package directions, omitting the seasoning (save that for another day when you need broth) and drain thoroughly. Set the noodles aside. Cook the carrots in the microwave and dice them into small pieces. While the carrots are cooking, drain the water from the tofu and cut into bite-size pieces. Then place the noodles, carrots, and tofu in a microwave safe dish and gently stir in the San-J Thai Peanut sauce. You can add more sauce if needed for flavor. This sauce is very flavorful so taste first to decide if you need to add more sauce. Then heat this up for a couple of minutes in the microwave.

Notes: you can use other vegetables like broccoli or mushrooms. You can also substitute cooked shrimp or chicken for the tofu. The noodles and the veggies may not combine well together so to serve just place some noodles on a plate and then top with the veggies and tofu.


So the next time you need to get dinner on the table quick, think of this recipe. Go check out San-J's website and tell me which recipe you would like to try.
