  • 2 teaspoons agave or other sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce like Sriracha, or more or less to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups frozen edamame
  • Crushed peanuts or sesame seeds to garnish, optional
  • 1 16-ounce package of your favorite noodles, cooked according to package (spaghetti, angel hair, soba, and udon all work well)

Method

  1. Add all sauce ingredients to a blender or food processor, or use an immersion blender to combine well. If you like a thick sauce, use less water. Set aside.
  2. Steam carrots, broccoli, and edamame for 4 minutes or until the broccoli is bright green.
  3. Toss the vegetables with the noodles and pour the peanut sauce over it. Serve sprinkled with crushed peanuts or sesame seeds.
