RECIPES

I love how dinner parties bring friends and family together and this recipe for Spicy Asian Peanut Noodles will definitely get everyone’s attention.

In the midst of talking about work, kids and upcoming adventures, we all took our first bite and were immediately silenced by the amazing combination of flavors. We all had at least 2 or 3 servings and I immediately asked Bomie for the recipe so I could make it again and share it with you.

My advice is to chop the veggies first. Then, prep the sauce while the noodles are boiling. It all comes together so easily that way. Heat lovers: I added Sriracha to my plate for a little extra kick. I don’t recommend adding it to the whole batch since everyone’s spice level is different. It’s delicious with and without the extra kick.
