Quick & Easy Asian Noodles ™

This is great as a quick side dish or anytime.

This can be serve hot or even cold. I've used rice noodles, but you can also use thin noodles as well. I've used unsalted peanuts, but you can omit peanuts if you have an allergy.

1 package rice noodles
1 T low sodium soy sauce
1/8 - 1/4 tsp each: salt, pepper
1/8 - 1/4 c oil (canola) adjust amount needed
1/2 - 1 tsp each: sesame oil, lime juice
Pinch each: turmeric, red pepper flakes
1/4 c. each: chopped onions, chopped green onions
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1/8 - 1/4 c. shelled peanuts (optional)
1/8 tsp. diced fresh ginger root
1 clove garlic crushed and chopped

Cook rice noodles according to package.

Peel, rinse and chop onions. Rinse and chop green onions. Shell peanuts if needed. Peel, crush, chop garlic.

Remove noodles from heat, drain noodles in colander and place in bowl. Add onions and green onions to bowl. 

Combine: soy sauce, salt, pepper, oil, sesame oil, lime juice, turmeric, pepper flakes, ginger root, garlic in small bowl.  Stir with fork to mix well.  Pour over noodles, toss to coat. 

To serve: top noodles with peanuts and seeds. Toss well. 

Serves 4.
