Ingredients for Hoisin Noodles
For this recipe you will need:
- Rice noodles: I use 3 ramen cakes. My favorite is Lotus Foods "Millet & Brown Rice" ramen noodles. Or simply use 8 oz. of your favorite rice noodles.
- Green onion (scallion)
- Sesame seeds
- Hoisin sauce: Be sure to use one you enjoy as it is most of the flavor in this dish.
- Peanut butter: Creamy and natural.
- Pure maple syrup
I encourage you to play around to find your favorite flavors and variations:
- Add sautéed vegetables on the side: Shredded carrot, snow peas, cabbage, mung bean sprouts, etc.
- Add freshly grated ginger to the sauce.
- Top with crushed peanuts or cashews for crunch.
- Garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
- Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for spice.
- Serve with Baked Tofu.
