Backpacker Thai peanut noodle recipe on 11/08/2005 13:32:09 MST Print View

Several months ago, there was a recipe for Thai noodles with Peanut sauce in Backpacker. The recipe looked pretty good. But I left that issue on a plane. Does anyone have that Backpacker? If so, could you please be kind enough to post the recpie here?

Thank you!

Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce on 11/08/2005 20:08:16 MST Print View

Backpacker Magazine August 2005
1/2 c Peanut Butter (chunky OR creamy)
2 tbs Tamari
4 tsp Crushed Garlic
3 tbs Cider Vinegar
2 tsp Brown Sugar
3/4 tsp dried crushed red pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or 1 tbs dried cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
12 oz soba noodles or your favorite pasta

At Home: Mix together all ingredients in a bowl except noodles. Pack in plastic container or bottle (recipe makes 1 3/4 cups sauce). Note: Sauce will keep for 2 days unrefriderated; the vinegar in the recipe acts as a preservative.

In Camp: Cook noodles or pasta; drain 1/2 cup hot water into measuring cup, and scatter the rest. Empty sauce into pot, add hot water, and toss toroughly. Serves two.

Variations: For a subtle change in flavor, substitute dried chives or grated ginger root for cilantro.

Btw..ramen noodles work well with this instead of soba noodles. You can make the sauce at home, carry it with you, and either boil up the ramen, or as a I do..pop the noodles in a freezer bag with 1 1/2 cups boiling water, let sit for 10 minutes then drain and combine with the sauce. It works nice! (Though my version would feed one, 2 pkgs ramen would feed 2)
