Peanut Butter Noodles
1 pound udon noodles (or spaghetti)
1 small garlic clove, smashed
1-inch fresh ginger, peeled and smashed
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2/3 cup warm water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cucumber, peeled and sliced (sugar snap peas or cabbage would also work)
1/4 cup peanuts, chopped
hot sauce (sambal is a good choice)
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook according to the directions on the packaging. When done, drain in a colander.
2. With the motor running on a food processor or blender, add the garlic and ginger. When they are finely chopped, add the peanut butter, water, soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, sugar, and pepper flakes. Process until smooth.
3. In a large bowl, toss the noodles with the sauce. Divide the noodles between four large bowls, and garnish with the sliced cucumber and chopped peanuts. Serve with hot sauce of choice.

Excellent hot or cold. You can easily adjust the level of heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of red pepper flakes and hot sauce.
