#MeatlessMonday-Soba Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I love vegetarian Asian food. When my youngest was little, she was a huge fan of noodles. (Lucky her that she got a mom who has ten kinds of noodles in the pantry!) This peanut sauce works well on almost any noodle. Soba is a favorite but you can use rice noodles, bean thread noodles, udon, pretty much anything. Add some baked tofu and you have a meal! Enjoy!

Spicy Peanut Sauce 

1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp lime or lemon juice
1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced and crushed
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 cup chopped spinach

Whisk all ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil, constantly stirring, until sauce is thickened.

Prepare noodles according to directions. Drain and top with peanut sauce. Add veggies, tofu, or whatever strikes your fancy!
