These rice noodles with peanut sauce are full of flavor and protein. I love a dish that I can make ahead of time and bring to room temperature to serve for dinner. The sauce is the perfect combination of salty, sweet, and nutty. This is typically considered an Asian dish, but I’ll serve it with just about anything.
This recipe is adapted from one I found in the The Mom 100 Cookbook by Katie Workman. This cookbook includes lots of great recipes for feeding busy families. Many times when I’m preparing dinner for my family, I make a basic version of the recipe, and I separate out certain ingredients that my husband and I will like but one or both of my children won’t want. Workman calls this “the fork in the road,” where you branch off in different directions to customize one recipe for multiple palates.
It can be a fine line between making different meals for everyone in the family and making one dinner that can be adapted to different tastes. I often live by “the fork in the road” mentality, and I love how this cookbook describes different variations for so many types of recipes.
