About a year ago, I came across this lovely spicy peanut tofu stir fry recipe from Little Spice Jar and immediately fell in love. I even made a huge batch of it for my brother’s college graduation party—the tray was completely empty by the end of the day. Since I really love Thai flavors in food—especially peanut sauce and Pad Thai—I decided to combine the textures and flavors into a noodle dish that has easily become one of my go-to recipes since I usually have all of the ingredients handy.
Not only is this noodle recipe great for a dinner at home, it does great for leftovers and work lunches. I love piling up mine with extra cilantro, peanuts and a squeeze of lime for that extra crunchy, zingy pop of flavor.
Another great reason to keep this recipe handy is that it can be easily adapted to whatever ingredients you have on hand. Feel free to play it up or swap out the veggies I used for mushrooms, broccoli, bean sprouts—whatever is in your fridge—or add some meat if that’s your style.
