Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce:
Mince garlic and grate ginger. (I use this microplane grater
for ginger.) In a medium/large mixing bowl, add all peanut sauce ingredients except water.
Heat 3/4 cup water to just under boiling. Add hot water a couple tablespoons at a time, slowly whisking and working the mixture together.
Continue adding water and whisking until sauce is thin enough to mix the noodles in. (I usually add about 1/2 cup to 2/3 cup hot water.) Adjust flavors if needed.
